Hello Arlindo,

It would be nice to know which line it actually breaks at. You could use a
debugger like Gdb or just change the values passed to each line that has

It is worth your time to learn how to use a debugger. From my personal
experience, using a debugger has probably cut my development time between
30-50% compared with just using print statements.

To use Gdb for a parallel program. First compile Gadget with the '-g'
compiler option. Then enter the following into your command line.

        mpirun -np 2 xterm -geometry 100x62 -sb -sl 10000 -e gdb ./Gadget2

I added a bunch of extra options to customize the x11 window. Then in each
of your two x11 windows enter the command line arguments (i.e. pass your
parameter file).

         start lcdm.param

Then you can set breakpoints and do other neat things by following these
helpful websites.

Best Regards
