Installation/Mac OS/Snow Leopard
This guide still needs to be rewritten for the new installation guides form
These instructions are for Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard), and will need quite a few corrections for the "bottles" the latest brew downloads on 10.8 Mountain Lion.
Install Homebrew and then come back here.
To install build tools, you need to download and install Xcode. It's a large download; it also comes on your OS X DVD.
To install MySQL, run the following:
brew install mysql
Set it up to run as your user:
unset TMPDIR sudo mysql_install_db --verbose --user=`whoami` --basedir="$(brew --prefix mysql)" --datadir=/usr/local/var/mysql --tmpdir=/tmp
Add it to launchctl so it will start automatically:
mkdir -p ~/Library/LaunchAgents cp /usr/local/Cellar/mysql/5.6.15/homebrew.mxcl.mysql.plist ~/Library/LaunchAgents/ launchctl load -w ~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.mysql.plist
Now mysql is running, and you have a user named root with no password.
To install ImageMagick, run the following:
brew install imagemagick
To install Git, run the following:
brew install git
To install Redis, run the following:
brew install redis
RubyGems comes preinstalled. However, you might need to update it for use with the latest Bundler. To update RubyGems, run
sudo gem update --system
To install Bundler, run the following:
sudo gem install bundler
Congrats! You have all your dependencies installed. Go back to Notes On Installing and Running Diaspora.
