I'm ready to really get cooking wirh PD but need the zexy and osc libraries to get moving but can't for the life of me find mac binaries or make the CVS files work. Zexy has a makefile and OSC had just files in a directory. Arrr... Any suggestions?
Thanks so much,
Installing CVS - I don't understand
You don't need to mess with any CVS files to get it to compile, and ideally you should just be able to tye "make", then "make install". Also take a peak in the make file to be sure it is looking in the right directory for the files it needs. particularly 'm_pd.h'
However, I just reinstalled everything on my mac, and upgraded to 10.3, and now I can't get zexy to compile!! so, I'm probably doing something wrong too.
Hi 10,000 and all,
Thanks, Maybe I'm missing sometthing stupid. How do I make the makefile make into someting? Also I'm trying to download the osc library I'm not sure what to download and how to make it work and even how to dowload it peoperly as it doesn't work like an FTP directory. Do I just keep clicking and clicking on each until i get to the dowload link and then "save target". Is there an easier way?
pencilina - CVS isn't difficult, once you get the hang of it. The easiest way is to type commands in a terminal/console window - "cvs checkout" downloads modules from CVS, and "cvs update" synchronises your local copy of the source tree with the one on the CVS server (much quicker than downloading the whole lot again). Brief guide to CVS is here: [url=http://pure-data.sourceforge.net/developer.php
Compiling is a little harder than getting the sources, you need to have a working development environment - compiler, make tools, system headers, etc. Once you have that set up, in a terminal window at the directory containing the "Makefile", type "make" and it will compile, and then "make install" and it will install what you have just compiled.
There are OSX and Windows installers here: http://puredata.info/Members/hans/downloads/installers/
