Here are some notes about running navit under Apple Mac OSX.

What you will need

You need Xcode Tools and MacPorts in order to install navit.

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.


You should only need gtk2 and glib2 via macPorts


Untested yet.

Installation instruction

Download Xcode Tools from http://developer.apple.com/tools/xcode/ and install it with X11 SDK

Download and Install MacPorts from http://www.macports.org/, or update your version

 sudo port -d selfupdate

Open up a terminal

make sure your PATH variables has /opt/local/bin and /opt/local/sbin in it:

 echo $PATH 

Install automake, wget, gpsd (if you want gps support), gtk2 and glib2 (for gkt GUI) with

 sudo port install automake wget gpsd gtk2 glib2

(I also needed to install libtool via ports. Additionally I needed to adapt autogen.sh to say glibtool rather than libtool, as MacPorts libtool was installed under that name)

Download navit or checkout it from SVN

  svn co https://navit.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/navit/trunk/navit navit

Edit configure.in and add

 -I/opt/local/include -L/opt/local/lib

to the CFLAGS variable and add

 -I/opt/local/include/gtk-2.0 -L/opt/local/lib

to the GTK2_CFLAGS variable.


 LIBS="$LIBS -lm -rdynamic"


 LIBS="$LIBS -lm"

(on some systems, the "-rdynamic" option ensures that the executable has it's global symbols put into the symbol table. This is already the default behavior on darwin.)

If you want to install navit along the MacPorts packages, you need to use the /opt/local directory as prefix:

 ./autogen.sh && ./configure --prefix=/opt/local



to build NavIt, and

 sudo make install

to install it.

Then, you may edit and adapt your navit.xml file (the jokers of the original file are not supported)

You may replace the <plugins> section of your navit.xml file by

 	<plugin path="/opt/local/lib/navit/binding/libbinding_python.dylib"/>
 	<plugin path="/opt/local/lib/navit/data/libdata_binfile.dylib"/>
 	<plugin path="/opt/local/lib/navit/data/libdata_mg.dylib"/>
 	<plugin path="/opt/local/lib/navit/data/libdata_poi_geodownload.dylib"/>
 	<plugin path="/opt/local/lib/navit/data/libdata_textfile.dylib"/>
 	<plugin path="/opt/local/lib/navit/graphics/libgraphics_gtk_drawing_area.dylib" />
 	<plugin path="/opt/local/lib/navit/graphics/libgraphics_null.dylib" active="no"/>
 	<plugin path="/opt/local/lib/navit/gui/libgui_gtk.dylib" />
 	<plugin path="/opt/local/lib/navit/osd/libosd_core.dylib" />
 	<plugin path="/opt/local/lib/navit/speech/libspeech_cmdline.dylib" />
 	<plugin path="/opt/local/lib/navit/vehicle/libvehicle_demo.dylib" />
 	<plugin path="/opt/local/lib/navit/vehicle/libvehicle_file.dylib" />

and if you want to use the sample maps installed, you may change the maps' path

<mapset enabled="yes">
 	<map type="binfile" enabled="yes" data="/opt/local/share/navit/maps/osm_bbox_11.3,47.9,11.7,48.2.bin"/>

Something went wrong?

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 /opt/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.

 ln -s /usr/include/stdlib.h /opt/local/include/malloc.h

We'll add a platform-test soon to fix it. If you want to add the test, feel free to submit a patch.
