Madgraph-Pythia interface

Asked by Sebastian Urrutia-Quiroga on 2020-03-11

Hello everyone,

I'm installing the latest version of Madgraph in my institution's cluster and apparently there was no error. However, testing the chain MG5-Pythia8-Delphes for a simple process (to check everything is working), I got the following message:

Command "generate_events run_01" interrupted with error:
error : can't start new thread
Please report this bug on https://bugs.launchpad.net/mg5amcnlo
More information is found in '/home/su64a/MG5/TestCluster/run_01_tag_1_debug.log'.
Please attach this file to your report.

I've checked the mentioned file but there is no mention to the source of the error.

Any idea would be really appreciated, thanks!
Sebastian

Hi,

This typically happens when you do a scan or similar stuff.
It might also be an issue on some machine with very strict limit on the number of thread (in that case contact your sys-admin in order to use the cluster rather than a single machine)

Cheers,

Hi Olivier,

Thank you for your prompt response. I was able to fix that with my sys-admin but now I'm getting the following error message:

Error detected in sub-command generate_events

Any thoughts?

Thanks again,

HI,

This is the type of error message which happens when you mix two compiler.
My suggestion is to go to the Source directory:
 /home/su64a/MG5/TestCluster/Source
and run the command
make clean
make

then I guess it should work.

Cheers,

Olivier

Thanks Olivier Mattelaer, that solved my question.
