Note 1: Before downloading a binary version make sure your machine contains the right run-time environment. In most cases it is not possible to run a version compiled with, e.g., gcc4.0 on a platform where only gcc 3.2 is installed. In such cases you'll have to install ROOT from source. See the configurations used to build the binaries below.

To install, unzip and untar the file. For example:

$ gunzip   root_v5.11.06.Linux.slc3.gcc3.2.3.tar.gz
$ tar xvf  root_v5.11.06.Linux.slc3.gcc3.2.3.tar

This will create the directory root. Before getting started read the file README/README. Remember, you can find the full documentation of the ROOT classes on this web site at the location Classes and Members. The distribution also contains all tutorials and a set of test programs.
