Can't call AliRun::Init(config)

Hello AliROOTers,

Even if I am not sure if it is the right forum to report AliRoot problems I am doing it anyway to seek help from all corners.

I have ROOT (root-v5-28-00), geant3 (geant3-v1-11), and AliRoot_v4-20-Release installed and compiled on Mac OS X
I also have ROOT (root-v5-26-00), geant3 (both 1.9 and 1.10), and AliRoot_v4-18-Release installed and compiled on SLC4.7

I must admit that I did not follow the ‘Compile Aliroot on Mac OS X 10.6’ instructions given on … with_cmake

but I think it won’t matter as the problem I mention below occurs at both the systems.
when I run the macro ‘menu.C’ in aliroot It ‘Can’t call AliRun::Init(config)’ . See for youself

Type ? for help. Commands must be C++ statements.
Enclose multiple statements between { }.

Error: Can’t call AliRun::Init(config) in current scope menu.C:26:

Help needed of course as I can’t seem to figure out.


Yes I recommend that you post this question in one of the AliRoot forum.
