Which is libx11 ROOT is looking for?


Still try to solve my messy problems of installing ROOT with a linux on 64 bit ppc. Now I am trying a Ubuntu version. ROOT asked for libX11-devel installed, I installed it ( it is called libx11-dev) and can see the libX11.so and header files. However, ROOT configure file doesn’t recogonize them and still ask me to install libX11-devel.

My question is which lib ROOT configure file is looking for? I suspect my library file is 32 bit, how can I tell it is 32 or 64 bit lib? Thank you very much.




if you want to build for 32-bit use: ./configure linux

For 64-bit: ./configure linuxx8664

To see what the default is use: ./configure

The best is to use the default and make sure you install the 64-bit version of X11.

Cheers, Fons.
