How to Setup a CASA Development Mac Using 3rd Party Packages Built With MacPorts

Status: DRAFT

To Do

This procedure has only been tested as root.

  1. If /opt does not already exist, create it.
  2. Get the tar file from TBD.
  3. Unpack the tar.

sudo su - 
cd /opt
gnutar fpvx casa3rdParty-$packageVersion-darwin$darwinVersion.tar.gz

This will unpack the contents of the tar into /opt/local

  1. Copy files from the unpacked tar to working locations.

cp /opt/local/ /opt/local/Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist /Library/LaunchAgents/
cp /opt/local/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.freedesktop.dbus-system.plist /Library/LaunchDaemons/

If you must install CASA 3rd party packages from source, see How to Build CASA 3rd Party Packages On OS X With MacPorts. This is a slow process that may require up to two working days to complete.
