Asked by Ena Zunic on 2017-08-03

Everything is fine until I have to lunch the process in which I put [QCD] in the end. How to fix this error which appeared when I want to lunch the process: Error detected in "launch auto "

Hi,

You need to go to the vendor/Cuttools directory and do make clean.
This will force the code to recompile that code and that will ensure that you are using the same compiler

Cheers,

Olivier

Hi Olivier,

Thank you, but, unfortunately, this just helped me to go to the next step, Next error was: aMCatNLOError : Could not compile CutTools because its source directory could not be found in the SOURCE folder.
  Check the MG5_aMC option 'output_dependencies.'

When I again generated the processes, but with the 'output_dependencies' I had the problem with installing ninja:
Command "output dependencies thw" interrupted with error:
InvalidCmd : Installation of ninja failed.

Can you recommend to install something else which is similar to 'ninja'? I tried to not install ninja, but this was the error:

Command "launch auto " interrupted with error:
IOError : [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/afs/cern.ch/work/e/ezunic/MG5_aMC_v2_5_2/thw/SubProcesses/P0_gb_wmht/test_ME.log'
Please report this bug on https://bugs.launchpad.net/mg5amcnlo
More information is found in '/afs/cern.ch/work/e/ezunic/MG5_aMC_v2_5_2/thw/run_06_tag_1_debug.log'.
Please attach this file to your report.

The programs which were offered after output dependencies:
Which one do you want to install? (this needs to be done only once)
1. cuttools (OPP) [0711.3596] : will be installed (required)
2. iregi (TIR) [1405.0301] : will be installed (required)
3. ninja (OPP) [1403.1229] : will be installed (recommended)
4. collier (TIR) [1604.06792] : /afs/cern.ch/work/e/ezunic/MG5_aMC_v2_5_2/HEPTools/collier
5. golem (TIR) [0807.0605] : do not install
6. pjfry (TIR) [1112.0500] : do not install
You can:
 -> hit 'enter' to proceed
 -> type a number to cycle its options
 -> enter the following command:
    {tool_name} [install|noinstall|{prefixed_installation_path}]

Dear Ena,

Which setup did you choose for output_dependencies?
(This is actually written in the debug file).

You do not need ninja for the code to work. You only need Cuttools and iregi.
Adding ninja and collier allows the code to be slightly faster (especially for complicated processes) but those are not required.

Now from the few information that you give me, it looks like that you are trying to do a process in 5 flavour with w in final state.
This is not supported since it has some (top) resonant diagram in the real contribution that we can not remove in an appropriate way.
So this might be one reason why your done fails after the installation of the loop reduction tools.

Cheers,

Olivier
