I have a 2.5 GB file localxxxxxx.tgz, with xxxxxx indicating the date.
You can get it from afp://gifi.stat.ucla.edu and then
from my Public directory in /software. Or from a WebDAV connection to
http://public.me.com/jdeleeuw/software (it's currently gone from
it will be there again soon).
a. 64-bit version of R-devel (a.k.a R-2.10.0) with about 600 packages.
It supports the
GTK+, tcl/tk, SciViews, etc interfaces.
b. 64-bit version of grass-trunk (a.k.a. GRASS-7.0).
c. Support-libraries and executables, all 64-bit, for ImageMagick,
freetype, GDAL, proj,
gsl, gmp, mpfr, fftw, mysql, pgsql, hadoop, root, heasoft, hdf4/5,
ffmpeg, asymptote, expat, cdd, cfitsio, fontconfig, gc, geos,
geotiff, gd, tiff, jpeg,
png, svg, gettext, harminv, iconv, intl, jags, jasper, las,
pixman, qhull, readline,
sqlite, szip, tcl/tk, udunits, xml2, gtk2, gdk, atk, glib, cairo,
pango, glade, git,
wget, gawk, sed, gs, pkg-config, tramo, seats, x12a, yacas, pvm3
--- probably more.
d. A 64-bit version of gcc, g++, gfortran 4.2.5 with gomp. Everything,
compilers, is compiled with flags "-m64 -O3 -fopenmp -
mtune=native" -- "native" in
this context means "nocona", i.e. Intel Core Duo.
It is updated one or twice per week with recent cvs, svn or git
versions. It installs in
/usr/local. The R is pretty snappy on my machine.
1. This is for CLI junkies. Normal people will stay away from this.
2. The quartz device in R works, but many other things are either GTK
+, tcl/tk, or even
3. This was compiled on OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard). Your Leopard mileage
may vary. No
universal binaries of any sort, of course.
4. Basically it creates a separate 64-bit development environment,
independent of the Apple stuff
(and independently, if you want, of the "normal" and nice R and
GRASS framework-builds and GUIs).
5. This is a large file. After unpacking "du -s /usr/local" says
14167872 (i.e. 14 GB).
6. I am not really supporting this for users outside my department.
That would be unwise.
