Description

We'd like to apply this patch to Geant for our build:

https://bugzilla-geant4.kek.jp/show_bug.cgi?id=2121

This is approved by Alex H and the DetSim group.

It's against HEAD, but should apply cleanly to 10_4_p02 or anything else recent. Let me know if there are any difficulties.

History

Since Krzysztof has signed-off, can we proceed?

The plan we agreed to on the phone was as follows:
- Apply the patch and start the build. If it builds cleanly, use this geant release with the nutools requested in #21500.
- If the build does not proceed cleanly, then just fall back to the official G4 release for #21500.

The patch (once I figured out how to download it) applies cleanly. Working on a build.

Both e15 and e17 builds are available. See http://scisoft.fnal.gov/scisoft/bundles/geant4/v4_10_4_p02b/geant4-v4_10_4_p02b.html

Please verify that this build of geant4 is as expected.

#4 Updated by Alexander Himmel 3 months ago

OK, Matt Strait is going to try to check it this afternoon.

Note that our ability to check it is dependent on this build being binary-compatible with the NOvA software stack built using the previous G4 version. If that turns out not to be true, then you'll just need to proceed with making nutools based on it, since that will be our only means of checking it.

If it checks out this afternoon, can we get the nutools/nu distribution tomorrow?
