I managed to "make" and "make install" without errors by using


instead of


Should I change this in the doc?

I could not get the "make macosx_bundle" work. I get the following message :

 make: *** No rule to make target `macosx_bundle'.  Stop.

As you can see on the bottom of the page, I have the same Problem. Here is the makefile

 hal:/Users/Shared/stellarium/builds/macosx tbender$ cat CMakeFiles/macosx_bundle.dir/build.make

  1. Rule to build all files generated by this target.

Can you help me?

I was using an older snapshot (svn 2287) so didn't have the make rules for macosx_bundle. Found them now in recent version.

Thanks for these good compilation instructions !

Hello Mina, I am sorry that i was not paying attention, but you seem to have got the right most recent version, and are on your way. I take it you've successfully compiled Stellarium, then? How's it working out? --Nigelkerr 18:36, 10 July 2007 (PDT)

Hi Nigel,

Yes I did it successfully, and it works very correctly. The last rev I built is 2340. As you mentioned it in the TO DO, I had to comment out the MAP_NONBLOCK and MAP_POPULATE code and add manually the icon. Any progress here?

May I change in the doc the point about Freetype2? (see above).

Thanks again for keeping a Mac OS X version in sync with the windows one ;-)

--Mina 00:39, 11 July 2007 (PDT)

Mina, do please by all means add as you see fit, i'm glad your interested! cheers!

--Nigelkerr 13:18, 21 July 2007 (PDT)

I'll do so. Thanks again ;-)

I tried to build the svn version (0.9+) of stellarium and failed with the follwing make goal: /Users/Shared/stellarium/builds/macosx $ make macosx_bundle make[3]: *** No rule to make target `../../install', needed by `CMakeFiles/macosx_bundle'. Stop. make[2]: *** [CMakeFiles/macosx_bundle.dir/all] Error 2 make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/macosx_bundle.dir/rule] Error 2 make: *** [macosx_bundle] Error 2 Have I done anything wrong? Thanks in advance. --Tobias 11:37, 18 10 2007

Hallo Tobias,

the message you're seeing puzzles me a bit; i just downloaded fresh svn and started over from scratch here to see if i could duplicate that error, and i'm not getting it. here are things i'd try:

re-try make install, then follow that with a make macosx_bundle

failing that, try deleting your builds/macosx and start over from making that directory

that's all i have for you at the moment. anything special or odd about your configuration?

cheers, --Nigelkerr 08:27, 21 October 2007 (PDT)

Hi Nigel, I am using macports and have cmake version 2.4-patch 7 installed. Is there a difference to your version?
