I just installed release 9.2, with great pleasure on my mac. Not working yet. Here is the error I receive, my OSX is 10.15.4 (19E287) and Xcode 11.5 (11E608c) *Developer Tools:* Version: 11.5 (11E608c) Location: /Applications/Xcode.app Applications: Xcode: 11.5 (16139) Instruments: 11.5 (64535.75) SDKs: iOS: 13.5: (17F65) iOS Simulator: 13.5: (17F65) macOS: 10.15.4: (19E258) 19.0: tvOS: 13.4: (17L255) tvOS Simulator: 13.4: (17L255) watchOS: 6.2: (17T255) watchOS Simulator: 6.2: (17T255) It seems that a library is sought for in a non existing directory: bash-3.2$ ls /Applications/deal.II.app/Contents/Resources/spack/opt/spack/darwin-catalina-x86_64/clang-11.0.3-apple/zlib-1.2.11-rqiqrujgg5aemhk7eqjk3asbaukff ls: /Applications/deal.II.app/Contents/Resources/spack/opt/spack/darwin-catalina-x86_64/clang-11.0.3-apple/zlib-1.2.11-rqiqrujgg5aemhk7eqjk3asbaukff: No such file or directory Let me know if I can be of further help. Thanks! Alberto This is a shell with modules and PATHs set to work with Deal.II. All external libraries and deal.II itself are located in /Applications/deal.II.app/Contents/Resources/spack/ If you want to set up your daily Terminal to work with deal.II, add these lines to your ~/.profile file (the first line turns off this message): export DEAL_II_CONF_SILENT=ON # DEAL_II_USE_LMOD=ON # if you want to use lmod instead of tcl module # DEAL_II_ENABLE_VIEW=ON # if you want to set CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH to a view of . /Applications/deal.II.app/Contents/MacOS/dealii.conf deal.II and all its dependencies were installed using spack, and are available through the spack and module or lmod commands, e.g.: module load dealii The default interactive shell is now zsh. To update your account to use zsh, please run `chsh -s /bin/zsh`.
