ROOT 6.04/06 on Ubuntu 14.04 tutorials/eve/box.C crashes

I made a root6 installation on Ubuntu 14.04, and having problem with eve. For example, running tutorials/eve/box.C gives the result below. With root5, don’t have such a problem. Any advice how to fix this is welcome, Thomas

Hi Thomas,

I had a chat with Vasil (one of our Cling/llvm experts) about this problem (because you get a crash in llvm). And he noticed, in the trace back you sent, that the llvm library in which it crashes is not the one provided by root but one located in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ on your machine. So it looks like you have your own llvm installed. I will make a bug report with your question. According to Vasil it will be difficult to reproduce this issue. May be you scan send us your LD_LIBRARY_PATH ?


Jira ticket here:

According to me it will be easy to reproduce this issue.

This is Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS / x86_64 here and ROOT v6-05-02.
declare -x DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH="/opt/ROOT/v6-05-02/lib"
declare -x LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/opt/ROOT/v6-05-02/lib"

BTW. This issue seems to be closely connected to: Segmentation violation: th2polyHoneycomb.C


That’d me my guess, too. Thomas, do you have an nvidia card?

Cheers, Axel
