      MacOS X 10.9, clang 5.1


      We (in ATLAS) use a central MacOS X 10.9 build machine to build nightly versions of our analysis software release against ROOT 6. Currently we use v6-02-02 for this.

      The ROOT binary is taken straight from the root.cern.ch webpage as far as I know. But in any case, it gives:

      The problem is that it's impossible to start an interactive root shell over ssh using this ROOT version. Because it crashes like:

      [bash][macatc52]:~ > root -b
      _RegisterApplication(), FAILED TO establish the default connection to the WindowServer, _CGSDefaultConnection() is NULL.
      fatal error: file

      It's interesting to note that while v5-34-24 in the same setup complains a bit as well, it does at least manage to start up correctly in the end.

      [bash][macatc52]:~ > root -b

      You can reproduce the issue by logging into a MacOS X 10.9 machine over ssh that has CVMFS access, and doing:

      export ATLAS_LOCAL_ROOT_BASE=/cvmfs/atlas.cern.ch/repo/ATLASLocalRootBase
      source ${ATLAS_LOCAL_ROOT_BASE}/user/atlasLocalSetup.sh
      localSetupROOT 6.02.02-x86_64-mac109-clang51-opt

      I believe that it should behave the same with the mac1010 version as well. That's available by doing:

      localSetupROOT 6.02.02-x86_64-mac1010-clang60-opt

      as the last command in the previous example.

      Of course the binaries work just fine when using them on a machine (like my laptop) directly.
