Build error V5.30.0 and V5.28.00e

Hi all,

I have been trying to build the two ROOT versions mentioned above on Ubuntu and RHEL5 (both 64-bit) with the same error in both cases:

/home/username/xxx/root_5.28.00_64bit/bin/root.exe: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I am not sure what I am doing wrong here. I am configuring with following command:

./configure linuxx8664gcc --enable-roofit --prefix=/home/username/xxx/root_5.28.00_64bit

GCC is version 4.5.2 on ubuntu

Thank you very much in advance for any input



Looks like the environment is not correctly set. Try . /home/username/xxx/root_5.28.00_64bit/bin/ if you use bash or if you use tcsh:source /home/username/xxx/root_5.28.00_64bit/bin/thisroot.csh



Found the error. The LD_LIBRARY_PATH did not point the right direction. I had it setup according to the README which points to export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ROOTSYS/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH, while the scripts points it to export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ROOTSYS/lib/root:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
