I’m trying to help a colleague use an OpenKIM model in LAMMPS. We decided the easiest approach seemed like installing OpenKIM with conda (since we have to have it for other things), which we did with the nearly trivial instructions at OpenKIM · Obtaining KIM Models · Interatomic Potentials and Force Fields
We then tried to add the model to lammps with
make lib-kim args="-p /path/to/conda -a Glue_Ercolessi_Adams_Al__MO_324507536345_001". That fails with:
subprocess.CalledProcessError: Command '/home/Software/python/anaconda3/bin/kim-api-collections-management install system Glue_Ercolessi_Adams_Al__MO_324507536345_001' returned non-zero exit status 1.
kim-api-collections-management command manually gives
*** ERROR *** Glue_Ercolessi_Adams_Al__MO_324507536345_001 found at openkim.org is not compatible with this version of the KIM API.
Is the conda version out of date or are we doing something else wrong
