I've compiled on debian before, and that is all nice and easy. Dependencies are easily fetched with dpkg. But recently I am forced to use a macintosh laptop, and of course I feel the urge to tinker with it.

So I decided to compile cgminer, but can't get my head around how it works. I run Lion and it already has OpenCL from the box (thanks, Jobs!), but does it have the other dependencies (libcurl4-openssl-dev, libncurses5-dev, pkg-config and optional jansson)? If not, how do I get them? Do I have to compile them as well?

Thanks for any help Smiley

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin Core and some of its derivatives are the only known safe implementations of full nodes. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

I run cgminer on a mac and just use macports to get all of the dependencies (see There are other ways, but that was the easiest for me. Once all of the dependencies are installed, cgminer compiles without an issue.
