|I have the fink openmotif3 2.2.4-4 package installed on my OS X machine. Seems to work well with MEDM, EDM, StripTool and SDDSplot.|
MEDM is an extension:
Unpack the config file tarball.
cd to the extensions directory created by unpacking the tarball. This directory will be referred to as the extensions <TOP> from now on
Edit the configure/RELEASE file top refer to where you have EPICS base installed.
Edit the configure/os/CONFIG_SITE.darwin-x86.darwin-x86 file and set up the correct references to your X11 and Motif packages.
cd to the <TOP> directory and run make
Now to download and build an extension -- medm in this case:
cd to the <TOP>/src directory and unpack the medm tarball
cd to the <TOP>/src/medm directory and run make

I'm new to EPICS and have compiled both EPICS base and Asyn successfully on my OS X 10.6.3 MacBook Pro. It seems that much of the driver support includes pre-made MEDM screens. Is there a good how-to manual for installing MEDM on OS X (or any os)? I've searched tech-talk and there definitely seem to be some pitfalls. For instance Motif 2.30 should be used instead of 2.32 to avoid some odd behavior. Thanks very much for the help.
