Here are some notes about running navit under Apple Mac OSX.
WARNING: These instructions are currently unmaintained. Please feel free to submit a PR if you manage to build navit on Mac OSX.¶
What you will need¶
You need Xcode Tools and MacPorts in order to install navit.
Make sure you don’t have fink installed on your system, it can confuse MacPorts package building and installation.
- GTK Gui: You should only need gtk2 and glib2 via macPorts
- SDL Gui: Untested yet.
Download Xcode Tools from http://developer.apple.com/tools/xcode/ and install it with X11 SDK
Download and Install MacPorts from http://www.macports.org/, or update your version
sudo port -d selfupdate
Open up a terminal
make sure your PATH variables has /opt/local/bin and /opt/local/sbin in it:
Install automake, wget, libtool, gpsd (if you want gps support), gtk2 and glib2 (for gkt GUI) with
sudo port install automake wget gpsd gtk2 glib2 libtool
Download navit or checkout it from Git
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:navit-gps/navit.git
You may also need a header file to handle endian issues (for PPC only)
If you want to install navit along the MacPorts packages, you need to use the /opt/local directory as prefix:
./autogen.sh && ./configure --prefix=/opt/local --disable-binding-python
type make to build NavIt, and sudo make install to install it.
Then, you may edit and adapt your navit.xml file. The XML maptype is not supported, however normal Navit binfile works perfectly.
If you want (spoken) directions, get espeak from http://espeak.sourceforge.net, install as advised and use the following snippet in your navit.xml:
<speech type="cmdline" data="speak -vde+f4 '%s'"/>
This will tell speak to use a female (f) german (de) voice.
Download one of the Git sources that don’t contain autogen.sh.
Open X-Code and create a new project. Cocoa will suffice
Add in a new target by clicking the triangle next to “Targets” and selected the location of the navit folder. Delete the previous target.
Delete the default files, and add in the navit files.
In a terminal, go into the navit folder.
./configure --disable-binding-python --disable-sample-map --disable-maptool
xcode can now build the navit
You can also use CMake.
cd navit && cmake -G Xcode .
