Mac OS X:Build from source:MacPorts
Installing Gramps using MacPorts
Current version available from MacPorts is: 4.2.0
- Download and install the latest Xcode tools from http://developer.apple.com/technology/Xcode.html
- Download and install Macports from http://www.macports.org/install.php
- Open Terminal.app from /Applications/Utilities and enter these commands:
sudo port selfupdate sudo port install gramps
If you are running a recent version of OS X (Snow Leopard, or later, at this point), much of the support software is pre-compiled and will install as quickly as it is downloaded.
If you have been using Version 3 of Gramps and are not ready to upgrade, the most recent version available is 3.49. You can install it with:
sudo port install gramps3
that gramps3 will be retired at some point in the not too distant future.
Use Terminal to start gramps:
You may wish to install Graphviz to handle some of the graphical reports that Gramps can produce. MacPorts can provide you with either graphical or command-line based versions of either a 'stable' or 'development' release of Graphviz. 'graphviz-gui' is recommended unless you know that you have a need for the development version. Install with:
sudo port install graphviz-gui
You can search the MacPorts bug tracker for any issues related to the Gramps port:
