Hi Tom,

Version 3.0.2 was released before Mac OSX 10.5 was released and hence it was never tested on that version. We have since fixed all the errors and the development version should work fine on 10.5.2. We have not fully released that version yet, but you can always check out the latest beta version at:

svn co

The reason that the old version does not work on Leopard is that the way X11 needs to be included on the MAC has changed and hence new make files and small fixes in the code were needed to support the latest version of OSX 10.5.3.

I'm trying to compile the 3.0.2 from source, and I'm getting 50+ compile time
errors. I'm running Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.2, and am trying to install with the
quick method:

mkdir /sci
cd /sci
mv ~/Downloads/SCIRun.3.0.2.tar.gz /sci/
tar -xvzf SCIRun.3.0.2.tar.gz
cd SCIRun

I'm getting a lot of errors like this:

!make[2]: *** No rule to make target `lib/libCore_Persistent.dylib', needed by
`lib/libCore_Geometry.dylib'.  Stop.

Is there something I'm missing?
