Hello NWChem community!

I have been trying to run the following copper calculation, however I keep running into the "error creating gga" error message. Here is my input file:

geometry noautosym noautoz

This calculation took a lot of time, so my first inclination was to increase the memory (hence the large amount specified), but to no avail. I noticed my output file contains just over 1100 lines dedicated to interatomic angles, which I thought was odd since a similar calculation with the same number of silicon atoms only contained ~120.

Any thoughts?
