Hello everyone, I’m new in HEP. Recently I was installing ROOT on my new laptop, MacOS. Not a big question, but I am curious about “What’s the difference between installing ROOT via brew and official?”
The reason is:
- When I use brew install in my terminal, like “brew install root”, it only takes a few seconds, and it seems to work fine.
- However, when using official download (download root file and then cmake …; cmake --build), it takes a long time.
Seems like there must be some different, otherwise there should not be such a big difference in installing time.
Also, I was wondering how everyone install their ROOT on mac, which way is recommended?
