Problems with installation

  • Make sure you cloned the repository with --recursive, to get the submodules
  • Make sure the version of gcc you are using accepts the option -std=c++11.
    Feel free to edit the Makefile and change the CXX variable

  • If you can't get it to work, open an issue and let's try to fix it.

Other issues

  • Segmentation fault (core dumped) right at the start.
    If you run into a segmentation fault before kima even prints anything to the terminal, it might be due to the header of the data files. When reading the data, make sure the skip (the third) parameter to the load or load_multi functions is set correctly. That is, make sure it matches the number of lines in the header of the file(s). If using load_multi, also make sure the headers occupy the same number of lines in all files.

I think something is wrong...

Let us know in the issues if you think there is a problem or if something doesn't work as expected.

I could do with some help analysing RVs

kima is free software and provided as is within the terms of the LICENSE. However, we are available to help if we can! The issue tracker is a good place to ask questions about kima or the analysis of RV data, but feel free to contact us by email if needed.
