Running pythia 8 as a plug in


I am attempting to run Pythia as a root plug-in. I have compiled Pythia 8130 with the configure option --enable-shared, but instead of creating .so libraries, I end up with .dylib’s, i.e. in $PYTHIA8/lib I have libpythia8.dylib.

Then, when I try to run the pythia8.C example from the tutorials, I receive:

Root is compiled from source on my machine. After the fact, I did ./configure --enable-pythia8 --with-pythia8-incdir=$PYTHIA8/include --with-pythia8-libdir=$PYTHIA8/lib

(where $PYTHIA8 is my pythia install directory) and that seemed to be successful. (Do I need to do make again now? I haven’t yet).

Any idea on what I’m doing wrong? Thanks very much for any help.


The Makefile for Pythia8 is not yet running for macosx.
