Problem installing ROOT on Ubuntu 15.10

Hi.

I’m trying to install ROOT root_v6.04.14.Linux-ubuntu14-x86_64-gcc4.8 on Ubuntu 15.10. After uncompress I do cd/root and ./configure --help obtaining:
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

​Could you please help me to fix it?

Thanks a lot,

you meant
[code]cd root[/code]without the slash.
It might even be better to do
[code]mkdir build
cd build
../root/configure[/code]

Cheers,
Philippe.

Thanks Philippe.

Unfortunately, nothing changed:

$ cd root/
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ ../root/configure
bash: ../root/configure: No such file or directory
$ ../../root/configure
bash: ../../root/configure: No such file or directory

Have you another suggestion?. I really appreciate your help.

Thanks,

Luz


Sorry but I don’t see a point here. I also tried with root_v5.34.34.Linux-ubuntu14-x86_64-gcc4.8 but the problem is exactly de same.
Thanks,

In both cases, you are downloading and unpacking a binary release for Ubuntu 14.04 (i.e. an already built version).

Hi,

If you want to build root yourself (using configure or cmake), you should take the source code (e.g. root_v5.34.34.source.tar.gz) the binaries don’t contain the configure script…

Cheers, Bertrand.

I made fool of my self. Now it seems to be working.
Thanks a lot!!
