Herwig Shower: Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Asked by Sreedevi Varma on 2019-07-17

Hi,

I was trying to shower some events using Herwig7 which I installed separately. I am getting a .hepmc.gz file after the showering which is mostly empty even though I am generating 50000 events. The mcatnlo_run.log says,

event> init
event> 0 50000
./MCATNLO_HERWIGPP_EXE: line 3: 6664 Segmentation fault (core dumped) ./Herwig run -N 50000 MCATNLO_HERWIGPP.run

and MCATNLO_HERWIGPP_EXE is,

#!/bin/bash
./Herwig read MCATNLO_HERWIGPP_input
./Herwig run -N 50000 MCATNLO_HERWIGPP.run

It would be great if you can help me with this.

Thanks and regards
Sreedevi

Hi,

If I understand correctly the error, this is a segmentation fault within Herwig executables.
So you should contact HW author for help on this.

Sorry,

Olivier
