what’s the difference between mode_compute6 and 4 in dynare when using bayesian approach for estimation? which one is better? many result cannot be repeated even using the same mode_compute type,it seems bayesian method is not reliable in dynare.and another thing,when using mode_compute4,it usually shows error message as follows,but mode_compute 6 does not:

-------------------------------mode_compute6 error message-----------------

Log data density [Laplace approximation] is -6855.383601.
