Hi


I tried to follow up on the issues I had with energy not conserved when using the default physics lists (lcphys). It was suggested to try
QGSP_BERTINI
So with the slic version created from source using SimDist I added the following line to the mac file.

/physics/select QGSP_BERT

This resulted in:

Photon-evaporation data are needed.
Please set the environmental variable G4LEVELGAMMADATA
to point to your PhotonEvaporation directory.
Data are available from the Geant4 download page.

Once I had downloaded the data file from the geant 4 web site and set the variable G4LEVELGAMMADATA things work ok (haven't looked at the energy yet Smile )

Wouldn't it make sense to install the data files and set the necessary variables in the installation process? It's kind of annoying to select an option and your process bombs

I am packaging all required data files with slic now. You can get the binaries in the usual place (lcsim.org/dist/slic). The environment is setup by the slic.sh run script, so if you want to write your own script, you can base it on that.
