Dear Richard,

Thanks for your post.

I was unfortunately not able to reproduce your crash.

The backtrace you kindly provide in the pddtest001.log file points to a position in the code where FLUKA databases are read. The crash itself is not when opening the database files, but inside the reading loop. This may suggest something is off in your system/installation.

As a first check: could you make sure that the files under the data/ subdirectory of your FLUKA installation were not corrupted? You may want to unpack them anew.

Also, i note you are running version 4-2.0, which is behind the latest release available from the download page. You may want to update.

With kind regards,
