installing ninja

Asked by Amin Aboubrahim on 2018-03-05

Hi MG5 team,

I am generating ttbar samples at NLO, (adding [QCD]) and in the process, MG5 wants to install ninja. I am getting this:

You are installing 'ninja', please cite ref(s): arXiv:1203.0291, arXiv:1403.1229, arXiv:1604.01363.

InvalidCmd : Installation of ninja failed.

It seems that the tarball was downloaded but I'm not sure why it says "Could not download". I tried several times so I don't think it is a network issue. Any idea what's happening?

Thank you,

Hi Valentin,

I tried installing ninja from MG5 prompt by typing "install ninja" but still it fails.
Any suggestions?

Thank you,
