thanks for the first comments!
One main problem occurred with Leopard X11.
Leopard ships with the new X11R7 server and its behavior differs from
First the good news, X11 starts automatically if an application needs
it. Thus I removed the code for starting X11 automatically. (For Tiger
you have to do it manually)
Then next issue is Tiger X11 needs the DISPLAY variable, Leopard not –
or better if it's set Leopard X11 crashes. Thus I have to distinguish
between Tiger and Leopard in the source code ;(
Anyway, in principal it works, but Leopard X11 is very buggy yet and
in some cases very slow (try to run fix() with a matrix - the tk
window will be refreshed and refreshed and refreshed and ...).
Fine. The next item is that Rmate on Leopard (Intel) running R devel
gives an error about popen3, i.e it does not run. (?)
Then only thing I can say is that Rmate runs on Leopard (ppc) with the
latest stable R version 2.6.1.
Maybe someone could check this with an intel mac.
(I read in the internet that some tiny Ruby code snippets wasn't
compiled correctly for Leopard. And, R devel on Leopard should be
taken with a pinch of salt yet)
OK. Please go ahead to test the R stuff.
(BTW next week I won't be able to check my mails)
