Error while trying a basic trial run

Reported by: aschurer Owned by: lois
Component: UM Model Keywords:
Cc: Platform:
UM Version: 6.1


I'm trying to run the UM on hector using PUMA and am having a few problems with a basic trial run.

I'm following the advice on the website:
and am trying to run a copy of the job xczia, (Hector N96) found in PUMA UMUI under the userid umui.
I changed userid, tic code and email address, and submitted the job.
I ended up with the following error in the .leave file:


pathf90-3.1 ERROR: /opt/pathscale/lib/3.1/be died due to signal 9
pathf90-3.1 ERROR: Probably caused by running out of swap space — check /var/log/messages
make[1]: * [dagbl.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/work/n02/n02/aschurer/xepwa/compile_xepwa'
* [World] Error 2

qsmain(305.924): * Make has failed. Exiting


Any ideas as to what the problem could be?

Thanks, Andrew

Hello Andrew,

Have you setup your .profile on HECToR to set up the UM environment files? I suspect this is the cause of your problem.

If you want to you could copy mine
cp /home/n02/n02/lois/.profile .

and then you can comment out and uncomment the particular version of the UM you are using and then run your new .profile file
. ./.profile

Let us know if this solves the problem.

Hi Lois,
Thanks for the reply,
I've made some alterations to my .profile as you suggested and the second run I attempted seems to have worked OK. So I think that this has solved the problem.
