- GBrowse on Mac OS X
These scripts simplify the installation of GBrowse on Mac OS X.
- 1. The CPANPLUS module
This module automates the installation of a variety of Perl modules.
- 2. December 2002 (or greater) Developer Tools
- 3. root access
If you do not, you may still install GBrowse and its dependencies in non-standard paths. See the documentation below on "Installing GBrowse in non-standard paths".
The Fink package manager is *not* required; instead, all packages are built from source.
- 1. Build the libraries and dependencies of GBrowse
% make libraries
- 2. Build GBrowse proper
% make gbrowse
See the full documentation for installing and using GBrowse on Mac OS X in
For additional information and configuration options, try
% perldoc scripts/build-libraries.pl % perldoc scripts/build-gbrowse.pl
Due to inconsistent naming and distribution of dependencies, these scripts rely on a Perl package (BuildConfig.pm) that stores the versions and URLs of dependencies known to work with GBrowse. If you wish to use a newer version of a library, simply edit the BuildConfig.pm file (and drop me a line concerning your results).
