I am trying to run ROOT on CERN LXPLUS. I have a ~/rootlogon.C file and a ~/.rootrc file. In the ~/.rootrc file is the following line:
I am a CMS member and therefore setup the needed ROOT environment variables from the central installations of CMSSW as in the following:
However, when I call “root” from any directory other than the home directory, the ~/rootlogon.C file is not executed as I would expect from the contents of my ~/.rootrc file. Furthermore, if I am in a directory that has its own rootlogon.C file, the local rootlogon.C file is run, despite the fact that ~/.rootrc supposedly points Rint.Logon to the ~/rootlogon.C. It’s as if ROOT ignores the fact that I have a ~/.rootrc file defined.
This only started happening within the last week or so, but I can’t exactly trace the problem back to a specific action that I took. Has anyone else experienced this problem, and if so, do you have any advice for me on how to get ROOT’s behavior back to normal?
