Re: How to combine data of different FLUKA runs

Hi Vasilis

Thank you for your answer. Your second way works fine. But I was not
able to get your first suggestion to work.

I can duplicate my standard run in the Run Fluka tab. I save the input
file in an already created subfolder of the standard run. I enter a
Number for the random seed and select the executable.
When I start the run by clicking Run, flair tries to attach to the run.
After a few minutes the Status changes to Finished OK, without starting
to calculate anything. The standard run in the main directory finishes
successfully. So I guess it is not because of the input file.

I tried to copy some eventually needed files to the subdirectory,
without any success.

I see the following commands in the flair output:

Cmd: /usr/bin/nohup /usr/local/fluka/flutil/rfluka -e myfluka -M 3 neutron_rw3
/usr/bin/nohup: ignoring input and appending output to `nohup.out'
Cmd: /usr/bin/nohup /usr/local/fluka/flutil/rfluka -e myfluka -M 3 run1/neutron_rw3
/usr/bin/nohup: ignoring input and appending output to `nohup.out'

A temporary directory is created for the run in the subfolder and it isn't deleted after finishing the run. It contains the following files:

~/flukawork/test $ ls fluka_17313
elasct.bin fort.1 fort.12 fort.2 nuclear.bin xnloan.dat
fluodt.dat fort.11 fort.15 neuxsc.bin sigmapi.bin

The manually created subdirectory only contains the input file.

Any suggestions what I am doing wrong?

Best Regards
