gdivelog on Mac OS X (Tiger 10.4.3)

My traditional xmas present to myself this year was an iBook, so I thought I'd try and get gdivelog running on it.

It runs fine under X11 with Darwin Ports (

I will get around to updating the doco at some point, but briefly...

Install X11 server and the development tools from the OS X install DVDs.

Install Darwin Ports. Install libgnomeui and sqlite3 - their prereqs will be installed automatically.... read more

gdivelog-0.5 released

Also released gdivelog-sensuspro-plugin-0.4, gdivelog-smarttrak-plugin-0.3 and gdivelog-mdbtools-0.6pre1.

Changes have been made to the plugin interface so please use the plugin versions listed above with gdivelog-0.5.

gdivelog-mdbtools-0.6pre1 is required by the gdivelog-smarttrak-plugin-0.3 rpms. It is installed into /opt/gdivelog-mdbtools so as to avoid conflicts with other versions of mdbtools used by other applications.

Whoops... major bug and a demo logbook.

Discovered that the sites window will crash gdivelog when opened if their are no sites in the logbook. I have fixed this in CVS and will endeavour to create a new release along with some other fixes and enhancements later this week.

I have made a demo logbook available for download on the files page.

Hello and a "What's happening."

Hi All,

gdivelog has had a few downloads now, so I though it was about time I said something.

I installed ubuntu "breezy badger" 5.10 preview this weeked. gdivelog builds fine with gnome 2.12. There are a couple of GTK warnings that occur every now and then, but seem to have no impact. I shall wait until 5.10 is released before getting rid of them.

I also noticed that debian based distributions already have mdbtools. The bad news is that it is buggy. For an example try using mdb-sql. This has stoped gdivelog-smarttrak-plugn from working by crashing gdivelog when you try to import a SmartTrak logbook. I have updated the documentation with the solution of installing mdbtools into /opt/gdivelog-mdbtools. For consistency, all future releases of mdbtools binary packages and binary packages of any plugin which uses mdbtools will install or look for mdbtools in this location.... read more
