TypeError : descriptor 'writelines' requires a 'file' object but received a 'FortranWriter'

Asked by Douglas Tuckler on 2021-06-10

Hello,

I am running maddump using MG version 2.9.3 using the DM_spin1 simplified DM model. I run the following

generate production p p > xd xd~
define darkmatter xd
add process interaction @DIS
output DM_Spin1

During the output stage of running I get the following error:

TypeError : descriptor 'writelines' requires a 'file' object but received a 'FortranWriter'

What does this error mean and how can I fix it? I've attached the MG5_debug below. It seems that the error is associated with madgraph/iolibs/file_writers.py.

Please let me know how to resolve this.
Thank you!
Douglas

Are you using python3? I do not think that maddump is already pythonn3 compatible.
So I would advise to use python2.

Cheers,

Olivier

Hi Olivier,

I am using python 2. I set up a virtual environment with python 2 so that maddump would be able to run.

Hi Olivier,

That fixed that particular issue but now I am having some other issues. I will just mention it here but if I should submit a new question please let me know.

The issue I’m having now is when I want to do a displaced decay. I’m considered the same spin 1 mediator model but now I run the following:

generate production p p > y1
add process displace_decay y1
output

Then I set the various parameters similar to the scalar GeV mediator example in appendix D.2 of https://arxiv.org/pdf/1812.06771.pdf <https://arxiv.org/pdf/1812.06771.pdf>

After I set the parameters and try to run I get the following error:

AttributeError : 'MADDUMPRunCmd' object has no attribute 'proc_characteristics'
Please report this bug to developers

Here is the content of the debug file:

Please open a new bug report for that.
This one is on the maddump side and therefore I can not handle it (and looks like that the code shipped with madgraph is not in sync with the version on launchpad so i will not try to fix stuff).

In principle this fix is enough to fix that issue:
