ROMS on AMD linux pc with ifort 8.1

#1 Post by shilo » Tue Dec 28, 2004 6:50 am

Hi to all ,
Did any of you try to run roms on AMD pc using intel fortran compiler?
I compiled roms on my AMD using ifort 8.1 but failed to run the model, with severe error 168. With pgf90 the model runs great.
Thank in advance for any help

I compiled ROMS with ifort 8.1 but I couldn't probe it. Could you contact with me at in order to make the same test?

Thank you in advance,

As you can see from the benchmark results at
I had no problem running ROMS on AMD with Intel Fortran 8.1.

I used

FFLAGS="-ip -O2 -xW"

if that is useful.

Are you using OpenMP or MPI? If MPI, could it be that you are using LAM compiled with PGI, but then using Ifort 8.1 for ROMS? I think there could be some issues there, since in the LAM doc it says you should use the same compiler for both.
