Error adding YSZ model

Hello everyone,
I am new to using LAMMPS and OpenKIM. I am trying to use “Dipole_Umeno_YSZ__MO_394669891912_001”. I followed all the steps mentioned in the installation guide and I am able to run other models except the one mentioned above. I am currently working with “lammps-23-June-2022” and “kim_api 2.2.1”. When trying to add this model, I get an error message:

(base) [email protected]:~/Documents/lammps-23Jun2022/lib/kim/installed-2.2.1/bin$ kim-api-collections-management install system Dipole_Umeno_YSZ__MO_394669891912_001
*** ERROR *** Dipole_Umeno_YSZ__MO_394669891912_001 found at openkim.org is not compatible with this version of the KIM API.

So, I tried working with an older version of lammps and OpenKIM. I tried using “lammps-22Aug-2018” and “kim_api 1.9.5” and got the following error message:

(base) [email protected]:~/Documents/lammps-22Aug18/lib/kim/installed-kim-api-v1.9.5/bin$ kim-api-collections-management install system Dipole_Umeno_YSZ__MO_394669891912_001
*** ERROR *** Dipole_Umeno_YSZ__MO_394669891912_001 found at openkim.org requires version 1.6 of the KIM API which is not compatible with the installed version 2 of the KIM API.

So I am now trying to use “kim_api 1.6.0” with “lammps-22Aug-2018” and got the following error:

(base) [email protected]:~/Downloads/lammps-22Aug18/lib/kim/kim-api-v1.6.0$ make add-Dipole_Umeno_YSZ__MO_394669891912_001

I would really appreciate if someone could help me this.
Thank you for your time!

Hello,

Thanks for your message. It looks like openkim.org used to have tgz files in addition to txz files, but now there are only txz files. The kim-api-v1.6.0 is looking for the tgz file and can’t find it.

We’re working on a 2.0 version of the Umeno model, but it may take some time for us to finalize it. So, in the meantime the best I can suggest is for you to use a more “manual” process to get this model.

To do this you’ll want to download the Umeno *.tgz file and unpack it into the kim-api-v1.6.0/src/models/ subdirectory. I believe that once you do this, and then build and install the kim-api the model will also be built and installed. Hope that works for you. Let us know if you run into further problems.

Best,

Ryan
