Thanks a lot for the help

Hi @Andrea_Baldassi ,
welcome to the ROOT forum!

This is a known problem with latest-stable/v6.26.02. You should find several hit on the forum, e.g. Error building ROOT from source on MacOS 12.4 - #2 by eguiraud or Installation issues ROOT from source on Ubuntu 22.04 - #3 by eguiraud . It is fixed in the master and v6-26-00-patches branches, and it will be fixed in the upcoming v6.26.04 patch release.


i tried with the older version, it seems to be working. Thanks a lot

In case anyone gets here, this is now fixed in latest_stable now that it was bumped to v6.24.06
