Mac users may have noticed that the gretl snapshots for OS X are
not refreshed as often as the Windows snapshot. That's because
I'm able to build, package and publish the Windows snapshot from
my Linux laptop at Wake Forest University, with a fast internet
connection, while up till now I have had to make the Mac builds at
home, using borrowed CPU cycles on my wife's iMac, and uploading
via a relatively slow DSL connection.
But I have now set up a linux-to-OS X cross-compiler on my machine
at work: if this works OK I'll be able to keep the Mac snapshots
up to date with ease.
There are test files at
(gretl-intel.dmg.gz and gretl-ppc.dmg.gz -- please note the .gz
I'm not able to produce Apple-type compressed disk images -- which
I think requires the use of closed-source Apple tools. So I have
just gzipped the dmg files.
If anyone is able to test these, that would be very helpful. The
gretl-intel image works fine on OS X 10.4.11, but it would be nice
to know if it works right on more recent OS X. And if anyone
still runs on ppc, ditto for that image.
