These instructions were tested only on mac intel, with python versions 2.4.3 and 2.5.1

  • Requirements
    • You will need X11 to run CDAT. If you don't have it, install it from your Mac OS X Install Disc
  • Download cdat form the source code repository
  svn checkout http://www-pcmdi.llnl.gov/svn/repository/cdat/trunk cdat 
  • Download this patch (building NetCDF without Fortran support) or if you have fortran compiler installed, download this other patch and uncompress to the cdat folder.
  • Perform the following commands:
 $ unset PYTHONPATH
 $ cd cdat/exsrc
 $ sudo ./install_script /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.4
 $ cd ..
 $ sudo python install.py /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.4
  • Before running vistrails, reset PYTHONPATH variable:
 $ export PYTHONPATH=<path/to/vtk_build>/Wrapping/Python:<path/to/vtk_build>/bin:.

When running vistrails with cdat package, you'll have to run vistrails from an X11 terminal.

Setup your user cdat package, and run vistrails. Warning! this will overwrite any previous startup.py file you have in .vistrails

 $ cd ~/.vistrails
 $ tar xvf <download path>/cdat_package.tar
 $ cd <path to your vistrails download>
 $ python vistrails/rev???/vistrails/vistrails.py <download path>/basic_vt_test.xml
