Hi Mike,

All you need is to go in the lib source directory and run a make there. It will take care of only that library and it will install it automatically. You will need the environment variables to be properly set otherwise it will not work. Please note that for a full installation the environment variables are set at the beginning.

Let's say I have changed something in


then you go one folder up and execute make

cd ..;make

At the end you will see a message similar to the one bellow

Creating/replacing object files in ...path_to_installed/geant4.9.3/lib/geant4/Linux-g++/libG4brep.a ...

ar: creating ...path_to_installed/geant4.9.3/lib/geant4/Linux-g++/libG4brep.a

which means you are done (in less then a minute).

Good luck,
