Installing on Mac OS X (10.8)

Installing the ARC Graphical Clients on Mac OS X requires MacPorts. When MacPorts has been installed check out the following 2 repositories to your home directory:

$ svn checkout svn:// ./globus-ports
$ svn checkout svn:// ./arc-ports

Next, update add the local repositories to to MacPorts by adding the following lines in the /opt/local/etc/macports/sources.conf before the rsync://rsync.macports… line, as shown below:

file:///Users/[user id]/globus-ports [nosync]
file:///Users/[user id]/arc-ports [nosync]
rsync:// [default]

To make MacPorts aware of the new local repos issue the following commands:

cd globus-ports
cd ../arc-ports

Install the ARC Graphical clients by issuing:

sudo port install arc-gui-clients
