First of all if you don't have a compelling reason to install Radiance from
source I wouldn't do it. Greg provides binaries for OS X which work just
fine and don't require you to fiddle with compilers.
Dear Radiance experts,
I can't install radiance 4 correctly on a Macbook Pro (OS X 10.6.7):
I downloaded Radiance 4 from:
I unzip the file as a folder "ray".
I use the following command to install:
sudo mkdir /usr/local/lib
sudo mkdir /usr/local/lib/ray
sudo ./makeall install clean
You should also create a folder "/usr/local/bin" for the binaries if you go
with the defaults. That's where the script would try to copy the binaries to
after the build.
However, I got the following errors during installation:
RADIANCE 4.0 INSTALLATION
This script rebuilds all of the Radiance programs and installs
them on your system. You should read the file README before running
this script. You can type ^C (followed by return) at any time to abort.
You must first answer the following questions.
What is your preferred editor [vi]?
Where do you want the executables [/usr/local/bin]?
If you wanted a non-standard path for your installation you can specify it
here. I. e. you could use a folder in your home directory.
Where do you want the library files [/usr/local/lib/ray]?
Install library files now [n]? y
Copying library files to /usr/local/lib/ray... Done.
New rmake command -- running "makeall clean"...
In directory common...
make: Command not found.
As John wrote you're missing the developer tools from the Xcode bundle. You
can install these from the CD or download from Apple.
/usr/local/bin/rmake: line 2: exec: make: not found
There were some errors.
It seems no Radiance commands are installed in /usr/local/lib, and I have
to use sudo cp * /usr/bin to manually copy the precompiled Radiance
executables (downloaded from
http://radsite.lbl.gov/radiance/dist/rad4R0_macosx.tar.gz) into /usr/bin.
You can keep the Radiance tools in "/usr/bin" but it seems a bit messy to
mix them up with all the OS X system binaries. I prefer to use
