Known issues with the LUMI software stacks

Issues with 22.12 and 23.03.

  • Some SUSE-provided tools may not work when the ncurses module is loaded.

    This is because SUSE delivers a heavily customised ncurses library and we do not know how they did the customisations. It also contains some versioned symbols info for ancient versions that is not included automatically anymore with more present ncurses libraries, even when asked to include versioned symbols in the shared objects.

    For gdb a workaround is to start it using

    LD_PRELOAD=/lib64/ gdb

    which forces gdb to use the libncursesw from the system and keeps it happy.

Issues with older versions of the LUMI stack

This documentation was not yet developed when those older stacks were build.
