[Pw_forum] about one "fatal error"

Dear prof. Giannozzi
  Thank you very much for your kind attention. I am afraid that I can
only have the access to the machine of "SGI origin3900". But the problem
seems solved, as I have mentioned before, when I change to 13 nodes that
can divide the 52 reduced k points. And my calculation goes on well with
13 nodes. Then, that may tell me the error belongs to the machine, or
"communication" as Derek has mentioned before.

Best Wishes!

Yours Sincerely!
