Dynamips: Snow Leopard works well.

I have installed Snow Leopard this morning onto my MacBook Pro. I have been running dynamips since then and it works the same way it always has. I have also been able to run GNS3 and haven’t found any problems.

    Hi, thanks for the info, I was a bit concerned that my Snow Leopard install would leave my labs broken.

    i tried to compile dynamips on snow leopard.
    but i have this error :
    make: *** [mips64_jit.o] Error 1
    make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs….
    /var/tmp//ccZu5tBg.s:4890:suffix or operands invalid for `mov’
    make: *** [ppc32_jit.o] Error 1

    can you help me please?

    Well, at this time it seems that the dynamips port is broken on snow leopard.
    -stable and -devel.

      It works on my Mac OS X Snow Leopard. It’s running now.

    Greg, please tell me how you did it.

    I run ‘port selfupdate && port upgrade outdated’ to be sure I’m up to date. After that ‘port install dynamips’ but I got from the compiler an error similar with what huru posted in his post.

    Ok Greg I figure out. I went into the directory where the dynamips was downloaded and in the Makefile I replace x86 with amd64 and I was able to install the port after that. (I also installed libelf port and libpcap).

      You know more than I do. I documented my procedure here
