Hi All,

I just installed sac-101.6a-mac_x86_64.tar.gz on my mac running OS
10.10.1, but when I try to fire it up, I get this error:

[derek@Dereks-MacBook-Pro-3:/usr/local/sac/bin]$ ./sac
dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/X11/lib/libSM.6.dylib
Referenced from: /usr/local/sac/bin/./sac
Reason: image not found
Trace/BPT trap: 5

There is no /usr/X11/lib directory on my computer. Does this mean that
there's no sac binary that yet runs on Yosemite?

Thanks,

Derek

    Even on Mavericks, I had to explicitely install X11 (it didn’t come with anything).

      Thanks Suzan,

      I'm still learning how to use a mac for research, and indeed not having
      X11 was the problem.

      For future reference to other Mac rookies, here's what I did (with help
      from John Nabelek)

      1) Install XQuartz: http://xquartz.macosforge.org/landing/
      2) link usr/X11 to /opt/X11: sudo ln -s /opt/X11 /usr/X11

      Cheers,

      Derek
