Nightly builds for Gauss

The different release candidates of Gauss and related projects or packages are built in the various slots of the nightlies.

Running from the nighlies

Instructions on how to run from the nightlies are available from the general nightlies documentation. Just replace DaVinci with Gauss and select the slot you want to use from the list above.

Checking the status of the nightlies

The current status of the LHCb nightly builds is available at http://cern.ch/lhcb-nightlies/cgi-bin/nightlies.py. For more details refer to the corresponding section in the nightlies documentation.

Explanation of what is in the nightly slots

An explanation of what is in each slot for Gauss, Geant4 and DecFiles is given here

lhcb-branches: for tests of future release of DecFiles for MC11

This slot is to build and test future release of DecFiles for MC for 2011 data - Sim05, a.k.a as MC11. In this slot you will find the build of the latest released version of Gauss in the v41 series, v41r4. It uses a build in the same nighlty slot of the head revision of DecFiles. All new decay files added since the latest release in the DecFiles v25rX series are built and a qmtest is run to verify they can be used.

The following data/configuration packages are explicitely added to the Gauss nightly build to allow the pick them up in the tests:

  • DecFiles HEAD
  • AppConfig HEAD

lhcb-branches2: for tests of releases with only LHCb changes, v42 series

Currently this slot is to test the next reference release for 2012, Gauss v42r4 build against LHCb v35r4 and Geant4 v94r2p5 with the latest DecFiles v26rX. It has Gauss v42r3 and all new packages expected to be in the next version of the v42 series.

This version of Gauss has new generators and new features for the upgrade. However, it is based on the same default generators (pythia6 and evtgen versions) and Geant4 version as Gauss v41rX (Sim05). For this reason it can also be used for early productions for 2012 data, identified as Sim06.

It uses a build in the same nighlty slot of the latest revision of the v26b branch of DecFiles to allow to test the latest decay files added since the latest release in the DecFiles v26rX series.

The following data/configuration packages are explicitly added to the Gauss v42r3 nightly build to allow the pick them up in the tests:

  • Sim/Gauss v42b
  • Gen/Generators v12b
  • Gen/LbPythia8 HEAD
  • Gen/Mint HEAD
  • Gen/EvtGenExtras HEAD
  • Sim/GiGaCnv HEAD
  • Sim/GaussTools HEAD
  • DecFiles v26b
  • AppConfig HEAD

lhcb-prerelease: for tests of the next release of Gauss with new Geant4 and generators versions against the latest release of LHCb, v43 series

This slot is to prepare the version of Gauss v43r4 that uses the latest version of Geant4 9.5.p01 and of generators (but for EvtGen).

In this slot there is also Geant4 HEAD, picking up 9.5.p01 to pick new LHCb additions for G4 and Gauss uses it. To decouple from the newer EvtGen, that is kept as in the Gauss v42 (Sim06) series.

Since the latest versions of the external generators are also available on gcc 4.6 this allow to begin commissioning Gauss with this compiler.

The following versions of external generators have been changed with respect to the v42 series:

Generator Version in Gauss v42 Version in lhcb-prerelease
pythia6 425.2 427.2 it was 426.2 in v43r3
lhapdf 5.8.5 5.8.8
herwig++ 2.5.1 2.6.1a
thepeg 1.7.1 1.8.1
rivet 1.8.0.b 1.8.1

The following data/configuration packages are explicitly added to the Gauss v43r2 nightly build to allow the pick them up in the tests:

  • Sim/Gauss HEAD
  • Gen/GENSER v11b
  • Gen/Generators v12b
  • Gen/LbPythia8 HEAD
  • Gen/Mint HEAD
  • Gen/EvtGenExtras HEAD
  • Sim/GiGaCnv HEAD
  • Sim/GaussTools HEAD
  • Sim/GaussCherenkov

lhcb-head: for tests of the next release of Gauss with new EvtGen against the head revision of LHCb, v44 series

This slot is to prepare the next release Gauss v44r4 that use the newest version of EvtGen v13 and generators.

To decouple from the G4 changes the test uses the released Geant4 v94r2p5 rebuilding it in the slot to pick up the correct Gaudi version.

The following data/configuration packages are explicitly added to the Gauss v44r3p1 nightly build to allow the pick them up in the tests:

  • Sim/Gauss v44b
  • Gen/GENSER HEAD
  • Gen/EvtGen HEAD
  • Gen/Generators HEAD
  • Gen/LbPythia8 HEAD
  • Gen/Mint HEAD
  • Gen/EvtGenExtras HEAD
  • Sim/GiGaCnv HEAD
  • Sim/GaussTools HEAD
  • DecFiles v27b

gaudi-head

This slot is to prepare the final version of Gauss (v45) that will use the newest version of EvtGen, all other generators libraries and Geant4.

It uses the head of all Gauss packages and in this slot also Geant4 HEAD, picking up 9.5.p02 is built for Gauss to use it.

lcg-head

To test final version of Gauss v45r0 against the new features of Gaudi and LCG

gauss-dev

This slot is to prepare the migration to the next version of HepMC and test future version of the LCG GeneratorsInterfaces packages. It requires a dedicated LCG nightly build. Currently this is not setup.
