SND-binary-on-OSX

If you don't want to start from scratch or if you want to install an already statically compiled binary version of SND, follow the next steps: (more information about these steps can be found on the previous section)

  1. Install the developer package for OS-X 10.2, 10.3, 10.4, or above on the OS-X CDs.
  2. Install the 'X-window' application on the OS-X CDs or download it if needed.
  3. Download Fink for 10.2, 10.3, 10.4 or above.
  4. fink selfupdate
  5. fink update-all

    Once all this is in place, use fink to install guile-1.6 and its development libraries:

  6. fink install guile16
  7. fink install guile16-dev
  8. Go to your home ``bin'' directory or if you are a super user, go to ``/usr/local/bin'' by:

    
     		  cd $HOME/bin        
    
    or alternatively by

    
     		  cd /usr/local/bin        
    
  9. In this directory now download the SND binary from ccrma-ftp.stanford.edu

    SND binaries are in pub/Lisp/ and should be one of osx-10.2-snd, osx-10.3-snd, osx-10.4-snd, or above, depending on the OS-X version you are running.

  10. Make sure you are on a terminal window and running the tcsh shell. The xterm application on X11 would be a good idea at this point.

  11. Provided that guile was installed on /sw/ which is the Fink standard, type the following command on the terminal:
            setenv GUILE_LOAD_PATH /sw/share/guile/1.6
    

  12. Now on the terminal and on the ``bin'' directory where SND is type the following command in order to make SND an executable application,

    (make sure about the SND version you are running)

    
     		  chmod 777 osx-10.3-snd        
    
  13. You need to run SND under X11 using the ``xterm'' application. Make sure you set your environment ``PATH'' variables so that the bin diretories are on the the binary path. To run SND just type:

    (Again, make make sure about your SND version)

    
     		  ./osx-10.3-snd        
    
    or if they are on the binary path,

    
     		   osx-10.3-snd
