I am using a 64-bit AMD apteron cluster with 8 GB RAM (RHEL platform). I face "relocation overflow" and "relocation truncated to fit errors" when I compile big fortran 77 codes using f77/g77 (even with ifort and pathf95) on it. Though it compiles successfully it cannot assemble or link the executables. I understand this is because of large arrays or so. But the executable size is not more than 2GB. so I could not run my codes with large dimensions.
Can you please tell me what options I can use while compiling thse kind of codes. Sometimes, ulimit command or -m32 option worked but when I run the executable it simply dumps the core. Please suggest me what can I do to get rid of these problems?.
Thanks in advance. H.S.Nataraj -- ==================================== H.S.Nataraj, Senior Research Fellow, Indian Institute of Astrophysics, II Block, Koramangala, Bangalore, India - 560034
