Setting up root

To use root you need to add the environment variable $ROOTSYS and append locations to $PATH and $LD_LIBRARY_PATH. A good way to do this is add the following to your ~/.bash_profile:

export ROOTSYS=/usr/local/root/v5.22.00/slc5.gcc3.4/root
export PATH=${PATH}:${ROOTSYS}/bin

Where /usr/local/root/v5.22.00/slc5.gcc3.4/root is the path of the current stable build of root (ie. check this is correct!)

For example; here are my .bashrc and .bash_profile.
