Developing your AOS project on a Macintosh

Mac OS X is a wonderful operating system that many students have on their laptops. It is possible to configure the Mac to become a host for AOS slug development. This web page lists the steps necessary to configure a Mac. The number of steps will seem quite daunting but each one is reasonably simple and you should proceed step by step. It is easier to use recent Macintoshes with AirPort installed.

Warning: the OSXCrossToolBuild script linked below is currently broken due to Apple's idiot compilers and GNU Autotools' idiot configure scripts. Use/hack at your own risk.

Watch this space (and the course notices) for future updates.

In the meantime, if you are developing on a Mac, please email Justin.
