OS : El Capitan (10.11)

Postby cormullion » Sat Aug 01, 2015 8:42 am

I understand that the next version of OS X won't allow users to install anything into /usr/bin/. Is this going to affect newLISP installations?

(I may have missed any discussion of this - sorry!)

The installer and configure script will use /usr/local/bin, which will be writable by the user in OSX 10.11. The configure-alt script already uses that directory. Changes are also completely compatible with older versions of OSX, as /usr/local/ always existed and always has been used by third party software.

Cool, I'll delete and re-install newLISP just before El Capitan is released. I understand ElCap will delete any non-system files from /usr/bin during its installation, but newLISP should be safe once installed in/usr/local. I will have to update a few files (those in which I didn't use "#!/usr/bin/env newlisp"...

Return to newLISP and the O.S.
