Thanks Eric, 

Unfortunately I ran into the pitfall of attempting to install openmotif form source via http://www.openmotif.org/ . I was able to compile openmotif and install the programs but unfortunately its Makefile and the EPICS/extensions Makefile are incompatible. They seem to expect libraries to be built with different rules and put in different locations. The .h files medm needed where in openmotif-2.3.0/lib not /include and a library file libXm.a appears to never be built with the Makefile from openmotif.org . I get the error: 

No rule to make target `/Users/andrewwagner/OpenMotif/openmotif-2.3.0/lib/libXm.a'

Does anyone have experience installing openmotif from source? There must be a way to do this on a Linux box. For the time being I can just delete openmotif and reinstall from Darwin ports. 

Cheers, 

Andrew

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:
Download  the extensions configuration files from EPICS Extensions Config Files
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:
Download the medm tarball:  MEDM 3.1.4
cd to the <TOP>/src directory and unpack the medm tarball
cd to the <TOP>/src/medm directory and run make

Hey guys,

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.
