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.

The current version of this HOWTO applies to Leopard, Snow Leopard and Lion.

You will need a mac with an ethernet port. If you don't have an ethernet port, you can try and get the usb-to-ethernet converter working. Good Luck.
