I’m a physics student who wants and needs to learn how to use ROOT! I’m on a virtual machine where the host OS is Windows and the virtual one is Ubuntu 18.04.2 64 bit.
I’ve been trying to build ROOT for some time now, but somehow it doens’t work.
This is a copy of the terminal while doing the build itself. I’ve done it by copying the GitHub file and installing CMake before hand.

I hope what I said makes some sense!
