Dear Glen,
the disk space in canonical MP2-F12 larger than for MP2, since all the
integrals involving F12 have to be stored. It grows approximately as
No^2 Nv^2, where No and Nv are the numbers of occupied and virtual  

The DIRECT option is actually not implemented for F12 methods, so I  
how it could work for you. I'll make a patch to exit with an error  
if direct is attempted. You should use df-mp2-f12 instead.

If the problem "Numerical result out of range" occurs with mp2-f12 or  
and direct is not set, please first check your output if there is any  
message. If not, or if it does not help, please send the output  
showing the
