Installing OpenMx from Source on OS X 10.9.2
svn checkout --username <yourUserName> "http://openmx.psyc.virginia.edu/svn" OpenMx cd OpenMx cd trunk
To validate the installation, make test can be run - it takes some time to complete.
The above steps have been tested on a newly (Aug 5 2014) purchased OS X 10.9.2 system. For subsequent rebuilds from source the procedure is much easier:
cd OpenMx/trunk svn up make install
A prerequisite for compiling OpenMx on Windows platforms is the Rtools Windows toolset. Download the latest version of Rtools from their website and run the installer. The Rtools installer does not add the R directory to your PATH environment variable. See here for help on setting the path in Windows 2000/XP. See here for help on setting the path in Windows Vista. The default R directory is placed in C:\Program Files\R\R-2.X.X\bin.
TortoiseSVN is a subversion graphical user interface that you may find helpful. Some tips: We recommend checking out the OpenMx repository into a folder that does not contain any spaces in its absolute path. If you receive a permission denied error when running "make install", follow the instructions on the R FAQ for Windows: I don't have permission to write to the R library directory.
In R 2.9.x and earlier, you need Microsoft's HTML Help Workshop in order to create R help files under Windows. After you have installed the software, add C:\Program Files\HTML Help Workshop to your PATH environment variable.
Now follow the instructions for the Unix installation.
OpenMx should compile under any Unix with the GNU C compiler (See above for instructions on installing this if necessary). First you need to get the source.
To install OpenMx, download the source using SVN.
cd ~/Applications/bin/ svn checkout --username <yourUserName> "http://openmx.psyc.virginia.edu/svn" OpenMx
If don't have an account, leave out the --username argument.
tinkerbell:OpenMx tim$ svn update A trunk/docs/source/Factor1.png U trunk/docs/source/FactorModelPath.rst D trunk/models/passing/bivSat3.R
A = Added, U = Updated, D = Deleted
You can also check the status of your working copy
cd ~/Applications/bin/ svn status OpenMx # learn if any changes have been made, including new files
* For a list of recent changes check out the ChangeLog file in the most recent distribution.
Learn more with man svn or a tutorial site.
Equivalently, there is a real-time mirror of the OpenMx subversion trunk located at Gitorius. To retrieve a read-only clone of the trunk, use:
git clone git://gitorious.org/openmx/openmx.git
cd (change directory) to the trunk directory, and make install
cd ~/OpenMx/trunk/ make install
Options for the make process are as follows:
make build # build a binary release of the OpenMx library for export. make install # create the OpenMx library and tries to install it as an R library. make check # create the OpenMx library and runs the R library checker. make html # create the Sphinx documentation in the docs/build/html directory. You will need to have the Sphinx package installed. make pdf # create a pdf file in the build directory of the OpenMx documentation. make clean # clean out the build subdirectory. Sometimes you may need to run "make clean" if you get error messages with the other make build. make test # run all the models in the demo and models/passing subdirectories. The number of errors found will be reported (should be 0).
cd ~/OpenMx/trunk/ svn update
returns /usr/bin/R, and
ls - l /usr/bin/R
returns /usr/bin/R@ -> /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/bin/R it would be necessary to fix this with
sudo unlink /usr/bin/R sudo ln -s /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/bin/R64 /usr/bin/R
Otherwise, you may encounter cryptic messages such as
Error in dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...) : unable to load shared object '/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/2.14/Resources/library/OpenMx/libs/i386/OpenMx.so': dlopen(/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/2.14/Resources/library/OpenMx/libs/i386/OpenMx.so, 6): Symbol not found: _GOMP_parallel_end Referenced from: /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/2.14/Resources/library/OpenMx/libs/i386/OpenMx.so Expected in: dynamic lookup
