Please make sure SQLite is installed on your system before compiling
FairSoft, as this is required by CbmRoot. Failing compile FairSoft
with SQLite support will lead to a crash during the CbmRoot compilation.
To install SQLite on Debian/Ubuntu and OpenSuse use
Debian/Ubuntu:
sudo apt install sqlite3 libsqlite3-dev
OpenSuse:
sudo zypper install sqlite3 sqlite3-devel
It is currently not recommended to install FairSoft (and likewise FairRoot and
CbmRoot) with administrator privileges, as this may create conflicts with
existing software. For an installation which is to be shared between users
on a MacOS or linux system it is recommended to use the opt/ folder.
Consider also using the auto installer (see section 3).

4. Further remarks
Compiling CbmRoot with multicore support using "make -j", without
specifying the number of threads is known to cause MacOS and Ubuntu
20.04 LTS systems to freeze. Please explicitly choose a number of cores
which is suitable for your system.
