    Open Source Software
    hey guys,

    I remember reading a thread on GNUCash (an open source software), am afraid I have no idea which of the many versions to download though and how to 'compile' and run it on OS X (UNIX) any ideas?

    thanks...

    Download whatever version for:
    freeBSD
    Darwin
    or powerppc

    An install is usually;

    cd to folder where source is
    ./configure
    make
    make install (might need to be sudo before this)

    tho some are different. Read the readme and/or the Install file.

    Ok I think i'm way out of my league here... cos although what u said sounds relatively simple, I can't even begin to navigate around Unix using terminal. (no background whatsoever)

    haha guess i'll either have to go learn up Unix or just leave it be...

    I choose the latter.

    Thanks anyway...

    At least now I have a greater appreciation for what goes on behind the scenes in Mac OS X. *grinz*
