Which GCC version for Root 5.34.36?

Hi Rooters.

I am joining a team, where I plan to refresh a legacy code.
Bad news : it relies on Root 5.34.36.

I fail to compile this version of Root with gcc 11 on ubuntu 22.04 (it does find iostream),
and I now suspect that I must use an older version of gcc ? If so, how much older ?

ROOT Version: 5.34.36
Platform: Ubuntu 22.04
Compiler: Not Provided


At the time of releasing, April 2016, the compilers used were gcc48 and gcc49 on slc6 and centos7.

I hope this helps.


If you use the tip of the v5-34-00-patches branch, it might work with gcc 10.

It appears that I was misleaded by the obsolete wiki installation guide of the project. They do use ROOT 6. Very very sorry for the useless noise :frowning:
