I want to install the last version of ROOT [ 6.14/02 - 2018-07-27] and when i am trying to do so i have faced some errors,

ld: library not found for -lcrypto
clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)
make: *** [lib/] Error 1

this how i do it :wink:
cd root && ./configure --all && make -j 4

Please help ?

ROOT Version: Not Provided
Platform: Not Provided
Compiler: Not Provided


configure/make is not supported any more: are you sure you are doing that? Can you try to configure with CMake?


Thanks for replay,

this what i get when i am using cmake :

[ 34%] Built target LLVMDebugInfoCodeView
make: *** [all] Error 2

    mkdir built
    cd  built
    cmake ../root
    make -j4  


On what platform are you? Is the root directory clean, i.e. with no remnants of the configure/make procedure or other?


I am using MacPro 10.13.6.

for the second one i am not sur that it is really clean and i don’t know how to verify.


You should delete all the ROOT folder and unzip again the source tarball


I have used Homedrew to install ROOT and it worked.

Thank you very much.
