My first attempt at installing Hiawatha. Used the 9.2 OS X dmg and no errors during install but get a segmentation fault when I try to start hiawatha. Must be my error but don't know where to start.
Hiawatha version: 9.2
Operating System: os x 10.6

I have no idea what might cause that. Try building the OS X package yourself. Install XCode, unzip the Hiawatha source package and run the extra/make_macosx_package script.

I have xcode 4.2 but cmake wasn't installed. Installed cmake but still having ptoblems installing from source. Will keep trying. In meantime found log file for error on 'sudo /usr/local/sbin/hiawatha' Not to helpful:

Looks to me like something's wrong with your system...

Installing from source is failing because it is picking up the wrong libxml2.dylib. Also couldn't find a couple of other things. I'm on 10.6.8. Has anyone else tried the 9.2 verion with that os?

install finds old libxml2.dylib in /opt/local/lib when it should get the one from /usr/local/lib. How do I force that?

I have no idea...

I installed the dmg on a newer laptop running os x 10.8 and it appears to run fine. I just need to figure out how to stop it. My desktop is 5 years old and has had many different ported from unix software apps installed over the years. I'm sure I have serious $PATH problems. I will still try to build hiawatha from source, but it looks like it will take a while. What are the minimum libraries that hiawatha needs access to at run time?

Installing XCode should be enough to build Hiawatha. Besides general libraries, it also requires libxml2 and libxslt1 at runtime.

Found a tool to show libraries hiawatha tries to load:
otool -L sbin/hiawatha
/usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current version 169.3.0)
/usr/lib/libz.1.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current version 1.2.5)
/usr/local/lib/hiawatha/libpolarssl.2.dylib (compatibility version 2.0.0, current version 1.2.8)
/usr/lib/libxml2.2.dylib (compatibility version 10.0.0, current version 10.8.0)
/usr/lib/libxslt.1.dylib (compatibility version 3.0.0, current version 3.26.0)
