Installation problem - missing libCint.so



I’m new to ROOT and I have just installed it.

If I try to run a c++ script invoking ROOT I get the following error message:

./restab: error while loading shared libraries: libCint.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I have checked and, indeed, libCint.so is not among the *.so files inside lib/.

Is it due to an installation problem?

I’m using root-6.16.00 on Fedora 29.

Thanks in advance,



The “libCint” comes with ROOT 5 and you use ROOT 6 (you need to build your “restab” application from scratch with ROOT 6).



Thanks for the answer.

Do you see any shortcoming in installing ROOT 5 instead of ROOT 6 given that my only reason for installing ROOT is to use the ./restab application?




It seems to me that you will anyhow need to rebuild your application for your new system so, it might be a good idea to start with the ready-to-use binary distributions for Fedora 29, which are provided by the ROOT team, which you just need to download and unpack.
