Cuttools not compiling in NLO output process

Asked by daniela romero on 2020-11-02

Hello,

I am running a simple test for a QCD process,

generate p p > w+ [QCD]
output qcdtest

Madgraph then asks to install tools to perform the reduction of loop Feynman diagrams

When it tries to install cuttools, madgraph gives this error:

INFO: Compiling CutTools. This has to be done only once and can take a couple of minutes.
Error detected in "output qcdtest"

Hi,

Which version of gcc are you using for the compilation?

This thread is very similar:
https://answers.launchpad.net/mg5amcnlo/+question/250594
and seems to indicate issue with the installation of gcc (not fully consistent setup)
So please double check that.

Otherwise, in that link you also have instruction to recompile the code which should help.

Cheers,

Olivier

Thank you Olivier,

I am using:
gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-39)

g++ --version
g++ (GCC) 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-39)

gfortran --version
GNU Fortran (GCC) 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-39)

Also from the thread, I do not have the exact mpmodule.mod file, I have

MG5_aMC_v2_8_1/vendor/CutTools/includects/mpfuna.mod
mpfunc.mod
mpfune.mod
mpfung.mod
mpfuni.mod
mpfunmod.mod
mpfunb.mod
mpfund.mod
mpfunf.mod
mpfunh.mod
mpfunj.mod

Could this be the problem?

Cheers,
Daniela
