The openmotif distribution from MacPorts (www.macports.org<http://www.macports.org>) works fine with EDM (x86 32/64 bit universal build) on both Leopard and Snow Leopard.

Unfortunately I ran into the pitfall of attempting to install openmotif form source via http://www.openmotif.org/ . I was able to compile openmotif and install the programs but unfortunately its Makefile and the EPICS/extensions Makefile are incompatible. They seem to expect libraries to be built with different rules and put in different locations. The .h files medm needed where in openmotif-2.3.0/lib not /include and a library file libXm.a appears to never be built with the Makefile from openmotif.org<http://openmotif.org/> . I get the error:
No rule to make target `/Users/andrewwagner/OpenMotif/openmotif-2.3.0/lib/libXm.a'
Does anyone have experience installing openmotif from source? There must be a way to do this on a Linux box. For the time being I can just delete openmotif and reinstall from Darwin ports.

I have the fink openmotif3 2.2.4-4 package installed on my OS X machine. Seems to work well with MEDM, EDM, StripTool and SDDSplot.
MEDM is an extension:
Download the extensions configuration files from EPICS Extensions Config Files<http://www.aps.anl.gov/epics/extensions/configure/index.php>
Unpack the config file tarball.
cd to the extensions directory created by unpacking the tarball. This directory will be referred to as the extensions <TOP> from now on
Edit the configure/RELEASE file top refer to where you have EPICS base installed.
Edit the configure/os/CONFIG_SITE.darwin-x86.darwin-x86 file and set up the correct references to your X11 and Motif packages.
cd to the <TOP> directory and run make
Now to download and build an extension -- medm in this case:
Download the medm tarball: MEDM 3.1.4<http://www.aps.anl.gov/epics/download/extensions/medm3_1_4.tar.gz>
cd to the <TOP>/src directory and unpack the medm tarball
cd to the <TOP>/src/medm directory and run make

I'm new to EPICS and have compiled both EPICS base and Asyn successfully on my OS X 10.6.3 MacBook Pro. It seems that much of the driver support includes pre-made MEDM screens. Is there a good how-to manual for installing MEDM on OS X (or any os)? I've searched tech-talk and there definitely seem to be some pitfalls. For instance Motif 2.30 should be used instead of 2.32 to avoid some odd behavior. Thanks very much for the help.
