This feature is available for the following hostgroups and their respective subhostgroups:

  • machine_protection/linux

ROOT can be obtained and used either using conda (see below and here) or using CVMFS (see below).

Obtaining ROOT from CVMFS

This is probably the easiest method: ROOT is available on CVMFS for a variety of platforms, versions and toolchains. To make it available, a configuration script must be sourced:

source xxx

ROOT is then available in your $PATH and can be run with the root command (note the .q to exit the prompt).
