TStreamerInfo.cxx:1110:29: warning: ‘this’ pointer is null

Hi all,
I was trying to build root from the source and then suddenly saw this warning. Can someone please explain its effects and resolution?

_ROOT Version:6.24.04
_Platform: Ubuntu 22.04
_Compiler: gcc (Ubuntu 11.4.0-1ubuntu1~22.04) 11.4.0

Thanks a lot !

Are you trying to build a ROOT version downloaded from the ROOT Web site? When are you seeing the warning? For which class ?
@pcanal might be able to help you more on this


Thanks Lorenzo,
I installed the latest stable release using git clone hopefully it will work fine.
Yes, I was trying to build the source file downloaded from ROOT release.

I am not sure, as I have not saved the verbose, but I think it was ROOTIO or something related to input-output.
