Installing OR-Tools on Mac OS X Mountain Lion


I have just upgraded my home computer to mountain lion. Here are my findings:

  • Upon update, xcode is no longer accessible.
  • You then need to install xcode 4.4.1 and the august command line tools for xcode.
  • To install java, just run javac, it will start the procedure to download java and install it.
  • autotools and libtool are no longer distributed with xcode. You need to compile them yourself if you want to run make third_party
    • cd into the or-tools directory
    • run ./tools/
    • type export PATH=`pwd`/dependencies/install/bin:$PATH
    • then compile third_party: make third_party
    • You only need to run the first time or after make clean_third_party
