Hi Iain,

Thank you again for your help.

> Further to what I reported this morning, I found that the MKL release 2017.1.132 is buggy.  I was able to get a successful build using the compiler from the 2017.1.132 release and MKL from the previous (2017.0.098) release.

I asked our local administrator if it was possible to install the
previous version of the intel compiler, or at least of the MKL
libraries.

>> I got hold of the 2017.1.132 release and ran a regtest of the latest trunk code.  Barring one regtest with numerical problems, it ran fine, so I don’t think there is something fundamentally broken with that version.  Could you send your input file, and try running with the GLOBAL%PRINT_LEVEL HIGH so some more information is printed out before the error occurs?  Maybe someone can spot the problem.  Did you have any success running this input with previous builds of CP2K?

Please find enclosed the input and ouput files obtained with
GLOBAL%PRINT_LEVEL HIGH. I tried with CP2K version 4.1 and 3.0 and got
similar results...

Hopefully I will soon have access to the previous MKL release, and
keep you informed. In the meantime, I'm using a gfortran+acml
compilation, which runs fine (although more slowly)...

Best regards,
Laurent
