I ran the MAUS installation on a fresh install of Scientific Linux 6.2. The installation seemed to be completed, but the tests showed some errors. When I checked the install log, there was something about a fortran 90 compiler not being found, in the section where numpy is supposed to be installed. I think it shows at the end of the tests, that 0% of numpy, matplotlib, etc. has been installed.

I tried running MAUS afterwards, but it couldn't load several of its classes. I've attached the install log. (GCC version: 4.4.6-3)

Are you sure you installed all of the dependencies in the install guide? I recall we saw this before on the RAL machines and I think it was a dependency issue. I can try to dig through old issue trackers...

Yes, I'd installed all of the dependencies. Update: It seems to have fixed itself. The problem seemed to be using a symbolic link for the maus root directory before installing maus.

Yeah, that's a ROOT feature in fact (and is written in the install guide).

I added a test recently that would even check for such symbolic links so hopefully it will complain next time...
