Hello Woochun,
Jeremy is on vacation for the next week, so I will answer your question. I would strongly advise you, however, to post future questions to the forum at
http://forum.linearcollider.org. That way they can be seen by a wider array of people who could answer your question in a timely fashion. Also, the topic is then
available to others who might experience a similar situation. You should never change the lcdd file since those changes are only communicated to slic. Any interaction
with the output slcio file later by org.lcsim code will only communicate with the compact.xml file. Also, any changes you make,
no matter how trivial (such as changing the magnetic field value), should cause you to rename the detector. You will then need to provide an alias for this new detector
which points to the location of your new files.
Hope this helps,
Norman

Hi, Jeremy,

I manually replace lcsim.jar and GeomConverter.jar following your
instructions. In some reason, the file size is different. After replacing
them, I can see as you saw. Thanks a bunch.

I appreciate your help and I progress some which brought more
questions. I present my questions at
http://hep.physics.sc.edu/~wpark/lc/question2Jeremy111005.pd f

and please help me to understand it.

Thanks, Woochun
