CCP4 on MacOSX



From v4.2 Mac OSX is be just part of the normal CCP4 build.

configure [....] Darwin

Before proceding I would suggest visits to


You will need:

  1. C complier: from Apple developer centre or on the developer CD which came with the OS
  2. g77 compiler: 2.95.2 for 10.0.x or 10.1.x , fink also has g77 for 10.1 in the source archive
    gcc3 will contain g77, but as yet things are not stable
  3. XFree86: if X is wanted. Binaries are available from osxgnu or from XonX
  4. CCP4: CCP4 distribution
Installation is the same as for any other supported system
  1. unzip and untar the tar file
  2. source ccp4.setup
  3. configure Darwin , add --with-x if the X programs (mosflm, etc) are wanted.
  4. make
  5. make install

CCP4i

fink, and probable gnu-darwin, have tcl and tk. If you have these blt should install with some hacking of the Makefile. Just in case here are

these work.

Note: bltwish works with X, not aqua.

Apple have produced an aqua based tcl/tk (although as of Feb '02 it was not that stable), as yet there is no blt.
