OSX 10.5.5 Leopard
Installing Exodus on Mac is almost identical to installing on Linux but on older Macs it is a little harder to acquire and configure the dependencies.
This install was performed on OSX 10.5.5 (Leopard)
1 Installing dependencies
1.1 Installing C++ compiler
Older macs might need to install XCODE tools from http://developer.apple.com after free registration. This is unfortunately a large 1Gb download.
Newer macs have XCODE tools installer in the Applications or Library folder and you just have to install it.
The XCODE package includes subversion
1.2 Installing Postgres
Once downloaded, just do a standard install and remember the admin user password.
1.3 Installing Boost
Minimum required is boost 1_33. Here we install 1.38.
Optionally get ICU to fully support unicode in boost regex. How to do this on Mac OSX is unknown at the moment.
Download and unpack Boost Source
In safari get http://downloads.sourceforge.net/boost/boost_1_38_0.tar.bz2 and move it to your home directory.
Open a classic console shell (terminal)
cd ~ tar xvf boost_1_38_0.tar.bz2 cd boost_1_38_0
./configure --help ./configure --with-libraries=date_time,filesystem,regex,thread
Optionally, speed up the build of Boost by only doing the libraries and versions required. ADD additional config to the BJAM_CONFIG line as follows:
BJAM_CONFIG= -j4 variant=release link=shared
Install Boost after becoming superuser
sudo make install
Ensure boost includes can be found. This step might be eliminated in a better Exodos installer.
sudo ln -s /usr/local/include/boost-1_38/boost /usr/local/include/boost
2 Building and Installing exodus
Download Exodus using Subversion
cd ~ mkdir exodus cd exodus svn co http://svn.neosys.com/svn/trunk cd trunk/exodus
Ensure postgres can be found (change 8.3 to your version) and check pg_config can run
Confirm where your boost libraries are installed and what their suffix is if any.
find /usr | grep libboost
Use a modified configure command using the boost library suffix from the previous step. The leading - is required.
make sudo make install
From here on the steps are almost identical to Log_of_an_installation_of_libexodus_on_Centos_5.3 (start after "sudo make install")
