For a particle physics project (micrOMEGAs), I have had to unpack a .tgz, and then run "make" in it (following this tutorial https://lapth.cnrs.fr/micromegas/).
I first unpacked using:
tar -zxvf micromegas_4.3.4.tgz
Then I obtained a folder
micromegas_4.3.4, in which I ran
cd micromegas_4.3_4 make
At the end of the process, the terminal is available for next instructions, but in its last message mentions:
'../lib/micromegas.a' seems to have been created in deterministic mode. 'limits.o' will always be updated. Please consider passing the U flag to ar to avoid the problem.
How do I fix this (supposedly using non-deterministic mode?)?
There are next steps to this installation process, but for the moment I just wanted to make sure that my folder
micromegas_4.3.4 has been accurately compiled using
make, and if not, what other packages/auxiliary files would I need to add to my Ubuntu platform.
Fundamentally, I am just compiling the contents of an unpacked folder. Then this is supposed to be ready to use using the command line (no GUI involved), for physical calculations.
(This is Ubuntu 17.04 running on a VirtualBox in Windows 10 by the way.)
