Hi Joachim,

We also have (a slightly customised) HMNS. For our users we hide the icc and 
ifort modules and only expose them to iccifort (which we rename to Intel using 
a custom naming scheme). This is one way to get around your issue.

However, I don't understand how you can run into this problem. Normally for any 
package the toolchain components are included as dependencies in the final 
module: loading Caffe would also mean loading the missing ifort module. I guess 
you must have a configuration that does not include the toolchain deps in the 
final module? Removing this option would also solve the problem (but you 
probably decided on that setting for a reason).

There is a longstanding issue on our site regarding the intel fortran runtime

ever discussed here.

We are using hierarchical modules in production.  If a package is build with an 
intel toolchain, you can load it by either loading the

  icc, impi


 ifort, impi

component of that toolchain.  If a package (e.g. 
Caffe-1.0-intel-2017a-Python-2.7.13.eb) requires the Fortran runtime but it is 
loaded via the icc route, you get runtime errors because of the missing 

A possible fix could be to load either of the ifort or intel modules inside the 
package (e.g. Caffe) module.  I assume that would need to be done in the 
easy-block or further down inside the easybuild framework.

Any comments or insights?  Apologies if that was discussed before.
