Where is the $SYSROOT/test directory for ROOT installation via conda


I am following the tutorial (https://root.cern.ch/root/htmldoc/guides/users-guide/Trees.html#creating-and-saving-trees), and it needs LibEvent.so to proceed.

The easiest way is to follow the instructions in the tutorial, but I ran into problem in which my
$SYSROOT/test folder is missing.

I am installing ROOT from conda, so $SYSROOT should be at : /home//.conda/envs//

I am wondering if this is the common scenario for ROOT installation through conda, and I hope if somebody could point out the solution for me.

Thanks in advance

_ROOT Version:6.24.00 (conda-forge channel, conda = 4.8.3)
_Platform:_Linux 3.10.0-1127.el7.x86_64
_Compiler:g++ (crosstool-NG 9.3.0 (comes with conda)

The “test” directory is only present in the “source code distribution” (it never gets copied into the “binary distribution”).

oh, ok.
so, if I pull the /test directory from the source, putting it into the $ROOTSY before compiling, the thing will work, am i correct ?

I guess you can copy the “test” directory (and its subdirectories) to any place you like (i.e., no need to pollute your “ROOTSYS”).

Thanks for your help !
