symbol lookup error from ./Pythia8.exe

Asked by Khawla Jaffel on 2021-01-19

Hello experts,

I am running mg@NLO v2.7.3 with matching and FXFX jet merging (ickkw =3 ), showering with pythia8

Everything running okay until this stage :

closer look to the log file :

and the mcatnlo_run.log in RUN_PYTHIA8_6 giving me this error :

./Pythia8.exe: symbol lookup error: /nfs/user/kjaffel/MG5_aMC_v2_7_3/HEPTools/pythia8//lib/libpythia8lhapdf6.so: undefined symbol: _ZN6LHAPDF8findFileERKNSt7__cxx1112basic_stringIcSt11char_traitsIcESaIcEEE

Any idea ??
Many thanks in advance ,

Hi,

It seems an issue of some dynamical library linking of pythia8 which are not correctly setup.
Did you change your version of gcc or something similar during/after some of the compilation?

Cheers,

Olivier

PS: Since this is a C++ issue and that language is not our expertise... might be better to ask your local IT expert.

Hi,

Indeed, what happened is that i changed the lhapdf after installing pythia8 with an old version !

ldd /HEPTools/pythia8//lib/libpythia8lhapdf6.so
show me which version of lhapdf pythia8 actually calling.

i reinstall pythia8 again with the new version and that solve my problem.

Thanks Olivier,
