Compiling VASP 5.3.3 with OpenMPI 1.6.5 and Intel 12.1.5


Vienna Ab initio Simulation Package (VASP) is a computer program for atomic scale materials modelling, e.g. electronic structure calculations and quantum-mechanical molecular dynamics, from first principles.

To compile VASP, I will be using the following

  1. Intel Compiler XE 12.1.5
  2. OpenMPI 1.6.5
  3. Maths Kernel Library (MKL)
  4. CentOS 6.3 / RH 6.3

A. Prerequisites

Step 1: Install and Compile Intel XE Compilers 12.1.5 and OpenMPI 1.6.5

  1. Compiling OpenMPI 1.6.5 with Intel 12.1.5 on CentO 6

Step 2: Intel MKL FFTW wrappers

  1. Compile and Build FFTW3 wrapper routines on MKL implementation of FFT

B. Compiling VASP Libraries

Assuming you have unpacked the VASP files. Here is may make file

.SUFFIXES: .inc .f .F

CFLAGS = -O
FFLAGS = -Os -FI
FREE   = -FR

C. Compiling VASP

1. Copy the Makefile from makefile.linux_ifc_P4 in the vasp software.

# cp makefile.linux_ifc_P4 Makefile

2. Edit the Makefile

FC (~ line 62)

#-----------------------------------------------------------------------
# fortran compiler and linker

# fortran linker
FCL=$(FC) -mkl

FFLAGS (~line 108)

#-----------------------------------------------------------------------
# general fortran flags  (there must a trailing blank on this line)
# byterecl is strictly required for ifc, since otherwise
# the WAVECAR file becomes huge

FFLAGS =  -FR -names lowercase -assume byterecl

BLAS (~ line 149)

# BLAS

# faster linking and available from at least version 11
BLAS= -mkl=sequential

LAPACK (~ line 158)

# LAPACK from mkl, usually faster and contains scaLAPACK as well
#LAPACK= $(MKL_PATH)/libmkl_intel_lp64.a
LAPACK =

SCALAPACK (~ line 233)

LIBRARIES (~line 238)

Parallel FFT (~ line 246)
