When you get FlightGear up and running on your Mac OSX
system please post a good install/compile HOWTO on the
web. I'm also a Mac OSX user and tried several months
ago to compile the latest FG release, but ran in to
numerous problems and never have found the time to sit
down and try again.
I'd like to do some development work on FG with
regards to building a good thermal model for soaring
enthusists, but my other option besides my G4 laptop
is the 550 Mhz PIII with Win2000 and that's a pain for
a variety of other reasons.
