It should be possible to install CbmRoot with all needed files. This feature is needed not to install all the source when only the libraries are needed for example on the batch farm or on the /hera file system.

Installation of CbmRoot is possible. To use this feature one has to call cmake with the installation directory as parameter, e.g.

cmake <path_to_source_dir> -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=<path_to_install_dir>

After the installation the installation directory contains the following subdirectories

bin lib include share

In the bin directory there are a bash and a c shell script to setup the environment correctly. They are called and CbmRootConfig.csh.

In the lib and include directories the needed libraries and the headers are installed.

In the share/cbmroot folder the structure is equal to the directory structure to run the macros. Here you will find the following subdirectories

gconfig geometry input macro parameters

For the time being on macros from macro/run are installed. To run such a macro simply source the setup script from the bin directory and start root with one of the macros as parameter.
