Issues compiling Rosetta on stampede2

Hi everyone,

I am trying to compile rosetta3.13 on stampede2 using the SCons assistant as described in the documentation. 

I am using the command: 

./ -j1 bin mode=release bin extras=mpi

which has repeatedly given the error

scons: Reading SConscript files ...
pDir_Info[idx_Rec].nEntries > MAX_NUM_ENTRY_DIR
You need to increase MAX_NUM_ENTRY_DIR

How do I go about increasing MAX_NUM_ENTRY_DIR? What do you all think may have gone wrong here?

I don't think that message is coming from Rosetta or Scons. You may need to contact the stampede2 sysadmins to see if they know what local setting might be affecting that message.

It may be a local disk setting which limits the number of files which can be put into a single directory. Rosetta is a bit on the large side, so it could well be that we're creating more files that the sysadmins set up the cluster's disks to allow. Unfortunately, if that's the case I don't know if there's a good fix on the Rosetta side of things. If you can confirm with the stampede2 sysadmins that that's what the message means, then my only suggestion would be to try to compile on some other machine and then copy over the relevant bits.

(It might also be worth talking to the sysadmins to see if they already have a precompiled verison of Rosetta installed. I know that the TACC admins provided one for the previous stampede cluster, though I don't know what the situation is for stampede2.)
