Hi All

I bought a very cheap 2nd hand powerbook on ebay. It has OSX 10.4.11. I am also soon to be purchasing an FFADO supported firewire rack to replace my old M-Audio Delta 1010..

I bought it to run some propietary sysex stuff for some of my hardware but would like to play around with Ardour on it. I would prefer to actually use this for the SVN version and so I don't have to keep swapping from stable (2.7.1) to testing.

Is this possible? (and not a complete pain in the *****)

If so can someone point out where to get jack for mac, SVN and any other dependencies... and any other pointers I need to know..

cheers

Allan

I guess you missed http://ardour.org/building which leads to http://ardour.org/building_osx_native. I cannot stress enough how much work is involved in doing the OS X build. It is a huge amount of work, and the details change from week to week or month to month. I would almost go as far as saying that if you even need to ask the questions you do above, then this goal is probably not a good idea for you. But in the end its up to you, of course.

Thanks Paul

I've been building the linux SVN (CVS) and tarball versions for so long that I didn't even think to go there. My apologies.

Given your response here I will stick to testing on my linux system and put up with the 30 minute build time.

cheers
