Does someone know how to install the latest QGIS on a mac os 10.6.8? The dmg package available on http://www.kyngchaos.com/software/qgis does not run on my OS version. I was only able to find a developement version of QGIS from Sept 2013 which is not fully stable. Thanks
1) You can install the master version of QGIS compiled every day by Larry Shaffer (Dakcarto - Snow Leopard version). It is the development version (2.3) and so there may be bugs (reminder: one new version every day). It uses the KyngChaos Frameworks and in the event the supporting frameworks will not install for 10.6, that nightly will be suspended
You can try compiling it yourself using the OSGeo4Mac Homebrew tap.
Install XCode and Homebrew, then:
brew update brew tap homebrew/science brew tap osgeo/osgeo4mac brew info qgis-22 # review the options you want for install, e.g. --with-grass --with-globe brew install qgis-22 [--with-options...]
The install on Mac 10.6.8 using OSGeo4Mac has not been fully tested (will be soon). You may run into issues, specifically if using Apple's older
gcc-4.2 compiler, instead of
Please report any issues you have with formulae from that tap to the OSGeo4Mac tracker. Other formulae issues, from upstream Homebrew taps, should be reported on their respective trackers.
