Missing pyROOT files for v5.34.03 Mac OS X 10.6


I just downloaded the binaries for ROOT v5.34.03 for Mac OS X 10.6 ia32 with gcc 4.2.1, version 5.34.03:
ftp://root.cern.ch/root/root_v5.34.03.m … 4.2.tar.gz
and note that the pyROOT libraries seem to be missing from this tarball.
Is it possible to get a new tarball with pyROOT libs included?

Hi Heather,

Please download the 64bit version: ftp://root.cern.ch/root/root_v5.34.03.m … 4.2.tar.gz
Since the default architecture on MacOS X is 64 bit, the support for 32bit version has been dropped at CERN, that’s the reason why we don’t have Python in it (we don’t have the 32bit Python libraries anymore on Mac OS)

And note that it is fairly easy to build ROOT from source on Mac OS, in case you would need something which is not in the pre-built binaries :wink:

Cheers, Bertrand.
