  The compilation of the candidate of NWCHEM6.8 on macOS Sierra 10.12.6 with gfortran6.3.0, 
mpich 3.2_2 and Xcode 9.1 installed fails because of the following error
...
ld: library not found for -lSystem

Hello Xiongyan

I have found only 6.6 on http://www.nwchem-sw.org/index.php/Download.
Where do you get 6.8?

Best, Vladimir.


I'm sorry.
Here it is.
http://www.nwchem-sw.org/index.php/Special:AWCforum/st/id2459

Point me to Changelog please.

Could you please run the simple test below to confirm that your gfortran installation is working?

rm  -f gfortrantest.f90 
cat >  gfortrantest.f90  <<EOF
      program main
      end
EOF
gfortran  gfortrantest.f90

Dear Edoapra
The group of commands together gives

ld: library not found for -lSystem
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status,
although actually NWCHEM6.6, DALTON2016.2 and DIRAC16 have been successfully compiled on my MAC and they still can work.

 Very Best Regards!

 Thanks a lot!

I downloaded the 1.04G gz form of NWCHEM6.8 and recompiled it, but still got the same mistake, also at the last stage

My suggestion is to execute the command

brew reinstall gcc

This is likely to fix your NWChem link problem. Se the following URL for details
https://github.com/Homebrew/legacy-homebrew/issues/45011

Dear Edoapra
 Thanks for your answer.
I think I can resort to the patch of GCC for NWCHEM6.6 to overcome this problem,
because the reinstallation of GCC will result in the recompilations of other softwares,
which is not very beneficial when there are not any updates of them.
I will do it later today.
Your suggestion will be followed if it is unsuccessful and there will be no patch to
remedy this when the formal one is released.

 Very Best regards?

The error is the same although the patch Gcc6_macs_optfix.patch for NWCHEM6.6 is applied.

The error is the same when the second release candidate of the 6.8 version of the NWChem suite of computational chemistry codes is compiled on the identical environment.

Sure
We cannot address broken compiler installations.
One ugly hack to fix might be the following

cd $NWCHEM_TOP/src
make BLASOPT="-L/usr/lib" link

Cheers
