@jeffhammond is there a way I can give you access to my $SCRATCH so that you can have a look at the files?

I think the whole problem is compatibility with cmake versions. I've found a workaround (which might be a terrible way of doing it) that involves first using cmake 3.7.2 and when that fails, resuming with cmake 3.0.0. And this manages to finish, and compile. I still haven't run my code to see if there're any issues in the compiled library.

The only issue now is that even though I gave Cmake a local value (-D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$SCRATCH/elemental), at the end of make install I get this error:

CMake Error at cmake_install.cmake:86 (file):
file cannot create directory: /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/El. Maybe

I think this is because of something I had encountered before,,,,, my guess is that I need:
-D PYTHON_SITE_PACKAGES=$SCRATCH/elemental

while configuring

trying it now

yes. That's what it was
so I've compiled and installed successfully. I'll compile my code now and see if it runs properly
