lhapdf is not working while nn23lo1 is working

Asked by muhammad gul on 2017-08-29

Dear Experts,

I am using MG5_aMC_v2.5.5 with LHAPDF-6.2.0. The pdf installed and the path in the mg5_configuration.txt is set as;

lhapdf = /afs/cern.ch/work/m/mgul/public/generators/madgraph/CMSSW_8_0_26_patch1/src/bin/lhapdf-config

With default configuration everything is fine but changing pdlabel from nn23lo1 to lhapdf in the run card, it gives the error [1].
Can you please point me where I am making mistake?

Cheers,
Muhammad

Hi,

Indeed lhapdf 6.2.0 is not compatible with MG5aMC 2.5.5
We tried to include such support in 2.6.0, but I can not guarantee that it is working so far.
If you can test, it would be great.
Otherwise, lhapdf 6.1.6 is working with MG5aMC 2.5.5

Cheers,

Olivier
