Sorry, ignore this part. Somehow I completely forgot that the 1-loop

library of Package-X is loaded not immediately but during the first call

of PaXEvaluate.

So if you have already done some calculations with PaXEvaluate on a

running kernel, then

exp = PaXDiLog[2.7, 1] /. PaXDiLog -> X`DiLog

is sufficient. On a fresh kernel just call PaXEvaluate once (with any

input) and then it will work as well:

$LoadAddOns = {"FeynHelpers"};

<< FeynCalc`

PaXEvaluate[1]

exp = PaXDiLog[2.7, 1] /. PaXDiLog -> X`DiLog

Cheers,

Vladyslav
