It seems my problems with the latest production version of ROOT and Mac OS X are not over yet. Therefore, I once again seek advice from the great minds on this forum.
On Mac OS X 10.4.10/PPC and ROOT 5.16, I am unable to get any graphic output.
The X11 server is started, and the splash screen if correctly displayed.
But if I type for instance:
ROOT with hang, seemingly in a kind of endless loop (CPU usage almost maxed out). I can still fall back to CINT by pressing CTRL+C.
The symptoms are the same if I try to type:
Compiled applications using the TG* classes also fail at start. For instance, I cannot successfully launch “guitest”.
I stumble across this problem with the precompiled version of ROOT which Fons has been kind enough to put online today, or with a compilation from source with default options.
I am missing something obvious ? The DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH and ROOTSYS environment variables are set. This seems like a local configuration problem on the machine I am using, however I didn’t have problems with previous version of ROOT (5.14).
Thanks a lot for your help.
