Dear Ye, thanks to contribute with your feedback.
1. Yes it could be done. Maybe Filippo has in mind a clear way to do this.
Locally we started to use spack (https://github.com/LLNL/spack) to
install software on the cluster.
In theory, spack should be able to solve the problem of dependencies
2. I developed mainly with Intel, but I'll try GCC a soon as I can.
On the AUSURF112 benchmark my output is:
[nvarini at deneb2 AUSURF112]$ ls -lrtah tempdir/gk.hdf5
-rw-r--r-- 1 nvarini scitas-ge 3.0M 29. Aug 16:19 tempdir/gk.hdf5
[nvarini at deneb2 AUSURF112]$ ls -lrtah tempdir/ausurf.save/
Au.pbe-nd-van.UPF data-file.xml K00001/
charge-density.hdf5 gvectors.dat K00002/
Is the file gk.hdf5 what you are looking for? Is it created in your
