I did it again and after running the script - sh makePythia6.macosx - I'v got libraries
libPythia6.a,, libPythia6.dylib. I moved them in my root libraries (root/lib), and
when I started root, the complain was

"Error in <TUnixSystem::DynamicPathName>: libEGPythia6[.so | .sl | .dl | .a | .dll] does not exist in .:/Users/georgejaparidze/root/ lib:/Users/georgejaparidze/root/lib:/Users/georgejaparidze/root/lib:/ Users/georgejaparidze/root/lib::/Users/georgejaparidze/root/lib"

which seems natural - I don't have ibEGPythia6 in my root/lib. Somehow makePythis6.macosx is not generating this library.

My rootlogon.C is this:

#include "Riostream.h"
TBrowser *b = new TBrowser("browse", "My Browserro"); printf("\nWelcome to the Macintosh version of ROOT\n\n"); }

  I've commented out gSystem->Load("libEG") as you advised, and afterwards I'll need to install AliRoot (the last two commented lines are for AliRoot libraries).

Anyway, I need to have libEGPythia6 in my root/lib and can't see how I can do it, how can I get this library for Mac.

What am I missing here?
Thanks again,
