As a casual user of MGED/BRL-CAD but with an interest in keeping up my skills, I'd like to install it on my iMac at home (running Snow Leopard). I could certainly update my home PC and be more current, but I'm trying to migrate away from my PC. Two questions:
1. It appears from the download page that the last Mac OS X release was over two years ago. Has development stopped on that platform?
2. Even if I were to select an old version (which I don't want to do and would probably fail over to using the more recent PC version), would I have to compile from scratch?
Development most certainly has not stopped. We're just not producing binary releases very often for any platform.
Since you're on a Mac, I'd actually suggest getting the latest source distribution and compiling from source. The instructions (included in the README and INSTALL files) are very simple.
Hi, I'm very new to this & am very interested in learning this software. I am running a MacBook Pro with 10.6.4. Where exactly are the instructions located? the read me part of the installation doesn't specify re-compile instructions, so I am lost. This is likely a very basic question, so apologies for my lack of understanding.
Thanks in advance,
To compile, you'll need to download a source distribution instead of a binary distribution. From there, the README and INSTALL files should be obvious.
