Hello Tom,

Your third suggestion looks very attractive to me.

I downloaded g4beamline binary and it works on my slc6 now after yum some missing i686 libs. But I cannot find geant4 itself inside.

If I download and compile the source code of g4beamline, can I get a working copy of geant4 on my machine? I'd like to try open inventor, which is not easy to install on slc.

Thank you in advance.
