[Compiler Internal Error] /intel12.1.2/bin/intel64/fortcom, terminated by 0x2


I am trying to compile an high performance code (GENE) on a crayXE6 cluster (http://user.cscs.ch/compilers/rosa_cray_xe6/intel_compiler/index.html). During the compilation process, I have an error which may be due to the compiler not understanding the code. I give some details below and the concerned file is attached. I anybody has a clue, I'll be gratefull.

Thanks for your help,

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Few people reading this forum would have access to a Cray. An ICE (Internal Compiler Error) is always a compiler error, and should be reported to the compiler vendor. It would be more reasonable in this forum to request help with compiling your source code (provided it is a smallish example) on a commodity Linux system.

In this case, it is just the Intel Fortran Compiler being used here. Cray uses the Intel compiler on its Intel-compatible systems (older ones use AMD processors, the newest model uses Intel Xeon processors.) It's fine to report such issues here, though if you've got a Cray you also have Cray's excellent tech support (I say this as Bill Long from Cray is sitting next to me while we're at the Fortran standards meeting). Cray support will test your program and if needed will work with us to get the bug fixed.

I don't see that the source file was attached. Please attach it and make sure it is not dependent on any files not provided by Intel Fortran. I would also suggest you try it with a newer compiler if you can, as 12.1.2 is somewhat old.

Since only the Cray driver invocation was shown ("ftn..."), and I do not know what options the driver passes to "fortcom", I suggested turning to Cray support. I suppose one could have found out by reading the Cray documentation, though.


Thanks for the fast replies. I have a small experience in compiling on high cluster and as I am using the intel compiler, I had the reflexe to contact you as I usually found very good technical advices on this forum which help me. Anyway I just contacted the cscs support. I'll keep you updated.
