This page lists all the ways you can install a bleeding-edge version of ROOT, i.e. one that was built last night from the head of the development branch.


The usual nightly restrictions apply: a build might have failed, a build might be unavailable for a particular configuration, features might be missing or not yet in release quality.

Pre-compiled binaries

Pre-compiled binaries for various platforms are available at this link. The usual instructions for the usage of our binary distributions apply.

LCG nightlies

If you have access to LCG, as it is the case on LXPLUS, for example, ROOT nightlies can be obtained by sourcing the relevant scripts:

source /cvmfs/<Platform+compiler>/
  • For python2, use lcg/views/dev3python2/
  • To get a ROOT version a few days old, replace latest with the desired day.
