[DFTB-Plus-User] What's the "executable x86_64-linux-ifort" file for?

Dear Wu Xing,

  as already mentioned in a recent posting, the problem why you can't
invoke dftb+ is, because the directory where it is, is very probably not
in your PATH. I'd suggest to copy the executable (dftb+) you obtain
after the compilation from the directory
your_dftb_source/_obj-x86_64-linux-ifort to your bin directory
$HOME/bin. Then, there is a chance, that you'll be able to execute the
program. Is it still not the case, please use


to run the code.

 This is a precompiled binary for x86_64 (AMD Opteron or Intel Core2)
with Linux. You can use one instead of your compiled binary if you want.
Nevertheless, also that program must be in a directory which is
specified in the PATH environment variable. If you have problems to run
it, you should eventually contact your local system administrator for
help, as we can't see all the details of your local system from here.

 Best regards,


Ps. Also please make sure, you're sending your posts for the list to
dftb-plus-user at dftb-plus.info and NOT to
dftb-plus-user-owner at dftb-plus.info, as latter is the adminstrator mail
