So I am putting ROOT on a new computer running centOS 5.
I downloaded the binaries and set the environment variables (I think).
Now, if I cd to $ROOTSYS/bin/ and do
I get the error
[root@localhost bin]# ./root
./root: error while loading shared libraries: libXpm.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Does anyone know anything about this?
Thanks and sorry if this is a total beginner question.
I am trying to learn ROOT myself, but I have learned to install missing libraries.
If you need x86 32 bit
try to download the rpm from
rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/ … 6.rpm.html
if 64 bit use
rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/ … 4.rpm.html
Source is also available on those pages if you want to compile yourself. I forget the rpm commands to install, but try
rpm -Uvh libXpm-3.*
This should allow the X Window system to work with ROOT.
Again, I’m not a ROOT expert, I just have supplied missing libraries for my Fedora installations before. I hope this works, if not, sorry to have wasted your time and posted here.
