Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy)

As of mid-april 2014, there are 20 corn (corn21-40) and 5 barley (barley1-5) running Ubuntu 13.10 and are accessible via the corn-new.stanford.edu DNS entry.

Please send e-mail to research-computing-support@stanford.edu if you see any problems.


You can check which OS release most easily with the command:

 lsb_release -a

The main DNS entries are: corn, corn-new, corn-old, cardinal, rye

New Features

intel compilers

  • Intel compilers are available. This includes c/c++/fortran/MKL. . These compilers are centrally licensed by Research Computing for the Stanford research community. Please contact us if you would like to incorporate these tools into your workflow.

To try it out you can build the MKL examples on the corn (corn31-40 are instal along with rye01/rye02

$ module load intel
$ cd /tmp
$ mkdir inteltest
$ cd inteltest
$ tar zxf $MKLROOT/examples/examples_core.tgz 
$ cd blas
$ make sointel64


  • Matlab 2013b and Matlab 2014a (module default)
  • Sentarus sde now works on corn (and also on rye)
  • Intel compilers are available on corn (see above)


  • rye01 has been upgraded to 6x C2070 tesla GPU and cuda 6.0
  • rye02 has been upgraded to Cuda 6.0

Known working:

  • MATLAB R2013B and MATLAB R2014a on corn-new (corn21-corn40)
  • FarmVNC

Known not working:

  • module defaults

if you receive a message like this when you login to corn-new:

Restoring modules to user's default

Lmod Warning: The system MODULEPATH has changed: Please rebuild your saved collection.

Restoring modules to system default

The system default contains no modules
  (env var: LMOD_SYSTEM_DEFAULT_MODULES is empty)

then do this:

  • rm .lmod.d/default
  • logout and login again
  • module load all of the modules you use commonly
  • module save to save them as defaults
