CMake Generate step failed rhel8

Hi here is the trouble during cmake installation following the README.md instructions.

cmake …/…/root
CMake Deprecation Warning at cmake/modules/RootNewMacros.cmake:8 (cmake_policy):
The OLD behavior for policy CMP0022 will be removed from a future version
of CMake.

The cmake-policies(7) manual explains that the OLD behaviors of all
policies are deprecated and that a policy should be set to OLD only under
specific short-term circumstances. Projects should be ported to the NEW
behavior and not rely on setting a policy to OLD.

Thanks for your help

ROOT Version: 6.24.00
Platform: rhel8.2
Compiler: cmake 3.18.2

I guess @oshadura can help you.

Hi @oshadura
Tell me if you need more information.
Aurélien

I believe we don’t have any of these targets in root…

I have shared around me to find the way to make it fit as you explain and told you back about the evolution of the situation.
Kind regards

Can you please tell me how to unload the unecessary components ?

check / clean your “CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH”:
echo ${CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH}
set | grep CMAKE

Hi, I have done what you told me … but it seems empty.

# echo ${CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH}
#

# set |grep CMAKE
#

Try (see if there is anything suspicious): export | grep DIR

Can it be that you have a “system-provided” ROOT 5 version (e.g. in “/usr/[bin|lib]” or “/usr/local/[bin|lib]”) installed?

# export | grep DIR
declare -x XDG_RUNTIME_DIR="/run/user/0"

About ROOT 5 … possible, we are working on share directory for the installation.

/Shared-dir1/2/3/root/root_v6.24.00/root-6.24.00

Before trying to build a new ROOT version, make sure that nothing in your “environment” points to another ROOT version.
Check:

which root
which rootcint
echo ${ROOTSYS}
echo ${PATH}
echo ${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}
echo ${PYTHONPATH}
# which root
/usr/bin/which: no root in (/usr/share/Modules/bin:/opt/lenovo/onecli:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/opt/pbs/bin:/opt/pbs/sbin:/root/bin)
# which rootcint
/usr/bin/which: no rootcint in (/usr/share/Modules/bin:/opt/lenovo/onecli:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/opt/pbs/bin:/opt/pbs/sbin:/root/bin)
# echo ${ROOTSYS}

# echo ${PATH}
/usr/share/Modules/bin:/opt/lenovo/onecli:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/opt/pbs/bin:/opt/pbs/sbin:/root/bin
# echo ${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}

# echo ${PYTHONPATH}

#

You run “cmake …/…/root”. Are sure that the “…/…/root” directory contains a clean source code of the ROOT version that you want to build?
Also, make sure that you start with a clean “build directory” (i.e. remove it and create anew).

Yes it is the clean uncompressed stuff. But ok I redraw all from 0 here is the result:

You cannot use the directory called build inside the ROOT sources as the build directory to build ROOT.

You need to create /shared-dir1/appli/produits/root-6.24/build and then run cmake -B /shared-dir1/appli/produits/root-6.24/build -S /shared-dir1/appli/produits/root-6.24/root-6.24.00 or equivalent.

The build instructions in the README on GitHub are not very clear, I will update them (or maybe remove them and simply point to the more complete and accurate https://root.cern/install/build_from_source ).

Does this help?
Enrico

The instruction in the README.md

Make a directory for building

    $ mkdir build
    $ cd build

Run cmake and make

    $ cmake ../root
    $ make -j8

Setup and run ROOT

    $ source bin/thisroot.sh
    $ root

# pwd
/shared-dir1/appli/produits/root-6.24/root-6.24.00
# cmake ../root

Yes as I said the instructions in the README are not very accurate and I’ll remove them in favor of a link to https://root.cern/install/build_from_source . They expect:

  1. that you run those commands not from the ROOT source directory as you are doing, but from one level above
  2. that the ROOT sources are stored in a directory called root, not root-6.24.00 like in your case

You can try this instead, which should work better:

  • create /shared-dir1/appli/produits/root-6.24/build (note that this build directory is not under root-6.24.00, and it should be empty
  • run cmake -B /shared-dir1/appli/produits/root-6.24/build -S /shared-dir1/appli/produits/root-6.24/root-6.24.0 which is independent of your pwd and specifies build directory and source directory explicitly
# mkdir build

# cd build/

# cmake ../root
CMake Error: The source directory "/shared-dir1/appli/produits/root-6.24/root" does not exist.
Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.

# cmake -B /shared-dir1/appli/produits/root-6.24/build -S /shared-dir1/appli/produits/root-6.24
CMake Error: The source directory "/shared-dir1/appli/produits/root-6.24" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.
Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.

# updatedb

# locate CMakeLists.txt
/usr/share/cmake/Modules/FortranCInterface/CMakeLists.txt

# pwd
/shared-dir1/appli/produits/root-6.24/build

Hi, cmake ../root can’t work: there is no /shared-dir1/appli/produits/root-6.24/root directory on your system.

For the second command, you need to pass the source directory to the -S option (see man cmake), which if I understand correctly is /shared-dir1/appli/produits/root-6.24/root-6.24.00, not /shared-dir1/appli/produits/root-6.24 as you passed.

Cheers,
Enrico
