OpenKim Installation

I have installed OpenKim 2.0 in my Lammps src folder, but lmp_mpi is not working after the installation, which it used to be for other potentials.

Even make mpi is not working.

If somebody knows it please help me out.

I am attaching the screenshot of it.


Are you using traditional make? If so, I would recommend switching to CMake. You should then install the KIM API separately from LAMMPS first, then once you build LAMMPS with CMake, it should automatically find the KIM API. Is there any reason you are using such old versions of LAMMPS and KIM in the first place?

Thank you!

It worked.
