Hi there

As of today LHC is only running on Windows and Linux - any chance there'll be an OSX version in the future?

I'd love to stay connected to the project on the offchance I can help but the message "Message from server: platform 'i686-apple-darwin' not found" isn't going to get me very far

Cheers
Dave

I don't want to get your hope up too much... but we are starting to look into this.

Hi, there...

I'm not an expert nor a programmer, but I'm noticing a lot of boinc projects compile successfully their binaries for new Intel Macs ;)

That's not the issue it's down to the Fortran compiler was not available for the Mac and we are looking into this to see can it be resolved. I for one am a Mac user so would like to be able to run it on my computer too.

Eh? I've been running GNU Fortran on my Powerbook for years; GNU compilers for PowerPC and for Intel support both f77 and f90; and there are compilers from the chip manufacturers (IBM and Intel, respectively) that run fine under Mac OSX.

A quick google search of Sixtrack and Fortran reveals
http://lhc-collimation-project.web.cern.ch/lhc-collimation-project/code-tracking.htm

"... FORTRAN language and MUST be compiled using the Lahay Fortran Compiler LF95."


I'm not the LHC Alex. Just a number cruncher like everyone else here.

Exactly Lahey must be used and that doesn't work on Macs whether Classic, Intel or PPC
