internal error

internal error

I get the following error when trying to compile a fortran subroutine:
internal error: Please visit '' for assistance.

This same code works on a different system with *nearly* the same compiler. That is it works under

%ifort -V
Intel Fortran Intel 64 Compiler Professional for applications running on Intel 64, Version 11.1 Build 20090827 Package ID: l_cprof_p_11.1.056

but fails when compiled (on a different system) with
%ifort -V
Intel Fortran Intel 64 Compiler Professional for applications running on Intel 64, Version 11.1 Build 20091012 Package ID: l_cprof_p_11.1.059

As can be seen, the installed compilers are the same version and slightly different builds.
The two systems are very similar, both are login nodes on large compute clusters. Both are Intel Xeon CPU's on RHEL 64 bit systems.

This can be reproduce even for a simplified compile such as
ifort -module t/Linux.Intel.mpi/m -O0 -c ../hg_hypre_stub.f90
I can provide source as required.

PS We have Intel premier support but I have not been able to post this question there and have not had a response back from intel even after the 48 hr time period.

Have you tried a more recent compiler? What problem are you having with Intel Premier Support? Can you attach the source here?

This is the most recent version we have installed. There are older versions available.

We have premier support but I suspect my login or password has expired. I sent an email using the "contact us" button several days ago but have not received a response yet. Is their a better way to (re) activate the premier support account?

I've attached the source file for you to look at, it's fairly short. To compile it will require the other modules and I will have to tar up the entire source tree. Let me know if you want that.

I'd want to see everything necessary to reproduce the error. The reason you can't log in to Premier Support is that you have no licenses with active support (that I could find, anyway). Your last license expired in 2005. Evidently you are using a license from a different email address if you have 11.1.

If you can attach a tar.gz of everything needed to reproduce the problem (may not be the whole source tree but that would be ok), I'll be glad to try it on a current compiler and let you know if the problem is still there.

I've attached a tgz file. If you go to the fParallel/varden/test directory and run make it should start building. You might also need to point to your local MPI install.

Regarding the license, I know we (the university) have been renewing the license yearly for 10+ years but I will check with our admins. I haven't personally been using the Premier Support so my login may be old.

I was able to build the sources without error using the 12.0 Update 2 compiler.

The login associated with the email address you registered for this forum is the one with the expired support. Check with your admins to see who has registered the more current licenses.
