Dear NWChem users and developers,
I'm trying to apply the double-hybrid functional B2PLYP together with the quadratic convergence algorithm, and after the successful SCF algorithm for the DFT part, I'm getting the following error message:

 mp2:scftype absent        1
 An error occured in the Runtime Database

Below please find a minimal example for the water molecule.

Is there a problem with my input or is this feature not implemented yet?

Thanks a lot,

The cgmin part of the DFT code is not compatible with the dftmp2 method yet.

Hi Vincent,
I looked into this and the problem was mainly a bit of plumbing passing the right information around. So I have just fixed this and checked it into the development version. I have uploaded a patch for this problem.

These are the steps needed to apply the patch
2) wget http://www.nwchem-sw.org/images/Cgmin-DoubleHybrid.patch.gz
3) gzip -d Cgmin-DoubleHybrid.patch.gz
4) patch -p0 < Cgmin-DoubleHybrid.patch
5) recompile

Best wishes, Huub
