Anyone tried Darwin Ports on their mini? I recently tried it out to implement a Darwin port of MPICH for a parallel programming project I'm working on. There are a lot of nice ports available there. I'm building my MPICH app on the mini and then testing on a linux cluster. Maybe sometime in the future I'll have the ability to test it out on a mini cluster. Smile

Hi Greg,
yes, sure. Darwinports also work nicely on the Mini, at least the few ones I tried. Compile time can be quite long (specific to the port and its dependencies). One port I tried it did not find (OSXvnc, so I am now using TightVNC with X11 from the developer kit). I did not try MPICH because (so far?) I do not have a use for it Wink

I don't know what OSXvnc you're talking about, but I found it as an application package for OS X. They're up to 1.61 right now. Direct download here.

Hi Susurrus,
I was not very clear with my statement - with Darwinports you find a variety of VNC ports to Mac, one of them called OSXvnc, but when trying to get it via the Darwinport interface, it was not found (maybe I did something wrong). Anyway, the Darwinport of TightVNC I could download and install.
Thanks for the pointer anyway, I suspect I will give it a try following your reference.

OSXvnc is a VNC server. A client VNC app is Chicken of the VNC. Sourceforge Link

Dear Susurrus,
yes, I know that this is a VNC server (just as TightVNC) - and this is exactly what I had needed and had been looking for (and found). I know TightVNC since years...

I had no idea what you did/didn't know. I just wanted to clarify that it's only a VNC server and the client software is different.

Dear Susurrus,
no problem, thanks for your willingness to help, I should just be more verbose with my messages to provide enough background for the reader Smile
Thanks
