[mesa-users] missing kap data

Dear Benard,

You may fetch the opacity tables for the specific setup that you want and much more from the following link on my page:
Download opacity tables for MESA <ftp://ftp.ster.kuleuven.be/dist/ehsan/ASAMBA/kap_data.tar.bz2>.

There, you will find OP and OPAL tables (Type I and Type II) for a variety of mixtures (initial_zfracs).
To use, substitute $MESA_DIR/kap/kap_data.tar.bz2 with this file, and then execute “./build_data_and_export” (this is how I remember this used to work; hope still the same).
If all goes well, then, you will hopefully be able to run your model.

Best regards,
