The title says it all. If you have successfully run bitcoin headless on Mac OS X please share your experience. Or if you think you know how to pull it off please let us know how to make it happen.

The OS X GUI usually lags behind and even when it's up to date with win/linux it doesn't have the Mac OS feel, and I don't think anyone is interested in making that happen at present. The best option I can see would be to just run it sans GUI.

If someone can figure out how to run it headless on Mac OS X I'll try to figure out how to display the details on the desktop using GeekTool and share it here.

Well, I never ran the binaries headless, but I did run it many times by compiling myself. I don't remember the exact steps in fixing dependencies, but using macports it wasn't hard at all, but I did have to muck around the makefile to get the paths correct.

The following is for r156, but should work pretty much unchanged for current svn head, I think. Just make sure paths are correct for you, and you are using 64bit OSX. If you're on 32bit, change the x86_64 to i386 (untested). Also, build with
Code:
make -f makefile.osx bitcoind
, if you don't specify the target it will try to build bitcoin which is the GUI version.

Very nice. I'll have to give that a try (or ten). I also posted a solution for those that don't want to try to run headless: http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2086

edited to add:
configuration checking script and makefile generator. totes useful!
