[Pw_forum] Another SCF convergence problem

I'm trying to perform a SCf calculation on a carbon nanotube cluster
(metallic system), and no matter what i do the results do not
I've tried changing the mixing factor, add a smearing, tried a
different type of charge mixing, change number of k points etc.

The input file I've attached is the closest it ever reached towards
convergence with accuracy better than 0.1 Ry...but ultimately failing
to converge. 
Can you please suggest some solutions. The input file is attached
this time.
