MA5 Installation

Asked by SAUMYEN KUNDU on 2018-07-17

Since my MA5 wasn't being able to generate the pdf files I tried reinstalling overwriting the existing directory. But while installing I got this error message:

MA5: => Status: [OK]
MA5: **********************************************************
MA5: Component 8/11 - library: interface to Root
MA5: - Cleaning the project before building the library ...

MA5-ERROR: The library building aborted.

When I tried to see that very log file, 'compilation_root.log', there was no such file there. The following is the contents of the directory that file should have been:

saumyen@saumyen-inspiron-3543:~/HEP_Package/MG5_aMC_v2_6_1/HEPTools/madanalysis5/madanalysis5/tools/SampleAnalyzer/Interfaces$ ls
cleanup_fastjet.log delphes linking_zlib.log root
cleanup_zlib.log delphesMA5tune Makefile_fastjet zlib
compilation_fastjet.log fastjet Makefile_test
compilation_zlib.log linking_fastjet.log Makefile_zlib

I can't find the reason. Please help.

Regards,

Saumyen Kundu

Hi,

Can you try instead to re-install madanalysis from the MadGraph CLI? If you want to install it as a standalone package, please don't do it by overwriting an existing installation from MadGraph. I guess there is some conflict with some environment variables here.

Please let me know.

Regards,

Benjamin

Hi, Benjamin,

I tried that also. Again I tried that. Here's the error message:

Default installation of Madanalys5 failed.
MG5aMC will now attempt to reinstall it with the options '--no_MA5_further_install --no_root_in_MA5'.
This will however limit MA5 applicability for hadron-level analysis.
If you would like to prevent MG5aMC to re-attempt MA5 installation, start MG5aMC with './bin/mg5_aMC --debug'.

I have installed mg5_amc verzion 2.6.1 and I cannot reproduce your bug. As I suggested, let's first try to install madanalysis5 as a standalone package, externally to MG5_aMC. Please let me know whether this works.

Cheers,

Benjamin
