History isn't being logged in 6.16

ROOT Version: 6.16
Platform: Mac OS X
Compiler: clang?

I upgraded from ROOT 5.34 to ROOT 6.16, and suddenly my history is not being saved. Is there an additional step necessary to enable history logging?


@aregjan, can you check if you have $ROOTSYS/etc/system.rootrc next line:
Rint.History: $(HOME)/.root_hist

In this case, $(HOME)/.root_hist is the file, where your history is saved.

Yes, already checked that. The line in systems.rootrc is pointing to the correct file…and yet the file has stopped growing.

Can you check if file is writeable (it has proper rights)?

Oh god I am dumb. Yes, it appears that the install (which was done as a root) changed the ownership of .root_hist. Thank you @oshadura.
