Hi, I have a brand new 64bit macbook pro with os x 10.6. I am wondering if anyone has successfully installed the bare bones version of ros with a similar setup? Is there any initiative to get a package based installer?

I went through the tutorial for installing and poked around some forums for answers to bugs, but at this point I have been watching macports try and build atlas for about 2 hours.

Is there a non-macports based installation for os x 10.6? I am curious if anyone has even got it running/has a personal walk through on the setup.

You probably just have to wait the atlas package out. It took the better part of an evening to get everything installed on 10.6.

I just installed diamondback from source on my MacBook Pro (10.6.7) following the installation instructions.

It worked fine for me. I've built the ros, ros_comm, and ros_tutorials stacks, as well as some others. Depending on how much of MacPorts you have installed, it can take quite a long time to build the system dependencies (e.g., at some point you might be building gcc4.4). You just have to wait it out.

I'm working on writing up a detailed process for 10.6 as soon as we get it running. I'll post the link as soon as I get it up! In the mean time, I haven't come up with a good way to do it without macports. Some things like atlas and gcc44 are huge and took us a long time to get built. Just let it run
