Building O2 fails on local machine

Hello everyone,

I’m currently trying to build the O2 software on my local mashine (Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS) but it seems to have some issues when trying to build the GEANT4 package.

Before I’ve started the build I made sure that the local versions of alidist and O2 software are up to date using git pull --rebase in the respective repositories.
For building O2 I used aliBuild build O2 --defaults o2 .

The Error message I recieve is:
2021-03-09@16:20:26:DEBUG:O2:GEANT4:0: make[2]: *** [CMakeFiles/G4EMLOW.dir/build.make:110: Externals/G4EMLOW-7.13/src/G4EMLOW-stamp/G4EMLOW-download] Error 1 2021-03-09@16:20:26:DEBUG:O2:GEANT4:0: make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:2968: CMakeFiles/G4EMLOW.dir/all] Error 2 2021-03-09@16:20:26:DEBUG:O2:GEANT4:0: make: *** [Makefile:171: all] Error 2 2021-03-09@16:20:26:ERROR:O2:GEANT4:0: Error while executing /home/florian-admin/alice/sw/SPECS/ubuntu2004_x86-64/GEANT4/v10.7.1-1/ on 'Florians-PC-Ubuntu'. 2021-03-09@16:20:26:ERROR:O2:GEANT4:0: Log can be found in /home/florian-admin/alice/sw/BUILD/GEANT4-latest/log 2021-03-09@16:20:26:ERROR:O2:GEANT4:0: Please upload it to CERNBox/Dropbox if you intend to request support. 2021-03-09@16:20:26:ERROR:O2:GEANT4:0: Build directory is /home/florian-admin/alice/sw/BUILD/GEANT4-latest/GEANT4.

The corresponding log file is attached.
In there I find lines like this:
make[2]: *** [CMakeFiles/PhotonEvaporation.dir/build.make:110: Externals/PhotonEvaporation-5.7/src/PhotonEvaporation-stamp/PhotonEvaporation-download] Error 1 make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:3049: CMakeFiles/PhotonEvaporation.dir/all] Error 2
which seems like a download Error?

Any help would be appreciated.

this looks like either a transient problem with the Geant4 server, or a problem with your proxy (if you have any). Coul you try again?

Thanks Giulio for your reply.

I don’t use any proxy.
After updating the repositories and trying to rebuild, the error remains when building the GEANT4 package.

But it seems that it shifted to a different download error, see below:

make[2]: *** [CMakeFiles/G4PARTICLEXS.dir/build.make:110: Externals/G4PARTICLEXS-3.1.1/src/G4PARTICLEXS-stamp/G4PARTICLEXS-download] Error 1 make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:3184: CMakeFiles/G4PARTICLEXS.dir/all] Error 2

Can you traceroute to the GEANT4 webserver?

I’m sorry, but I’m not familiar with using traceroute.
What would be the correct Hostname for the GEANT4 webserver?
Is it
