Failed to convert GOTPCREL relocation: building cesm1_2_2_1 on Cheyenne

Hello,

I am trying to build cesm1_2_2_1 on Cheyenne from /glade/p/cesm/releases/cesm1_2_2_1/scripts/. However, I got the following error message. Has there been any further update on this issue?

ld: failed to convert GOTPCREL relocation; relink with --no-relax
/glade/u/home/slubis/cases/f2000.FW.f19_f19.001/Tools/Makefile:629: recipe for target '/glade/scratch/slubis/f2000.FW.f19_f19.001/bld/cesm.exe' failed gmake: *** [/glade/scratch/slubis/f2000.FW.f19_f19.001/bld/cesm.exe] Error 1

Best,
Sandro

Hi Sandro,

Based on the discussion found here:


I believe that the issue might be that the PIO library needs to be updated from pio1_8_12 to pio1_8_14. This can be done by copying that version of CESM, or by running the following command in your location of choice on Cheyenne:

svn co https://svn-ccsm-models.cgd.ucar.edu/cesm1/release_tags/cesm1_2_2_1/

and then cd-ing to your copied or downloaded CESM directory, and running the following:

Code:
cd models/utils
mv pio pio.old
svn co https://github.com/NCAR/ParallelIO.git/tags/pio1_8_14/pio

After that, go ahead and try to create and build the same case as before, but from this version of CESM1.2.2.1 instead of the one in /glade/p/cesm/releases.

Hope that helps, and good luck with the build!

Jesse

I tried to copy it into my home/cases directory, I keep getting those errors, asking for username and password (multiple times) but nothing happens.
Any suggestions for this issue?

Best,
Sandro

Hi Sandro,

Sorry, I forgot to mention that you'll need to register in order to gain access to the subversion repository. After registering you'll be sent a username/password that you can use to access the needed files. The registration form itself can be found online here:


If of course registration (or the username/password you receive) doesn't work please let us know.

Thanks, and have a great day!

Hi Jesse,

Is it possible that you update PIO library (pio1_8_12 to pio1_8_14) directly on the /glade/p/cesm/releases/cesm1_2_2_1/,
so that everyone else who wants to use CESM1_2_2_1 on Cheyenne will not have similar issue?

Thanks,
Sandro

Hi Sandro,

I do not have write permissions for that directory, so I cannot modify it. Plus in all likelihood NCAR will want to keep that model version as-is, in order to provide source code provenance (as it has likely been copied to other machines).

Instead, I have downloaded the CESM1.2.2.1 source code myself and performed the associated PIO modifications. You should be able to copy it to your own directory on cheyenne from here:

/glade/work/nusbaume/SE_projects/forum_files/cesm1_2_2_1

Hope that helps!

Hi Jesse,

I just want to report that the build was failed again today even using the associated PIO modifications. I found the same errors as before,
has the PIO library been updated again on the machine?

ld: ccsm_comp_mod.F90:(.text+0x50a): relocation truncated to fit: R_X86_64_PC32 against symbol `ccsm_comp_mod_mp_cktime_acc_' defined in COMMON section in ccsm_comp_mod.o
ld: ccsm_comp_mod.F90:(.text+0x512): additional relocation overflows omitted from the output
ld: failed to convert GOTPCREL relocation; relink with --no-relax

Thanks
Sandro

Hi Sandro,

Apologies for the month-long delay! I was temporarily pulled away from the forums due to other work assignments. Did you end up finding a solution to this issue, or do you still need help with it?

Thanks!

Jesse
