Hi All,
I was having a similar problem as Tiju with dynmat.x for molecular 
systems (i.e. a water molecule).

There seems to be a really simple solution:  In the input file for the 
SCF job it appears that some symmetry must be defined.  For the water 
molecule I now use simple cubic:


rather than manually defining CELL_PARAMETERS and making it simple cubic 
by writing in the 3x3 matrix.

Hope it helps,  Phil Shemella

p.s.  Thanks to Prof's Baroni, Marzari, Fratesi, and Giannozzi for 
giving great seminars and labs at the Urbana summer school.
