Error with fitting histogram


when I try to fit my histogram with the following (just a linear fit) commands

root [8] TF1* fit = new TF1("fit","[0] + [1]*x",0.15,0.51);
root [9] hist_1->Fit("fit");

I get an error message:

Error in <TUnixSystem::DynamicPathName>: Minuit[.so | .sl | .dl | .a | .dll] does not exist in .::/usr/lib/root/5.17

Could anybody help me to solve this problem?

Do you have in the list of ROOT libs?
Which version of ROOT ?


No, I do not have any

Root version 5.17/05

Please give more info about your build. libMinuit should be created by default.
Why do you use 5.17/05 (never released) instead of eg 5.21/04 ?
