Hi there
i have started to use CMSSW just now. I am using CMSSW package. i have encountered a problem in creating .root file.
I processed through pre-fabricated generator-level configuration include Configuration/Generator/python/
which created file. The suggestion is to run this using cmsRun but when i do so, the following error is displayed.

cms::Exception caught in cmsRun
---- Configuration BEGIN
Error occurred while creating PoolDBESSource
---- PluginNotFound BEGIN
Unable to find plugin 'LuminosityInfoRcd@NewProxy'. Please check spelling of name.
---- PluginNotFound END
---- Configuration END

Please tell me in somewhat nontenchical language, what mistake i am comitting.

I guess this public forum is not supposed to discuss internal CMS software issues, we have HyperNews for this.
Concerning this particular error mtssage - I'll send you privatelly the most probable source of the error.

Considering that this forum is entirely independent of CERN I'd say it's definately the wrong place for internal software discussions.

You are, of course, more than welcome on the forum - feel free to comment/contribute/ask questions wherever you like :)
