symfact.dat FileNotFoundError

Asked by Sihyun Jeon on 2021-02-13

Hi Olivier,

I am suddenly facing this error with MG5v2.8.2:
FileNotFoundError : [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/Users/shjeon/Work/Generator/MadGraph/MG5_aMC_v2_8_2/PROC_sm_1/SubProcesses/P1_qq_z/symfact.dat'

With simple p p > z, z > e+ e- process. I recently updated my MAC and Catalina 10.15.7 and I am suspecting this might be the reason why...

I tried recommendation in [1], and the last command you provided :
  > lldb ./gensym
then type “run”

this gives me :

Process 12632 launched: '/Users/shjeon/Work/Generator/MadGraph/MG5_aMC_v2_8_2/PROC_sm_0/SubProcesses/P1_qq_ll/gensym' (x86_64)

Is there any possible way I can solve this?

Looks like your instalation of gfortran is corrupted.
I would advise to un-install gcc (if install) and gfotran.
Then re-install gfortran (only gfortran) from
http://hpc.sourceforge.net/ <http://hpc.sourceforge.net/>

Cheers,

Olivier
