Problems with installation on Mac

Hi,
I spoke to Steve Boker at SMEP as I was having problems loading OpenMx on my Mac. The problem seems to stem from the absence of a fortran library, and this was seen as a problem in R installation. Does any one have a solution to this problem?

Can you copy/paste the output

Can you copy/paste the output from running the installation script?

Sounds similar to the problem

We never did conclude this was a permission problem. Perhaps you can try the permissions steps suggest first. (They didn't work for me, but that could be due to user error.)

I took a look at David's

I took a look at David's installation and he is lacking the symlink to libgfortran.2.dylib that should be in /usr/local/lib. I don't know why some people's R installations are missing this link. His permissions were fine.

To fix this problem go to a terminal window and type:

cd /usr/local/lib
sudo ln -s /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/2.9/Resources/lib/libgfortran.2.dylib
