More issues with conda/root 6.24 (after I installed geant4)

_ROOT Version: root_base-6.24.0-py38h9fb3dc4_0.json - can’t run root so that’s the meta tag
_Platform: OSX 11.3 (Big Sur)
Compiler: XCode 12.5

I had a running root install but then did conda install geant4 to help out a student debugging.
Now when I do, in a clean terminal

source $HOME/miniconda/etc/profile.d/
conda activate root_env #

I get:

Module ROOT_Foundation_C not found.
Module ROOT_Config not found.
Module ROOT_Rtypes not found.
Module ROOT_Foundation_Stage1_NoRTTI not found.
Module Core not found.
Module Rint not found.
Module RIO not found.
Module MathCore not found.
Module Hist not found.
Assertion failed: (clingInterp.getMacro(“gROOT”) && “Couldn’t load gROOT macro?”), function RegisterCxxModules, file /Users/runner/miniforge3/conda-bld/root_base_1618934270445/work/root-source/core/metacling/src/TCling.cxx, line 1313.

Mr. Google doesn’t seem to know about this particular issue. Any ideas? I can revert to non-conda root to get my work done but I am sad that helping a student busted my setup.

Thanks, Heidi

BTW, this is part of my efforts to get my collaboration away from ROOT 5…

Hi Heidi,
is the non-conda ROOT installation still in the environment when you conda activate root_env? It’s best to only have one ROOT installation set up at a time.


No, that was my original suspicion and I then went to the clean setup to avoid any of my own code.

I use a standalone setup, not .profile/.bashrc exactly to avoid that kind of issue.

badenv.txt (7.7 KB)

This is env > badenv.txt just in case… I don’t see root outside of root_env.

Uhm I don’t see anything obvious either. Maybe @chrisburr has an idea?

One thing, when I installed geant4 it backdated the root version according to the logs. I’m now testing to see if reupdating root will repair this.
