Installing Gomoku.app on Apple Mac OS X

This file explains how to compile Gomoku.app on Apple Mac OS X.


You need gnustep-make to compile Gomoku.app. Please get a recent stable release of gnustep-make from http://www.gnustep.org.

Download the gnustep-make source code. Start up a unix terminal window. Go in gnustep-make's directory. Type

  ./configure --prefix=/Users/xxx/GNUstep --with-config-file=/Users/xxx/GNUstep/GNUstep.conf --with-layout=gnustep

(replace '/Users/xxx' with your own user directory, eg /Users/nicola is my case)

this will install gnustep-make into /Users/xxx/GNUstep, which makes it really easy to remove it if you want to uninstall it later.

Then, type


and then type

 make install

gnustep-make will be installed into /Users/xxx/GNUstep. Whenever you want to remove your gnustep-make installation, just remove that directory.

To set up your gnustep-make environment ready for compilation, you need to type

  . /Users/xxx/GNUstep/System/Makefiles/GNUstep.sh

in your terminal window. Now you are ready to use gnustep-make in that terminal window to compile Gomoku.app. Please note that every time you open up a new terminal window, you need to type this command again.


Once you have these things, to compile simply type:


That should compile the program and put it into a directory called 'Gomoku.app'. To start the application, double-click on this 'Gomoku.app' folder in your Finder.


To install, just copy your compiled Gomoku.app folder wherever you like.
