How to compile entire framework agains a different version of ROOT

Do you really need it?

Very probably not - this is a rather emergency case. An example where it was really needed. The CMSSW_3_1_x uses ROOT 5.22.x. This ROOT version has a bug in the Qt interface. This bug has only been corrected in version 5.24.

Compiling CMSSW_3_1_x with ROOT 5.24.00

Step 0

Ask Leszek to install this CMSSW version to the standard location (/afs/ :-))

Step 1

In /afs/ do
ln -s /afs/ 5.24.00-totem

Step 2

Save the following script
export VO_CMS_SW_DIR=/afs/
export SCRAM_ARCH=slc4_ia32_gcc345
export LANG=C
source $VO_CMS_SW_DIR/
# this is in fact $CMSSW_RELEASE_BASE/src
cd /afs/
eval `scramv1 runtime -sh`
and run it.

Step 3

Go to /afs/ and edit all *root* files.

  1. Replace version with 5.24.00-totem.
  2. in rootrflx and rootcore change the path accordingly
  3. in xrootd modify the INCLUDE line like:
<environment name="INCLUDE" default="/afs/"/>

Step 4

Run the following commands in bash:

scram tool list|grep root|while read tool; do name=${tool%% *}; scram setup $name; done

Step 5: rebuild POOL

Go to Release/cmssw/slc4_ia32_gcc345/cms/pool/POOL_2_9_0_pre5-cms9/ and
  • copy *root* tool config files from CMSSW to POOL
  • repeat step 4 to load the changes
  • rebuild POOl: scram b distclean; scram b

Step 6: Recompile everything

scram b distclean
scram b

Step 7 : Solve problems

  • In DataFormats/Math/src/classes.h comment out lines like ROOT::Math::SymMatrixOffsets<2> symo2;. The SymMatrixOffsets is not a part of the official ROOT release.

  • In SimDataFormats/CrossingFrame/interface/CrossingFrame.h add lines

template <class T> const int CrossingFrame<T>::lowTrackTof = 0;
template <class T> const int CrossingFrame<T>::highTrackTof = 0;
template <class T> const int CrossingFrame<T>::minLowTof = 0;
template <class T> const int CrossingFrame<T>::limHighLowTof = 0;

  • In DataFormats/Candidate/src/ add lines

const unsigned int Candidate::longLivedTag = 0;

  • In DataFormats/ParticleFlowReco/src/PFBlockElement add const unsigned PFBlockElement::nTypes_ = 0;

  • In PhysicsTools/MVAComputer/src/ replace #include <TMVA/Methods.h> by

#include "TMVA/IMethod.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodANNBase.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodBDT.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodBase.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodBayesClassifier.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodBoost.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodCFMlpANN.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodCFMlpANN_Utils.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodCFMlpANN_def.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodCommittee.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodCompositeBase.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodCuts.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodDT.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodFDA.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodFisher.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodHMatrix.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodKNN.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodLD.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodLikelihood.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodMLP.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodPDEFoam.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodPDERS.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodRuleFit.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodSVM.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodSeedDistance.h"
#include "TMVA/MethodTMlpANN.h"

... and probably many others ... I gave up ...
