Re^8: Firefly-8.0.1 is not running on system with Intel MPI-4.1.X...

Pavlo Solntsev

Dear Siddheshwar.

I attached a script to configure FF. It will create a configuration file in your home folder ~/.firefly.conf with all default configurations.

Place the script into a folder which is in PATH variable and make sure it is executable.
Start using the script by typing

qff2 inputfile

If ~/.firefly.conf is not available script will create it by asking common questions. Before you start make sure you now MPI home directory. The directory with bin and lib directories (32-bit). NBO license information,f if you have it. If you want to use more then one CPU make sure appropriate MPI libraries is installed together with mpirun/mpiexec. In your case IntelMPI.

Depends on your answer, you will get file .sh or .pbs. First is suitable for submission without PBS, while second is suitable for PBS.

You can overwrite default parameters by providing appropriate parameters to the script. See qff2 --help.

Also, you can create new parameters in ~/.firefly.conf by executing qff2 -s or change parameters manually in ~/.firefly.conf by using any text editor.

Also, make sure you have Firefly linked with IntelMPI(!).

Let me know if you have any problem.
