Installing NEURON on cluster

Post by catubc »

Hi everyone

I've been trying for over 1 month to get NEURON to work on a cluster in Canada (Westgrid). I'm getting close but I still get errors like:

Code: Select all

dlopen failed - 
x86_64/.libs/ cannot read file data: Is a directory

Code: Select all

/neuron/nrn-7.3/x86_64/lib/ undefined symbol: __intel_sse2_strchr
I've read an old 2008 post that on clusters I may need to recompile NEURON with this "linux_nrnmech=no" option

Code: Select all

./configure --prefix=`pwd` --without-iv --disable-shared --with-paranrn  linux_nrnmech=no
Before I spend another day or two recompiling everything was hoping to hear from someone with experience running NEURON on clusters... Any advice is appreciated.


UPDATE: The issue may be cluster side... working on it, will post updates.
