Dear Oliver,
     I want to use MG5_aMC for calculations of some hadronic processes.But the terminal always output error.
     Here is what I get

I would need the debug file in order to comment.
Note that if this is an issue with MadAnalysis5 then I would need to reassign this bug to that team.
(But I have some doubt that this is MA5 related)

Cheers,

Olivier
