Description

We currently are using a patched version of geant4 v4_10_04_p02b: geant4/v4_10_4_p02b/source/geant4.10.04.p02

We have a bug fix for the intersection of Z planes to this version/patch we'd like to include -- a one-line change: see attached patch file.
Run from the source directory above (or equivalent) so the relative path inside the patch file lines up

We request a new patched version of geant4 (v4_10_4_p02c):
SL6: Linux64bit+2.6-2.12
Qualifiers: e17:prof

Let us know if we can provide further information if necessary.

Background: https://geant4-forum.web.cern.ch/t/geomnav0003-error-with-g4-10-4-2-but-not-g4-10-6/3343/3
This is mitigated in g4 v4_10_6 but we're not ready to upgrade to that version hence this patch request.

Correction ... we are requesting a patch v4_10_4_p02d (SL6, e17) since the "c" version is the SL7 version.

Got it. I presume you'll be wanting the same change for the e19 art 3.06 stack eventually.

#3 Updated by Gavin Davies about 2 months ago

Highly probable, but just in case there are any further amendments to the e19 art 3.06 stack down the line we can just hold off on that for now.

#4 Updated by Lynn Garren about 2 months ago

Will you also need a nug4 build?

#5 Updated by Lynn Garren about 2 months ago

Yes, of course you will, and making a nulite distribution with an updated nug4 is the easiest way to get the build out.

  • % Done changed from 0 to 100
