Thank you for your reply. I had already tried the second option and it fails as well:

Compiling SiliconSD.cc ...
src/SiliconSD.cc: In member function ‘virtual G4bool SiliconSD::ProcessHits(G4Step*, G4TouchableHistory*)’:
src/SiliconSD.cc:51:44: error: no matching function for call to ‘G4VPhysicalVolume::GetCopyNo(int)’
src/SiliconSD.cc:51:44: note: candidate is:
/geant4.9.4.p02/source/geometry/management/include/G4VPhysicalVolume.hh:142:19: note: virtual G4int G4VPhysicalVolume::GetCopyNo() const
/geant4.9.4.p02/source/geometry/management/include/G4VPhysicalVolume.hh:142:19: note: candidate expects 0 arguments, 1 provided

This is what made me suspect that my Geant4 version is out of date. However, I have downloaded the source for the latest beta, and the header file seems to indicate that even the latest version will not take any arguments. From source/geometry/management/include/G4VPhysicalVolume.hh:

virtual G4int GetCopyNo() const = 0;

Is the tutorial wrong, or am I still missing something critically important? I know a virtual function can be overwritten by a definition later, but I can't find one. Doing geant4.10.00.b01/source$ grep -r "GetCopyNo" . shows no header or function call with any arguments passed.
