Hi guys,

I am having errors when running Gamess with Webmo. My Gamess config and check was successful but Webmo doesn't seem to like it and is giving the following raw output. i contacted the Gamess community but they advised me to request advice from Webmo forums. the error is as follows:

Distributed Data Interface kickoff program.
Initiating 8 compute processes on 1 nodes to run the following command:
/usr/local/gamess/gamess/gamess.01.x /home/webmo/lhicks/8/input

YOU MUST ASSIGN GENERIC NAME PUNCH WITH A SETENV.
EXECUTION OF GAMESS TERMINATED -ABNORMALLY- AT Mon Sep 10 11:02:11 2012
CPU 0: STEP CPU TIME= 0.00 TOTAL CPU TIME= 0.0 ( 0.0 MIN)
TOTAL WALL CLOCK TIME= 0.0 SECONDS, CPU UTILIZATION IS 0.00%
DDI Process 0: error code 911
ddikick.x: application process 0 quit unexpectedly.
ddikick.x: Fatal error detected.
The error is most likely to be in the application, so check for
input errors, disk space, memory needs, application bugs, etc.
ddikick.x will now clean up all processes, and exit...
DDI Process 1: terminated upon request.
DDI Process 2: terminated upon request.
DDI Process 4: terminated upon request.
DDI Process 5: terminated upon request.
DDI Process 3: terminated upon request.
DDI Process 6: terminated upon request.
ddikick.x: Sending kill signal to DDI processes.
ddikick.x: Execution terminated due to error(s).

Obviously stating an error within the 'PUNCH' but on inspection appears to be correct.

Thanks in advance

WebMO needs the GAMESS 'rungms' script to properly run. This should be in the same directory as the gamess.01.x binary.

Hi Schmidt, I am running a test job: /usr/local/gamess/gamess/rungms exam01.inp > exam01.log
Which completes successfully placing the output in exam01.log.

Also the 'rungms' is in the same directory as 'gamess.01.x'

Is there anything else which can be causing this error in the raw output? Thank you.

The file permissions on 'rungms' are strange. Most likely it is not readable by your webserver. Do a 'chmod 0755 rungms'.

I modified the permissions on the rungms but am still having the same error. I have tried 'googling' the error but there doesn't seem to be a great deal of information out there. I am on the verge of cracking up! :-)

Please send me a copy of your rungms script to support@webmo.net
