Building GST on a Mac (some notes)

Tagged:  •    •    •    •  

The mac build instructions found at http://smalltalk.gnu.org/wiki/building-gst-guides doesn't quite reflect my experience. They're not wrong, they're just not what I did (and keep doing, because I forget to write this stuff down). Of course, I'm using stow, and a PPC mac, which changes things a bit.

I installed the latest versions of

  • autoconf
  • automake
  • gawk
  • GNU libtool
  • GNU readline
  • git (not the GNU Interactive Tools, but the Version Control System.)

Smalltalk, Seaside, and Evangelism

Randall Schwartz gave a presentation on Seaside at SCALE 8x.

He made an offhand comment about not knowing how to install GNU Smalltalk.

Several of my friends were quite impressed with the demonstration; maybe not so much with Seaside, but with the language itself. Some of them muttered "Why haven't I looked at Smalltalk before?"

Randall used Squeak, but several of my friends know that I tend to prefer GNU Smalltalk. I'm a command-line junkie, after all, and Squeak doesn't play so nice there. Today one of 'em used macports in an attempt to install GST, and it failed miserably.
