[CosmoMC] Error with params.ini file - Planck likelihood not

Post by Mason Ng » June 15 2017

I have managed to successfully build CosmoMC and the Planck likelihood on the cluster environment. I have also run (separately)

Code: Select allp>

mpirun -np 2 ./cosmomc test.ini
mpirun -np 2 ./cosmomc test_planck.ini 
which both produce outputs that are as expected. I am now trying to obtain test chains through params_generic.ini and I am getting the following error in the job log:

Code: Select allp>

It is probably something to do with the params_generic.ini file - it is here:

The provided params_generic (intended for doing on-cosmology runs) does not have any of those INCLUDE lines. See test_planck.ini for how to include Planck files and the readme for how to install them.

Thanks for the reply. I did try both "DEFAULT" and "INCLUDE" lines and they both result in the same error message.

I have seen test_planck.ini before as well, and I see that it uses the likelihood from batch2 (so with .ini). I was under the impression that I could do the same thing if I did

Code: Select allp>

DEFAULT(./data/clik/hi_l/plik/plik_dx11dr2_HM_v18_TT.clik)
It seems like I had the wrong idea?
