When did you try to install it on OSX? Do you know what sorts of
problems you ran into?
I don't have immediate experience with OSX, and since Seneca hasn't
been active for a while I don't know anyone on the project who has
tried to run it on that platform.
Here are the thoughts I do have off the top of my head:
1) There are people who have claimed to have some issues installing
PostgreSQL on Mac OSX. Many others claim to have had few issues
installing on that platform though. I would recommend compiling from
source if you run into trouble.
2) You would certainly need the GCC and cpan to install.
3) I don't know if the instructions we have rely on any gnu-isms in sed.
4) GNU-isms have been reported in the
tools/prepare-company-database.sh, which means I would presume this
tool (not really required) wouldn't work. Use the web-based setup.pl
So I can't give you a definite answer. However, maybe those pointers
are useful and help you evaluate?
