Thanks Bertrand! I am now able to compile the root source tree.
However, I'm now having a problem with installation (probably another configuration problem on my end). When I try to install, I get:
Installing Emacs Lisp library in /home/glen/root-executable//share/emacs/site-lisp
Installing GDML conversion scripts in /home/glen/root-executable//lib/root
make: *** [install] Error 2
I ran configure with --prefix=/home/glen/root-executable --etcdir=/home/glen/root-executable/etc
If I try make install a second time, I get a many permission denied errors:
cp: cannot create regular file `/home/glen/root-executable/etc/vmc/.svn/text-base/Makefile.linuxia64gcc.svn-base': Permission denied
cp: cannot create regular file `/home/glen/root-executable/etc/vmc/.svn/text-base/Makefile.linuxicc.svn-base': Permission denied
cp: cannot create regular file `/home/glen/root-executable/etc/vmc/.svn/text-base/Makefile.linuxx8664gcc.svn-base': Permission denied
Even though I get the above error, it looks like everything was built and installed. However, when I try running root (e.g., root -b), the welcome text appears, but I never get the command prompt. Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks for the help!
