Using the latest ROOT version on lxplus

Dear all,
I haven’t found any thread in the forum dealing with this problem, there are however several results via google, did unfortunately are not helpful.
I am trying to set up root 6.06.06 on lxplus. The procedure I am trying is to put the following in the .bashrc:

This produces the following error when attempting to run “root”:

[quote]root: /usr/lib64/ version `CXXABI_1.3.8’ not found (required by root)

Where is the mistake in there?
Hope you can help me!
Cheers and many thanks in advance,
Christian Heinz

Dear co-rooters,

Currently we are in version 6.12.04. I am trying to use it on lxplus, but I find my self a bit unable… What I do is the following

  1. source /cvmfs/
  2. source /cvmfs/

When I start root, I get the following error

[astamato@lxplus049 code]$ root
root: /lib64/ version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by /cvmfs/
root: /lib64/ version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by /cvmfs/
[astamato@lxplus049 code]$

I tried to see where is located on lxplus and it seems that it really is on /lib64/

$ locate

So I don’t know how to proceed… Any idea on how to use root 6.12.04 on lxplus?

Thanks in advance!

I’ve figured it out.
The trick is to login to lxplus7 i.e.

ssh -XYC

and then

source /cvmfs/

After that ROOT starts normally!
