Hi all,

that is really a big accomplishment, I've never get in touch with a
MAC as a development plattform.

Which source did you take ? Did you build the Arduino package from 
the GIT sources ? This would need "ant" as a build tool.

Could you please do another trial ? Starting from a virgin Arduino
with new crosspack, then unpack the uracoli sources in the 
private sketch folder of the user. Under Linux this is done with 

unzip -o install/uracoli-tst-arduino.zip -d ${HOME}/.arduino/sketchbook/

The RadioFaro / Funkomat should appear the same way. 

The idea is to keep a seperate package (the Arduino community calls it
a third party package). So a update could be done very easily.

B.t.w. are zipfiles simple to handle on a MAC? Which format is the 
native compression format on the Apples ?

Shakespeare would say: Two beer or not two beer that is not a question ;-)

Later on a uracoli build on MAC would be nice to have but for the moment 
we just distribute copied source files in the Arduino package.

That should be worth a post on the avrfreaks list, even if the Mac is FreeBSD

So thanks again a lot, Cheers, Axel
