OpenKIM Repository updated to KIM API V2

Hi again,

You write on the web page that “All OpenKIM content (models, test, test results) on has been migrated to the newly-released version 2.0.0-beta.3 of the KIM API package”

However, I do not get anything when I try to install all models:

    $ kim-api-v2-collections-management install user OpenKIM


Should I not get a lot of models this way? I would use them to stress-test Asap.

Best regards


Hi Jakob,

Thanks for your report. It turns out to be a bug in the collections management tool. This line in utils/ lists @PROJECT_MAJOR_VERSION@ instead of the proper cmake variable name, @PROJECT_VERSION_MAJOR@. We’ll get this fix pushed soon, but you can also adjust this line yourself and then redo the cmake build/install of the KIM API. Or, if you prefer, you can just directly adjust the collections management tool (which is just a bash script) you’ve already installed by changing line 38 to read:


Apologies for the inconvenience,

Hi Dan,

Thank you very much. That did indeed fix it (patching the script manually).

Best regards
