Requirements for some Ports

Posted by sensei on Dec 30 2011 10:27 PM
There are a few things that are required for running some of the Projects here.

First up:
Apple's X11
Because none of the Projects here are written in native mac code, Apple gives you some kind of translation & alternate Window system that is required for something we do here with our Ports.

About X11 for Mac OS X
An implementation of the X Window System that makes it possible to run X11-based applications in Mac OS X. Based on the open source X.org project — the most common implementation of X11 (10.4's was based on XFree86) — X11 for Mac OS X is compatible, fast, and fully integrated with Mac OS X. It includes the full X11R6.6 technology including an X11 window server, Quartz window manager, libraries, and basic utilities such as xterm.

Apple's X11 is installed by default on macs, but if you've reinstalled your System or upgraded from Leopard to Snow Leopard for example, it's likely that you didn't install X11.
Because the X11 option is buried in the optional installs tab during the mac OS installation, a lot of people don't select it during install.
Of course, if you don't like to mess around with code from other Platforms (Linux & Windows) like we do, you'd never need X11 anyways.

Here are Mirrors for X11 if you haven't got the Mac OS Install DVD around:

The CXZ Engines (CXZ Ports only)
CXZ Engines

The CXZ Engines are only required for CXZ Ports and for nothing else.
(What is CXZ and why is it different from other Wrappers?)

Most Wineskin Ports have the Engine built in, but some haven't. The Topic of the Port should clarify this.
For those who are looking for the Wineskin Engines, they are located on doh123's Wineskin Homepage:

So again as a Summary:

CXZ Ports:

CXZ and X11 required

Wineskin Ports:

nothing, you're good to go (RC5, 6 or 7, or 1.0+ based, if its older you need X11 installed)

Cider Ports:

nothing, you're good to go
always the latest Mac OS update required (10.5.8 or 10.6.3), because some Cider Wrappers aren't working with older System versions.

CXS Ports:

X11 required

CX Ports: (*discontinued)

X11 required
*discontinued because CX Ports aren't working with Snow Leopard anymore.

Hey gyus, i'm sorry to inform you that the links stated above are outdated.
You probably already know this, since it seems like the website is currently getting updated -- so just a casual heads-up.
Have a great day, and keep up the great work!
