MGv303betternlops - SMEFTatNLO SLC6 error

Asked by Pim Verschuuren on 2020-10-16

Hi all,
I have been running the development branch MGv3.0.3-betternlops (commit 979) on Centos 7 with the SMEFTatNLO model. These are the commands passed on to mg5_aMC

import model SMEFTatNLO-NLO

generate p p > t t~ QCD=2 QED=0 NP=2 [QCD]

output test_dir

launch

shower=pythia8

set nevents 100

This all works fine on Centos 7. However, when I try to run it on SLC 6.10 I get an error:

aMCatNLOError : CutTools installation in /zfs_home/pverschu/SMEFT/SMEFT_MC/3.0.3-betternlops/vendor/CutTools/includects/libcts.a seems to have been compiled with a different compiler than the one specified in MG5_aMC. Please recompile CutTools.

Let me know what I can do to fix this. Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

Pim Verschuuren

The issue is that you change compiler.

The easiest is to re-install the full directory such that everything will be recompile.
(and such that you have one directory for yourr SLC7 and one for your SLC6 system)

Otherwise, if you do not plan to use your SLC7 system anymore, you
can go to the vendors/Cuttools directory and do make clean
this should do the trick as well.

Cheers,

Olivier
