Dear users
I have run a basis parameter for Au in a recently published paper in siesta.
It worked very good.
In my calculation I used 4 atoms in unit cell.
But when I tried to use 8 atoms for 2 unit cell, it made error like this.
What is this problem and how to deal with this?
* Maximum dynamic memory allocated = 132 MB
The leading minor of order 119 of B is not positive definite.
The factorization of B could not be completed
and no eigenvalues or eigenvectors were computed.

basis parameters are

Au 3 split 0.025
n=6 02 E 99.0 3.76

if you use following values, it works.
%block LatticeVectors
4.16 0. 0.
0. 4.16 0.
0. 0. 4.16
%endblock LatticeVectors
%block AtomicCoordinatesAndAtomicSpecies
0. 0. 0. 1
2.08 2.08 0. 1
0. 2.08 2.08 1

Would anyone try to solve this problem?
Thank you,
