symmetric design w/ hbnet and unsatisfied_buried_penalty score terms

Hi All,

I am working on designing some symmetric structures and am currently using REF2015 + hbnet. In addition, I want to add the buried_unsatisfied_penalty. When I add this term to the score function, it works and can score 'non-symmetrized' structures just fine. However, when I try to score a structure that has been 'symmetrized' I get the following error: 

File: /home/benchmark/rosetta/source/src/core/pack/guidance_scoreterms/buried_unsat_penalty/graph/

[ ERROR ] UtilityExitException

ERROR: Assertion `symminfo->bb_is_independent(res_index)` failed.

I am not sure how to go about fixing this issue, so any advice on how to troubleshoot would be greatly appreciated!

Hmm.  You might get that error if your symmdef file is set up strangely -- if the asymetric unit isn't the first N residues of the pose.  Are you able to share your symmdef file?

Yes, absolutely. I've attatched below.

Are you also able to share a test case (a PDB file) for this?  If you don't want  to do so publicly, you can e-mail me at  I want to try to fix the buried_unsatisfied_penalty so that it makes no special assumptions of the setup of the symdef file, and it would be good to be able to use this as a test case as I do so, if I could.
