Hi,

the backtracking macro of the LMD does not work atm and crashes with the following error messages (I cut away the unimportant log parts)

The crash occurs in the BuildPhysics() function call of the TVirtualMC (here of type TGeant3TGeo). The call to BuildPhysics() is made within the FairGeaneApplication::InitMC(). I'm using FairSoft 17.03.

Quote:

void FairGeaneApplication::InitMC(const char*, const char*)
{
// Initialize MC.

TVirtualMC::GetMC()->Init();
TVirtualMC::GetMC()->BuildPhysics();
fMcVersion = 3; //Geane

TVirtualMC::GetMC()->SetMagField(fxField);
}


Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance

Stefan

Hi,

I think this problem is more general. Does anyone use the pandaroot trunk (so with ROOT6) and performs simulations with geant3? I think this does not work either...

Cheers,
Stefan

Dear Stefan,

try to delete the simparam.root file and redo the simulation. We check the operation of the trunk every night with our CDASH system.
There no problem of Geant3 is reported.

Cheers,

Tobias

Hi Tobias,

thx for the info. I tried to delete the simparam.root file but same result. But know I know that Geant3 runs fine with the Pandaroot trunk, and I can check what I have different

Thx
Stefan

Hi again,

so I ran the master simulation macros etc on my machine with the same result.

Then I also checked the CDash and it seems like that it does not work...
https://cdash.gsi.de/viewTest.php?onlyfailed&buildid=165787

From the CDash results it looks like the problem comes from a change in FairRoot. Versions 16 seems to run, but not for version 17. I will investigate a bit further

Cheers,
Stefan

Hi Stefan,

the CDASH you are refering to shows the same problem as you have but yesterday it did not have this problems:

https://cdash.gsi.de/viewTest.php?buildid=165682&onlyfailed

The software has not changed from yesterday to today. Therefore it seems that this problem shows up randomly which is a bit strange.

Cheers,

Tobias

Hi Tobias,

hmm yeah strange indeed... A pity the log is truncated. Thx for the information

Hello,

this problem is fixed by now. Florian and Mohammad inspected this (see https://github.com/FairRootGroup/FairRoot/issues/686).

The issue arises from a conflict of geant3 with the optimizations done by the gcc 6.4.0, which I was using. Turning off the optimizations for the geant3 library fixes this kind of crash.

Cheers,
Stefan
