Re: [ROOT] Beginner - difficulty compiling root (3.10.02) on debian

 I can only tell you what i did to install ROOT in debian woody gcc-2.95 in
 /usr/local ,  but i think it will be the same thing in sid or sarge.

 unpack gziped source in /usr/local
 cd /usr/local/root
 chown root:root root (i changed the ownership to root, the files come with
 other ownerships).
 ./configure linux --prefix=/usr/local
 make install

 Also in one of the systems i installed the instalation encountered an
 error, because it didn't find glxext.h symbolic link in some place
 (usr/include/GL), if this is your case, just do ln -s glxext.h
 /usr/X11R6/include/glxext.h (i think it has to do with graphic cards and
 opengl things) and it will work.

After installing you have to_

edit etc/
 write "/usr/local/lib/root "
 and then run ldconfig in a shell as root

 Fons Rademakers and Dejan Nikic, sorry i think i answered to you individually 
and not to the mailing list. Sorry for the inconvenience.

 I hope it helps
