GAMESS(US), ifort and MKL on Mac issue


Hello. To maximally optimize performance of quantum chemistry calculations I decided to compile GAMESS(US) using Intel toolchain and MKL on Mac, and starting lked I get the following issue:

./lked gamess 00

GAMESS will be linked into the binary file gamess.00.x.
The name of the linker on this machine is ifort,
and the linker options are "-i8".
Object code list begins "gamess.o unport.o",
followed by   BLAS object code " ",
followed by LAPACK object code "dgeev.o dgesvd.o zheev.o",
followed by VECTOR object code " ",
followed by memory object code "zunix.o",
followed by the standard GAMESS object code list,

Unfortunately, there was an error while linking GAMESS.

Could someone please help me with ./lked script correcting to make this work? I just don't have sufficient skills to make some needed corrections by myself.

Hi Dmitry,

What compiler are you using ? 

If possible, could you please try

 ${MKLROOT}/lib/libmkl_intel_ilp64.a ${MKLROOT}/lib/libmkl_sequential.a ${MKLROOT}/lib/libmkl_core.a -lpthread -lm -ldl

without the --start-group and --end-group. to see if any change.

Here are two on-line article for your reference:

Building the GAMESS with Intel® Compilers, Intel® MKL and Intel® MPI on Linux (you can ignore MPI part if you don't need)

and the similar issue:
