That's good news indeed. We also had some queries about dgtnix on the Mac as my frontend driver (dgtdrv.sf.net) needs it and I just finished a first version of dgt-support for the Scid chess database. (Most likely that will be in 3.6.27.)
Hence, I'd be very interested in also getting a binary of dgtdrv working on the Mac. I'd be happy if we could get this up as well.
Tord, I have no access to a mac myself, I was just able to lend one for some hours in the past and I was able to compile dgtdrv without any problems. I am pretty sure that the problems that were left are within the dgtnix library itself as my program dies in the initialisation. Pascal George mentioned, that handshake could be an issue and that he solved a similar problem with the Novag Citrine by setting the handshake lines properly using a soldering iron ;)
