CutTools source directory issue

Asked by Hesham El Faham

Hi all,
I am trying to run a single top process at NLO in QCD with a developer version of mg5: https://code.launchpad.net/~maddevelopers/mg5amcnlo/3.0.3-neworders. I am running on a remote host and using this python/gcc version: python/python27_sl7_gcc73. This is the error I get:
-->
aMCatNLOError : Could not compile CutTools because its source directory could not be found in the SOURCE folder.
  Check the MG5_aMC option 'output_dependencies.'
<--
Please note that this error is the second in line after a first one asking for CutTools recompilation, I circumvent the latter by a 'make clean' in the CutTools directory following relevant previous Launchpad tickets, this one for example: https://answers.launchpad.net/mg5amcnlo/+question/655250
Here is the debug file:
-->
launch

Hi,
This problem was solved when I used the default Cluster OS, without loading python or gcc modules.

Hi Hesham,
as we chatted over skype, I don't have any big clue about why this happens.
one thing you might try is to re-try to generate and output, see if there is any error/warning about cuttools which is printed on screen, then do a ls inside PROCDIR/lib, where procdir is the output folder.
Normally the files libcts.a and mpmodule.mod should exist (or point to existing files)

Let me know.

Cheers,

marco
