Install root and pyroot under MacOS Monterey

I just want want to install root on MacOS Monterey with python support, i.e. I want to use pyROOT.

Hi,
I don’t think we have pre-compiled ROOT binary for MacOS 12 (Monterey). You should probably build from source, after installing the command line tools from Xcode, see Dependencies - ROOT.
Somebody else might know more, I have not yet installed MacOS 12 on my machine.

Cheers

Lorenzo

Hi,
for anyone ending up here, you can also install ROOT on Monterey via conda or brew, see Installing ROOT - ROOT .

Cheers,
Enrico

Many thanks, I installed ROOT using Macports. It works fine. It is compatible with Python 3.10.

I think this is still not 100% working, unfortunately.
After trying the workarounds involving downgrading to XCode 13.0, I can get ROOT installation working with Homebrew, but there is still no PyROOT.

(This is with macOS Monterey and Apple M1 chip)
