Many thanks for your reply. After some more investigation, I think you
suspect correctly. I tried running the following example
With the same result. I reduced to an H2 molecule and it finally worked.
There must be something taking a lot of memory in the HF calculations
(given that this example is not a hybrid).
As for the hardware, I am running cp2k.popt on 8 cores of 4 GB each with
mpi parallelization. I also tried it on one core of 64 GB to no avail.
Surely that should be plenty for a simple ethene molecule? I am concerned
that at this rate the full might of my local computer cluster will not be
enough for a periodic molecular calculation.
Could someone try my input example to see if there is an issue with my
installation? On my machine it usually fails after a few seconds to a
