KMTTG MAC OSX INSTALLATION

SPECIAL thanks to AudioNutz in Tivo Community Forums for these instructions.

1. INSTALL XCODE TOOLS

The Tk module for the Perl GUI will need the X11 environment to be compiled, installed, and executed. Locate your Mac OS X installation DVD, and install the XCode Tools.

2. INSTALL PERL (ONLY IF NEEDED)

Most Macs with “Tiger” (Mac OS X 10.4.x) or “Leopard” (Mac OS X 10.5.x) already have Perl 5.8.x installed, so you can skip to the part below where you install the Tk module.

Kmttg is written in Perl and uses the Tk module for GUI. Perl versions 5.8.x is confirmed to work as long as you have the proper Tk module.

Note that Macintosh ActivePerl version does not include Tk module by default and therefore requires more work to install – see details below.

 

If by some miracle your Macintosh does not have Perl installed:

INSTALLING PERL Tk MODULE USING Terminal and X11

 

BUILD EXAMPLE

cd /System/Library/Perl/lib

tar -zxvpf Tk-804.028.tar.gz

cd Tk-804.028

perl Makefile.PL

make

Now go to your “Utilities” folder on your Hard Drive, and open an X11 window.

In the X11 window, type the following commands :

cd /System/Library/Perl/lib/Tk-804.028

make test

(Stand back and watch this happen)

sudo make install

 

STARTING KMTTG

Simplest way to run:

perl path/kmttg.pl

BUILD AND INSTALL 3rd PARTY TOOLS

Macintosh is exactly the same as Linux instructions that are in kmttg documentation.
