Open mesa/star/test/inlist and comment out this line:

!   load_saved_model = .true.

You might also want to comment out these for now (you can try them  

!   set_v_flag = .true.

!   change_net = .true.

Then edit the initial_mass (3 might be a good thing to try for a start).

And you'll also need to change initial_Z to 2d-2 (other Z's are  
available but they are not currently being included in the release --  
let me know when you'd like to have some other options beyond solar).

Each package makefile defines COMPILE; most use COMPILE_STD, but when  
I'm debugging (or just feeling paranoid) I set it to COMPILE_TO_TEST.

If you want to turn off testing in a package, edit pkg/make/makefile  
to change the definition of COMPILE, then cd pkg/test and do ./ 
cleanup and ./mk.  (NOTE: ./clean only does the test directory; ./ 
cleanup does the entire package)   When that finishes, do ./ck to  
check it, and assuming that is okay, do ./export to export it for use  
by other packages.
