When I opened AOD root file and clicked tree histogram in TBrowser, it hang and this is the error message:

Help… Is it broken installation or bug in this version? How to fix it? I opened the same root file in my old computer with old version ROOT and it works.

Welcome to the ROOT forum!
I don’t know snap, but you could try to take the binaries from the ROOT Web site Release 62206 - ROOT and see if it works.

It’s unlikely to be a broken installation, the setup doesn’t give much room to make mistakes there.

This kind of error isn’t one where I’d expect the snap integration to be particularly the issue. Snap specific issues would typically be missing packages, headers, compile flags or operations failing with permission denied where they’d work fine normally. The most basic case of opening a .root file is likely something unrelated to being a snap itself (but might be related to how I’ve compiled it?).

The first thing I’d recommend is try the nightly builds and see if it’s reproducible there, you can swap to nightlies with sudo snap refresh root-framework --channel=edge and swap back again with sudo snap refresh root-framework --channel=stable Edit: Strictly speaking the current stable release is newer than the nightly, so if these commands don’t work, try sudo snap remove root-framework followed by sudo snap install root-framework --edge for the nightly.

There’s an issue on Github that claims that 6.22.06 has a problem with certain files made with older versions of ROOT, although the stack trace doesn’t look similar, it could potentially be related.

Thanks. It works in the nightly.

Glad to see it’s working :slight_smile:

I’m unsure about ROOTs policies for issues that are already fixed in nightlies, but given the low level nature of the problem I’d say it’s probably worth filing an issue or commenting on the one above to comment you’ve experienced something similar. If the other user hadn’t already mentioned their issue I’d have been panicking a lot more, having other users validate issues as reproducible is worth a lot.

@Alkegit21 if you want to open an issue at Issues · root-project/root · GitHub as James suggested that is totally ok – please make sure to provide some way we can easily reproduce the crash (e.g. on CERN LXPLUS, or in a Docker container, or on our own machines given we run a specific ROOT version…) so we can easily figure out if the issue is still present, or in which version it’s present, etc.

Cheers,
Enrico
