stuck combining events

Asked by Rocío on 2015-07-09

Hello,

I am just starting out and I'm having problems in my runs over 10 000 events. After launch, it gets stuck on combining events, with no explanation or error message at all.

It got through to the end in the one I left running yesterday evening but today it's been stuck for almost two hours.

This is what I've got on my shell, but I don't know if it will be of much use because there is no error message:

I forgot to say, about the contents in my output folder:

The file RunWeb is there, which I have to erase in case I want to launch something again.

Also, there is no run folder in Events, just Events/events.lhe, so no unweighted_events either.

Finally, index.html and crossx.html do give me the diagrams and the cross sections, although I get the "Currently Running" table above the "Available Data" one and the "Events" and "Data" columns are empty.

Thanks again,
R.
