Re: [Axiom-developer] axiom for Darwin? (BSD in Mac OS)

Thanks for the quick & detailed response.

I cleaned out the axiom directory completely and recharged from the tarfile, then set up the AXIOM and PATH vars as per your note. I ran make with sudo, because it had been fooling around with stuff in /sw/bin. which is where the Fink project puts the fake Linux stuff. I've attached the console output. As you say, it now gets much further. It now blows up in axiom/int/lib/wct.c, complaining 6 times at line 301": error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type".

My C is lousy, but "int/lib/wct.c:299: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast" worried me, and /usr/include/time.h looked to me like struct tm was just fine, thanks. I've also attached said /usr/include/time.h in the hope that it will make sense to someone who knows what's going on.

Feel free to use me as an e-mail-driven compile engine, given that you're without Mac access.

Martin Snelgrove,

Actually you want to try telling it the truth :-)

The top level level Makefile looks at the last portion of the AXIOM
shell variable to try to set up for the target system. You told it
you were using 'linux' but should say 'MACOSX'.
In your case you might want to try:

export AXIOM=`pwd`/mnt/MACOSX
export PATH=$AXIOM/bin:$PATH

Likely this will still fail but much further along.
There are two people on this list, Chuck Miller and Pierre Doucy,
who are also interested in the MAC OSX port.

The SIGCLD issue has to do with the C defined variable called
PLF (in the top level Makefile.pamphlet) which has the value
for a MAC OSX build. MAC OSX is a BSD system and certain
incompatibilities arise.

Please try this, save the console output, and let me (and the
rest of the list) know how it fails. I don't have a MAC so I'm
working blind.

As to the configure script issue I'll add the "Darwin" string
to try to give hints about the AXIOM variable setting.

The configure script really doesn't do anything because there
is no obvious way to set a shell variable from a shell script
and have the change be permanent. So it just gives you advice.
