Quick Start Guide for USER-MESO

If you have any question/problem regarding the setup process, feel free to contact Yu-Hang.


You can either download the source code as a tar ball or (preferably) use subversion:

Tar ball:

wget http://www.cfm.brown.edu/repo/release/USER-MESO.tgz
tar xzf USER-MESO.tgz


svn co http://www.cfm.brown.edu/repo/release/USER-MESO/ USER-MESO



  • A MPI compiler, e.g. OpenMPI or MPICH.
  • CUDA Toolkit


Short version:

$ make clean-all     # delete temporary files if any was left from last compilation
$ make yes-molecule  # dependency
$ make yes-user-meso # configure the USER-MESO package
$ make meso

Long Version:

First, make sure that mpic++ and nvcc are available by

$ which mpic++
$ which nvcc

You should be expecting output that looks like

$ which mpic++
$ which nvcc

If you are sure that MPI and CUDA are present, but still get messages like

/usr/bin/which: no mpic++ in (/usr/local/bin:/bin:/usr/bin)

Then adjust Makefile.meso located in USER-MESO/MAKE by setting the CC and MPICXX environment variables to be the absolute path to nvcc and mpic++, respectively.
