Installing software modules with EasyBuild as a user

NOTE: If you have read the official EasyBuild instructions there will have been mention of a configuration file. When installing software as a user, you do NOT need an EasyBuild configuration file, and it can even cause problems to have one.

This guide will let you install software (and create a module for easy loading) to your $HOME/Public directory, under a subdirectory called easybuild.

VASP - Kebnekaise examples

Example for running VASP on Kebnekaise

VASP has been built in both a normal CPU-only version and a GPU-enabled version.

Depending on which toolchain is loaded one or the other is available.

Use ml spider vasp to see which versions are available, and then look at the specific versions with ml spider VASP/<some-version>, to see which toolchains are available.

Installed Compilers

Installed Compilers

There are compilers available for Fortran 77, Fortran 90, Fortran 95, C, and C++. The compilers can produce both general-purpose code and architecture-specific optimized code to improve performance (loop-level optimizations, inter-procedural analysis and cache optimizations).

Accessing software with Lmod

Accessing software with Lmod

Since October 2016 (Kebnekaise) and April 2017 (Abisko) we are using a set of tools called EasyBuild and Lmod to install and manage software packages and their accompanying modules.

This results in a different naming of the modules themselves and also a completely different module layout, compared to how it was done with Tcl modules.

The modules are installed hierarchically in such a way that not all modules are visible initially.
