Ascend4 install for MAC OS X 10.7. Download here.
Mac ASCEND4 Installer screenshot.
Ascend4 is an interesting project for simulation. It has a development that has managed to harmonize various development platforms like C, Fortran, cpp, perl and python.
They use a Mac OS 10.7, the core features are:
osxs-Mac-Pro:gtk osx$ uname -a Darwin osxs-Mac-Pro.local 11.4.0 Darwin Kernel Version 11.4.0: Mon Apr 9 19:32:15 PDT 2012; root:xnu-1699.26.8~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64
Initial environment variables are:

Configuring Process Installation
Here is how a few extra steps to the explanation given in Porting to Mac.
Update 10.7.x Mac Osx
The default version of the MacBook Air purchased in December 2011 contains a version of the operating system on which you can install Xcode version used for this development. You need to do a system update. Downloading components are about 1.5 Gb
No development has tested the version of MAC OSX 10.8 Lion Mountain.
After updating the Mac OSX 10.7.3, install the Xcode that complement the Mac OSX packages like GCC GIT and LLV among others, should not make a binary copy of a system to the other because corrupts files development.
XCODE version is used for development:
Installing GTK and PyGTK
This installation process is similar to GTK Porting to Mac, the crucial difference to enhance direct Ascden4 packaging is that if you follow the same process source files and PYTGTK GTK installation will be in / Users / YOURUSER / gtk / inst and libraries in / Users / YOURUSER / gtk / inst / lib and when generating installer packages would be needed to place the files in those folders option ige-mac -bundler is not the best because the dependencies have many ramifications and are determined by the binary files and that would mean ruining modify.
So the installer was modified in its variables jhbuild 'HOME' to place PWD and installing the binaries and libraries took place in / opt / gtk, similar to the installation directory of PyGTK.
He has trouble pycairo library to install MAC OSX 10.7 and the problem apparently is reported AND FORMAL no solution but a problem of architecture and has to be solved by hand. This is the [bug].
Being in compiling jhbuild must hand to finish as follows:
$sudo ./waf configure --prefix=/opt/gtk --libdir=/opt/gtk/lib
They should try to modify the file _cache.py architecture eliminating standing on the Mac folder ascend the.
$sudo ./waf build $sudo ./waf install
Failure to correct the problem would have to copy the Mac PyGTK _cairo.so port as a last resort
Installing Numpy, scipy, ipython matplopt and
Inside the folder / opt / gtk
sudo easy_install pip sudo pip install virtualenv sudo pip install virtualenvwrapper sudo pip install numpy sudo pip install -e git+https://github.com/scipy/scipy#egg=scipy-dev sudo pip install -e git+https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib#egg=matplotlib-dev sudo pip install ipython sudo sh python setup.py install import matplotlib
Surely with this installation matploptlib not compile correctly it is best to enter the folder and compile it that way. Previously make.osx must configure the system with version and version of python
$cd /opt/gtk/src/matplopt $sudo make -f make.osx PREFIX=/opt/lib PYVERSION=2.7 fetch deps mpl_install_std
For added security to test with a sample code.
Was installed Scons version 2.20 can be downloaded from [here].
One problem is that installers note several binary dependencies are stored in / usr / local / bin
But can not be used directly as: $ scons. You need to do the following:
ln -s /usr/local/bin/scons /bin/
SWIG has a unit called PCRE or PCRE - Perl Compatible Regular Expressions, can be downloaded from [here] and also in / opt / gtk
The compilation result should look something like this:
./configure make sudo make install ... pcre-8.31 configuration summary: Install prefix .................. : /usr/local C preprocessor .................. : gcc -E C compiler ...................... : gcc C++ preprocessor ................ : g++ -E C++ compiler .................... : g++ Linker .......................... : /usr/llvm-gcc-4.2/libexec/gcc/i686-apple-darwin11/4.2.1/ld C preprocessor flags ............ : C compiler flags ................ : -O2 C++ compiler flags .............. : -O2 Linker flags .................... : Extra libraries ................. : Build 8 bit pcre library ........ : yes Build 16 bit pcre library ....... : no Build C++ library ............... : yes Enable JIT compiling support .... : no Enable UTF-8/16 support ......... : no Unicode properties .............. : no Newline char/sequence ........... : lf \R matches only ANYCRLF ......... : no EBCDIC coding ................... : no Rebuild char tables ............. : no Use stack recursion ............. : yes POSIX mem threshold ............. : 10 Internal link size .............. : 2 Match limit ..................... : 10000000 Match limit recursion ........... : MATCH_LIMIT Build shared libs ............... : yes Build static libs ............... : yes Use JIT in pcregrep ............. : no Buffer size for pcregrep ........ : 20480 Link pcregrep with libz ......... : no Link pcregrep with libbz2 ....... : no Link pcretest with libedit ...... : no Link pcretest with libreadline .. : no
Also make symlink to bin:
osxs-Mac-Pro:swig-2.0.8 osx$ sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/pcre-config /bin/
SWIG is used with gtk and python Ascend. You must download [here] if not compiled SWIG does not generate the graphical environment ascend4.
./configure make sudo make install
osxs-Mac-Pro:Ascend osx$ sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/swig /bin/
Download and install [sundails] for solutions Solvers.
Download ascend4 of:
osxs-Mac-<Pro:Ascend osx$svn co svn://ascend4.org/code/branches/carlos ascend
Use the following command:
osxs-Mac-Pro:Ascend osx$scons --config=force
Alternatively the configuration files and CONOPT IPOPT
scons --config=force INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local/ IPOPT_PREFIX=../lib IPOPT_LIBPATH=../lib IPOPT_CPPPATH=../lib CONOPT_PREFIX=../lib CONOPT_CPPPATH=../Library CONOPT_LIBPATH=../lib CONOPT_PATH=../lib GRAPHVIZ_CPPPATH=../lib GRAPHVIZ_LIBPATH=../lib GRAPHVIZ_LIBS=../lib
It has some posix outputs due to MAC
osxs-Mac-Pro:Ascend osx$ ./pygtk/ascdev models/johnpye/ CREATED ASCENDLIBRARY=/opt/ascend/models CREATED ASCENDSOLVERS=/opt/ascend/solvers/cmslv:/opt/ascend/solvers/conopt:/opt/ascend/solvers/dopri5:/opt/ascend/solvers/ida:/opt/ascend/solvers/ipopt:/opt/ascend/solvers/lrslv:/opt/ascend/solvers/lsode:/opt/ascend/solvers/qrslv CREATED DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/ascend:/opt/ascend/pygtk CREATED PYTHONPATH=/opt/ascend/ascxx Restarting with... export ASCENDLIBRARY=/opt/ascend/models export ASCENDSOLVERS=/opt/ascend/solvers/cmslv:/opt/ascend/solvers/conopt:/opt/ascend/solvers/dopri5:/opt/ascend/solvers/ida:/opt/ascend/solvers/ipopt:/opt/ascend/solvers/lrslv:/opt/ascend/solvers/lsode:/opt/ascend/solvers/qrslv export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/ascend:/opt/ascend/pygtk export PYTHONPATH=/opt/ascend/ascxx PYTHON... ./pygtk/ascdev ascdev: posix_spawn: /opt/ascend/pygtk/ascdev2.7: No such file or directory
The solution is to create a copy of ascdev to the folder ascdev pygtk
osxs-Mac-Pro:Ascend osx$ cp -r pygtk/ascdev pygtk/ascdev2.7 osxs-Mac-Pro:Ascend osx$ ./pygtk/ascdev models/johnpye/
Some screenshot more [here]
ASCEND4.app Installer Creation
To create ASCEND4 compiled files are copied to ascend as follows:
osxs-Mac-Pro:Ascend osx$ mkdir -r ASCEND4.app/Contents/Resources osxs-Mac-Pro:Ascend osx$ cp -r ascend ASCEND4.app/Contents/Resources osxs-Mac-Pro:Ascend osx$ cp -r ascend/mac/Info.plist ASCEND4.app/Contents/ osxs-Mac-Pro:Ascend osx$ cp -r ascend/mac/ascend.icns ASCEND4.app/Contents/Resources osxs-Mac-Pro:Ascend osx$ cd ASCEND4.app/Contents osxs-Mac-Pro:Ascend osx$ ln -s Resources/ascend/ascdev ascend osxs-Mac-Pro:Ascend osx$ ln -s Resources/ascend/ascdev2.7 ascend2.7
Creating PKG and DMG
For creating PackageMaker installer used both tools and DistUtilities MAC environment.
DMG disk creation
First you create a disk is placed ASCEND name with a space of 500 MB when you have closed within the Resource folder and ASCEND4.app
Creation of PKG
ASCEND.app is used to place inside the PKG. The files within the ASCEND.app can see [here]
List of Files dependencies
This [list] Dependency Resources is part of that anger within ASCEND.dmg file
Installers Compiled and tested for no Official installer
These packages are installed directly in the Downloads folder, which is not correct, it is best to also install in / opt / gtk because files are then linked to in the scons and may suffer breakout pass to the installer, not included in the final installer but if sl [ASCEND-t.dmg].
Official Installer for MAC OS X 10.7.x [ASCEND.dmg]
- NOTE The installer create folder /opt/gtk and /opt/Ascend
To install the Ipopt was taken as reference in installer ASCEND [# Ipopt Gentoo].
For tree diagrams GraphViz is installed, it also in / opt / gtk. Use sources [here].
I need scons to compile these files:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 lucialoyola staff 31304 Aug 18 15:18 libcdt.5.dylib -rwxr-xr-x 1 lucialoyola staff 86216 Aug 18 15:16 libcgraph.6.dylib -rwxr-xr-x 1 lucialoyola staff 56100 Aug 18 15:15 libgraph.5.dylib -rwxr-xr-x 1 lucialoyola staff 485020 Aug 18 15:15 libgvc.6.dylib
Package was installed c-unit.
There was no test
NOTE ***: It is expected to make a new installer with these packages.
Among the main problems migrate or make an installer for MAC OSX are:
1. - MAC has not GTK. You must use the jhbuild.
2. - Problems with configuring jhbuild PyGTK installed by default.
3. - Sundails dependencies, pcre, etc..
4. - IPOPT dependencies, when compiling graphviz.
5. - Using Virtual Environments for testing installers.
6. - Differences between using correct python syntax.
7. - The use of non-MAC OSX libraries to include in Ascend4.
8. - The time to compile everything you need to make an installer from a Clean MACOS is 26 hours with a 200kb connection.
- Integrating and packaging facility for MACOSX ASCEND4 in Scons.
- Add events to ASCEND4 MacOSX
- Integrate IPOPT packages, graphviz.
- Bug Fix GraphViz you have a problem in converting whole chain.
- Fix ASCEND IPython console.
- Do not rely on PackageMaker and DiskUtilities
