I am using the following DIRC initialization:

  PndDrc *Drc = new PndDrc("DIRC", kTRUE);
  Drc->SetGeometryFileName("dirc_l0_p0.root");
  Drc->SetRunCherenkov(kFALSE); // for fast sim Cherenkov -> kFALSE
  fRun->AddModule(Drc);


It seems to work with Geant3, but with geant4 I have the following crash:

Info in <TG4RootNavMgr::Initialize>: Creating G4 hierarchy ...
Info in <TGeoManager::ConvertReflections>: Converting reflections in: FAIRGeom - FAIR geometry ...
Info in <TGeoManager::ConvertReflections>: Done
===> GEANT4 materials created and mapped to TGeo ones...
Cannot make material for volume: BarrelDIRC
Aborting in CreateLogicalVolume()

*** G4Exception: Aborting execution ***


A fix is required, I suppose.

This bug should be already fixed.
Try to update the geometry directory or just the dirc_l0_p0.root file.

I have just tried with the latest trunk but it crashes again.

to run the simulation correctly please make the following changes in the gconfig/g4Config.C file:

instead of

TG4RunConfiguration* runConfiguration = new TG4RunConfiguration("geomRoot", "QGSP_BERT_EMV+optical", "stepLimiter+specialCuts+specialControls");

use

TG4RunConfiguration* runConfiguration = new TG4RunConfiguration("geomRootToGeant4", "QGSP_BERT_EMV+optical", "stepLimiter+specialCuts+specialControls");

Hope this helps
