Error when compiling with -ta=nvidia and -Mcuda


I have a code with acc directives wich is currently compiling and working with -ta=nividia option.

I wanted to add in this code some Cuda Fortran kernels. However when I try to compile with option “-ta=nvidia -Mcuda” I then get the following error:

PGF90-F-0701-Error reading temp file - dtype (/users/lapixa/GPU/turb_standalone_1a/src/turb_standalone.f90)

This seems really related with -Mcuda option, as even if I remove all calls to my cuda fortran kernel and the Use Cudafor statment, but compile with -Mcuda I am getting this error.

I have unfortunatelly not been able to reproduce the problem in a smaller test case, and other codes which mix CudaFortran and acc directives are working well. Do you have any idea of what could be causing this issue ?



PGi version: 11.8

Hi Xavier,

Could you try compiling your code with -v and posting the output here? We will need a little more info to see what is going on.



Here is the output with -v

Hi Xavier,

Can you please send an example code that reproduces the error to PGI Customer Service ( We have not seen this error before so will need the source to determine what the problem is.


Hi Mat,

I was away for some days. I have just sent an example to
