Hi James,

That's a great project, and I'm glad you're trying to reproduce results before expanding upon them.

Since these are my models and inlists, I'll take a look at this and see if I can reproduce this problem. Can you provide me/us the exact versions of the inlist files that work and don't work?

Dear All,

I'm using mesa-r5118 on Ubuntu (16.04 LTS) with mesasdk (version 20141023) and have encountered a problem when enabling Super Eddington winds from the following script. I'm currently using MESA for a final year project at University and am using the inlist_flash inlist of the "Hydrogen Burning on Accreting White Dwarfs: Stability, Recurrent Novae, and the Post-Nova Supersoft Phase" paper from http://cococubed.asu.edu/mesa_market/inlists.html (3rd from bottom) and I'm planning to expand upon it by varying the metallicity of a 1.00Msun WD and evolving it over time to see how it affect its evolution.

I'm currently trying to check if I get the same results from the paper by evolving the initial stars from the steady_burning_models directory with their mass_change equal to the steady burning rate of the paper above (from Table 1 in the paper). This all works fine for Roche-Lobe, however, when I comment out the Roche-Lobe commands and enable the Super Eddington Wind commands it runs for 10 steps then stops with the following error.

star_finish_step ierr 2

How can I enable Super-Eddington Winds for this script and not have it crash?

Many Thanks for the help,
