The best way to set up your unique Cheyenne user environment

May 1, 2018

The recommended way to set up your Cheyenne user environment–or in some cases, environments–is to load the desired modules after logging in or to create customized environments as described here.

Some users recently reported problems that resulted from loading environment modules with their personalized start files (.bashrc, .cshrc, .kshrc, .tcshrc, .login, .profile, and so on) instead of the recommended procedures.

As advised in our Personalizing start files documentation, Cheyenne users should not set environment modules in their start files by using commands such as:

  • module load nco

  • module load netcdf
