I just installed v. 7.12.2 on am iMac with OSX 10.5.8. I have the X11 app.

I found the BRL software in the /usr/brlcad/rel-7.12.2/bin directory and tried the path command with that directory string.

when I type "mged" on the command line I get the error notice "Bus error" .

Can you please help?

Thanks.

    You'll need XQuartz in addition to the X11 that comes pre-packaged. http://xquartz.macosforge.org/landing/ Just install this and fire up MGED, it ought to run.
