[mesa-users] Mass loss in MESA

Dear Bill,

I checked out the version 5329. The same problem persisted.

Then I realized that it might be a compiler issue (I am using ifort version
12.1.3). When I compiled with gfortran, it worked fine. My earlier problems
were also with ifort-compiled versions. I prefer ifort usually because of
lower running times. I will check now by compiling 4798 with gfortran,
which I suppose will work also.

Also, FYI, during compilation with ifort I had to edit the following line :

call do_pgstar_plots(s, must_write_files, ierr)


call do_pgstar_plots(s, ierr)

in star/public/star_lib.f to avoid a fatal error in the compilation.

Thus, in summary, the mass loss works fine with gfortran-compiled MESA, but
not with ifort-compiled MESA.

Thank you for your help.

With warm regards,
