Here are some notes about running navit under MacOS. This is a draft, feel free to improve it.
What you will need
It's recommended to use the cvs version instead of release 0.0.1, since we added a few fix for this platform.
You should only need automake, gtk2 and glib2 via macPorts ( http://www.macports.org/ )
MacPorts developers suggest to install Xcode Tools from http://developer.apple.com/tools/xcode/ and not from the Mac OSX install disk.
Make sure you don't have fink installed on your system, it can confuse MacPorts package building and installation.
Something went wrong?
Libtool error :
If you try to compile navit-0.0.1, you might get the following bug (which is fixed in cvs).
/usr/bin/libtool: internal link edit command failed make: *** [libdata_mg.la] Error 1 make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
The fix is in debug.h to replace
extern int debug_level;
This should be fixed now in CVS.
Malloc error :
param.c:3:20: error: malloc.h: No such file or directory param.c: In function 'param_add_string': param.c:10: warning: implicit declaration of function 'malloc' param.c:10: warning: incompatible implicit declaration of built-in function 'malloc'
There is no malloc.h in OS X. All the defs are in stdlib.h. If you want you could make a softlink /usr/local/inlcude/malloc.h to /usr/include/stdlib.h, or just comment the relevants include <malloc.h>
Both will work. The symlink is maybe easier for now.
We'll add a platform-test soon to fix it.
