This will be basic questions… rpm -ql shows /usr/lib64/libgif.so.4
and /usr/lib64/libgif.so.4.1.6 . Are those the correct versions? if so, How can i indicate in the build process to search in /lib64 instead of /lib?
But ld complains about usr/lib/libgif.so - I hope that’s actually /usr/lib/libgif.so? What does file /usr/lib/libgif.so say? Could you post your CMakeCache.txt? Which version of CMake do you use? Which operating system is this on?
Hi Alex, thanks for your response!
Here is what i got:
file /usr/lib/libgif.so gives /usr/lib/libgif.so: symbolic link to libgif.so.4.1.6'
Cmake version is 3.15.2
for cat CmakeCache.txt…I didn’t get if you were asking for some specific line or the complete file. let me know about it to edit this message since i can’t paste all the info due to the limit number of characters for this message(Cache file is ~150000/32000 ).
…and btw you should be able to take our CentOS7 binaries for your system, or even pull in the packages from EPEL - in general there’s no need for your to build ROOT yourself unless you need to debug something, develop ROOT,…
Hi Alex!! first of all, thanks for all your help so far, I really appreciate the time you spent in this post…
I’m trying to set up all this software in a Server, i tried to use yum ... the first time but then i realized that i don’t have any root privilege in the server. That’s why i’m doing all this stuff (If there is an easier way to setup the software without using “root-privileges” and i’m to dumb to see it, please let me know)
I download the link that you suggested Axel.
I untar, realize the /bin directory inside the directory /root and just run the programs (i didn’t use cmake at all), Seems working, but is that the correct way?.. I spent almost a week trying to get ROOT working.
if so, i don’t understand what did i do wrong in the previous build process. Sorry if this is a basic question… I don’t see any /bin directory in my previous attempts. However, in your approach there is a /bin right away, Why is that?
Here is the info that you required, the output of -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=../root-6.20.04/install-root /root-6.20.04 : OUTPUT.txt (11.0 KB)
