Installation of an ILCSOFT release on Ubuntu Work in progress, under construction

Preamble

Trying to build ilcsoft on Ubuntu 15.10 on a Dell XPS 13 (2015). Feel free to browse through ILCSOFTMacOSX which talks about installing ILCSOFT on MacOS X. Some of the ideas discussed there might be relevant here.

  • You should turn on c++11
  • I avoid building CondDB, LCCD and other test beam packages to avoid having to bother with installing MySQL
  • Comment out installation of LCFIPlus. If you need it, you will need to handle problems building against TMVA
  • Assume to be building locally under:
/home/user/ilcsoft=
  • If you already have a ROOT installation and you want to use that one (i.e. link against that rather than having a second copy for ILCSoft), I suggest you change release-versions.py to reflect to your ROOT version and make a symbolic link to the installation location inside your ilcsoft base installation path. You will need to enable some features when building root:
 ./configure --enable-gdml --enable-python --enable-minuit2 --enable-builtin-ftgl --enable-unuran

  • I had to edit lcio/HEAD/src/cpp/include/UTIL/LCTime.h and make the CalendarTime struct to public Apparently GCC 5 has issues/features with helper subclasses! Also there in DD4hep/DDG4/Geant4UserParticleHandler
  • I had to edit root/5.34.30/include/Reflex/Builder/CollectionProxy.h (comes with root, same for all root releases) to comment out the forward declarations of the std containers and add #include for list, queue and stack. Otherwise, you get the error:

CHECK FIRST! IT MAY HAVE BEEN FIXED BY MARCUS
