Madgraph Error detected in "generate_events run_01"

Asked by Camila Paris on 2021-02-04

I can't generate events. What can I do? This is what I get when trying to launch:
Error detected in "generate_events run_01"
write debug file /Users/mariacamilaparis/Desktop/MADGRAPH/MG5_aMC_v2_9_1_2/bin/Zprime_tau_tau_M_350p0_gl_1_gh_1_kv_0p0/run_01_tag_1_debug.log

Which model/ process are you trying to generate ?
Is it possible that you are not using a UFO model?

Cheers,

Olivier

Camila Paris (camilaparis1004) said : #2

The UFO model is ok, everything runs fine in another computer. I tried with Madgraph 2.8.3 instead of 2.9.1.2 and I got this:

Command "generate_events ojpeg" interrupted with error:
OSError : [Errno 13] Permission denied
Please report this bug on https://bugs.launchpad.net/mg5amcnlo
More information is found in '/Users/mariacamilaparis/Desktop/MG5_aMC_v2_8_3/bin/Zprime_tau_tau_M_350p0_gl_1_gh_1_kv_0p0/ojpeg_Zprime_tau_tau_M_350p0_gl_1_gh_1_kv_0p0_debug.log'.
Please attach this file to your report.

Permission denied is an issue that you do not have enough disk space (or that you have created too many files, or ...)
This is typically not something that we can fix on our side, but something that you can handle yourself (if running on a cluster, then you might need to check the cluster documentation for where you can write file/...

The question about the model/ process is mainly such that i can try to run the same generation and see if I also have the same compilation error.

Cheers,

Olivier

Camila Paris (camilaparis1004) said : #4

Hi,

I already managed to run it on a cluster and got this:

Command "generate_events ojpeg" interrupted with error:

Here my advise would be to upgrade to the latest version of the code.
This seems to be an issue with the writting of the run_card.dat which seems unlikely to be un-noticed for two years and a half.

# 0. REFRAIN from editing this file by hand! Some of the parame- *

# problems might be encountered (such as violation of unitarity *
# or gauge invariance). Always use a calculator. *
# *
# 1. alpha_S(MZ) has been used in the calculation of the parameters *
# but, for consistency, it will be reset by madgraph to the *
# value expected IF the pdfs for collisions with hadrons are *
# used. This value is KEPT by madgraph when no pdf are used *
# lpp(i)=0 . *
# *
# 2. Values of the charm and bottom kinematic (pole) masses are *
# those used in the matrix elements and phase space UNLESS they *
# are set to ZERO from the start in the model (particles.dat) *
# This happens, for example, when using 5-flavor QCD where *
# charm and bottom are treated as partons in the initial state *
# and a zero mass might be hardwired in the model definition. *
