Compiling mod files

Post by vreddy20 »

Hi,
I was having problems compiling mod files while attempting to run a netpyne model. Link to netpyne model: https://github.com/btessler92/netpyneca3. Most of the mod files compile but one of them doesnt (misc.mod). Running "nrnivmodl" in terminal results in the following errors:

gcc -O2 -I".." -I. -I/Users/vineetreddy/opt/anaconda3/lib/python3.8/site-packages/neuron/.data/include -I/usr/local/Cellar/open-mpi/4.0.5/include -fPIC -c nafolmkop.c -o nafolmkop.o

printf("Did %ld: %x\n",x,pmlc);
~~ ^~~~

1 warning and 6 errors generated.
make: *** [misc.o] Error 1

I was wondering if anyone knows a solution to this problem. I am using macOS Catalina.
Thank you

misc.mod defines a bunch of "utility functions" that may or may not be relevant to the proper operation of the model. Ask the model's developers and Salvador Dura about how to deal with this. When you find out what works, please let us know.
