I want to run the ‘sim_challenge.sh’ located in ~/alice/O2/prodtests/ but there seem to be critical errors in the digitization step. The event generation etc. works fine and I have this same issue on two different computers both running a fresh install of O2 on Ubuntu 20.04.5 LTS.
I uploaded console output and the ‘digi.log’ containing the errors to CernBox:
What can be done to fix this problem? I want to be able to generate AOD files but the script fails at the digitization step. I have also noticed that the ‘full_system_check.sh’ fails because AEGIS_ROOT is not set and even if it set it, it will fail because I have not put my grid certficate. So my second question is : When I just want to run sim & reconstruction locally on my machine using the sim_challenge.sh script, is a grid certificate required?
Thanks for your time and help!
