No root executable when building from source

I don’t get root in its bin directory (I do get root.exe ), while on other systems I do. I did have to disable some ROOT options though as not everything available on our cluster. The CMake line is


ROOT Version: 6.19.01
Platform: CentOS 7
Compiler: gcc 6.3.1
CMake: 3.14.1__

Hi @KrisThielemans,
and welcome to the ROOT forum!

If memory serves me right (and it might not) it might be that -Dx11=OFF is responsible of this.
If you can confirm that’s the case, this might be material for a bug report (although root does need graphics to have full functionality (e.g. the splash screen, so the fix might not be obvious).

In the meanwhile, you can use root.exe (or symlink root to root.exe) to work around this issue.


yup, that’s the issue:

this is now

ok. great. thanks for confirming and the work-around!
