So, now some interim report about me trying to compile lyx on 10.6.
To sum up, I think I messed things up with QT. First, I didn't find QT 4.3.3 on the QT/Nokia page, the links to the "archives" there aim to quite empty ftp-servers with QT3-versions on it. So I downloaded the actual QT4.5.2 for Mac binary installer and installed it. That was not a good thing to do. Later I found the QT4.3.3 source-package by googling around. I haven't installed this yet. I tried to compile the lyx 1.6branch which I got via svn (nice thing: 10.6 has svn already included now) following the instructions of the INSTALLMACOSX file. Well, configuring always fails as it cannot find the qt-directory. I looked up where the 4.5.2 binary installs files: Qt Designer, Qt Linguist: /Developer/Applications/Qt Qt Documentation: /Developer/Documentation/Qt Qt Examples: /Developer/Examples/Qt Qt Plugins: /Developer/Applications/Qt/Plugins Qt Frameworks: /Library/Frameworks Qt Libraries: /usr/lib qmake, moc, uic, etc.: /Developer/Tools/Qt (symlink to /usr/bin, so they are really there) Uninstall script: /Developer/Tools/uninstall-qt.py I tried it with /usr/bin and /Developer/Tools/QT as Qt-path-option of the configure command: Same result qt directory not found. So I thought about going one step back by removing 4.5.2 first and then compile 4.3.3, but: The uninstall.py script runs fine and exits without error, but it didn't remove anything. As this does not work, I think I have to figure out every single file that the binary installer placed onto my harddrive. How nice that it installs to /usr/lib and /usr/bin by default! *grml* I stopped here and didn't do anything, before making all that mess bigger
