 Dear Gaters,

The ROOT version is 5.22.  Geant4.92_P02. (Both running fine).
GATE  is also running fine  and ROOT files are produced, but I have

those plotter commands.   
gcc version 4.1.1 20061001 (Red Hat 4.1.1-30) ; on a 64-bit machine.
I went through the archives and saw a similar issue reported back in Aug
Thanks In Advance
