Working on Eve


Members of the Department Environmental Informatics of the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ can use the frontend1- and frontend2-machines from the Eve cluster system.

You need to opt-in to use the [EasyBuild modules](! To do so follow these steps:
  • Login to frontend1 or frontend2
  • Run touch ~/.easybuild-yes
  • exit and re-login

Also on eve the installed git module (2.10) is over 2 years old and we recommend using a newer module:

ml use /global/apps/modulefiles
ml git/2.20.1
