hi connor,

there is not enough information provided to offer suggestions.
best practice is to include one's inlists and any customized run_star_extras.

For the past couple of weeks, I have been attempting to create a model of adiabatic mass loss with constant entropy. I have been unsuccessful in my endeavors and was wondering if anyone in this group knew how to perform such a simulation.

No matter what I set the stellar parameters to, I am told that the temperature is "too low" for integration. I could put 10d30 as a temperature, and the program will still tell me that it cannot perform the integration. If anyone here could lend a hand, it would be greatly appreciated!
