PlatformOSx86-OSX-Tiger (10.4OS Version
Summary0001611: where are the binaries to install GraphViz on my MAC?!
Description



I downloaded the version 2.22.X and it can not be installed on
my Mac OS X Tiger.



Then I downloaded the version 2.18 and it can't be installed...
too!



I need GraphViz working with Protege for, let's say, yesterday
and I can't do it.



Please, send me the link for an "installable" version.



Thanks,
Hugo Tavares.
Additional Information

Bug 1653 laments that there are no Graphviz binaries for Mac OS X Tiger. You should advise the reporter that the binaries provided on www.graphviz.org require Mac OS X Leopard or newer. You should recommend the reporter use MacPorts to install Graphviz; this works fine on Tiger (and Leopard). If the reporter has any questions about how to do this, we would be happy to answer them on the macports-users mailing list.

Or if the reporter has packaging expertise on Tiger, then he/she could help by fixing our Tiger builds.

I gave up trying to backport from Glen's packaging code. Apparently Apple completely changed the packaging mechanism between Tiger and Leopard.
[erg] The people who create the binaries available at www.graphviz.org only handle Mac OS X Leopard or newer.
Locally, we apparently can build on Tiger but we are unable to create Mac packages for Tiger. If you can give us
a hand on this, please let us know. Alternatively, you'll need to build from the source package. You can use MacPorts
to get the necessary additional libraries. Once that is down, the build is usually straightforward. If you have any
questions about how to do this, the people on the macports-users mailing list would be glad to answer them.

If the issue with the binaries is only the packaging into an installer package and disk image, that shouldn't be difficult. I'm not familiar with how that's now done on Leopard, but I am familiar with how it's done on Tiger and earlier. The old Tiger method should work on Leopard as well. I'm not sure why Apple changed things.

You can not only use MacPorts to install Graphviz's dependencies; you can install Graphviz with it too. Works great. Install MacPorts, then

sudo port install graphviz

or if you want the latest development version instead of the latest stable version,

sudo port install graphviz-devel

Then, if you want a GUI,

sudo port install graphviz-oldgui

(The new GUI only works on Leopard and later.)

The installation files for older versions - that, I know, lots of
people are using by now - should be online.
