*** Break *** bus error when using gSystem->Load()

Hello ROOT experts,

I haven’t used ROOT in a couple of days, so on terminal startup, I typed in “root”. This gave me:

*** Break *** bus error Bus error (core dumped)

I traced the problem back to my rootlogon.C file which contains gSystem->Load(“blah.so”). Removing these from the logon file means ROOT runs as usual. So the problem lies with gSystem->Load(…). I’m not sure why this has occurred, as the .so files haven’t changed at all.

Any ideas as to why this is happening?



Hello again,

This turned out not to be a ROOT-specific issue. Other issues are now showing, and it is linked to my hard drive.
