lib64 directory for OpenKIM API


I am needing to compile and install OpenKIM on the High Performance Computing Virtual Lab (HPCVL).

I appeared to have success in installing OpenKIM in my home directory, but when I ran the OpenKIM example tests, I consistently get the following error in all tests:

/usr/lib64/ version GFORTRAN_1.4' not found /usr/lib64/ version GLIBCXX_3.4.15’ not found
/usr/lib64/ version `GFORTRAN_1.4’ not found

I have /usr/lib64 in my PATH, but that did not fix the above errors. I was wondering what you might recommend.

Thank you,


This is not really a kim api issue, it seems that the libraries are missing on your system.

Maybe you are compiling on one machine and trying to run on another? See if you can compile and run on the same machine. Also, maybe check if you can compile another c++ or fortran program and see if it runs.

Your PATH var. should have no effect on this problem.

Keep up informed on your progress and good luck!
