  1. I am attempting for the first time ever to develope on mac.. I have experience in Windows and Linux and also using cmake GUI on windows and console on Linux.. I was starting to use CMAKE to build SFML 2.0 and ran into a little problem: The C compiler identification is Clang 4.1.0 The CXX compiler identification is Clang 4.1.0 Check for working C compiler using: Xcode Check for working C compiler using: Xcode -- works Detecting C compiler ABI info Detecting C compiler ABI info - done Check for working CXX compiler using: Xcode Check for working CXX compiler using: Xcode -- works Detecting CXX compiler ABI info Detecting CXX compiler ABI info - done Found OpenGL: /System/Library/Frameworks/OpenGL.framework Found Freetype: /usr/X11R6/lib/libfreetype.dylib (found version "2.4.4") Found GLEW: /Users/falconmick/Documents/SFML2 src/extlibs/libs-osx/lib/libGLEW.a Found JPEG: /Users/falconmick/Documents/SFML2 src/extlibs/libs-osx/lib/libjpeg.a CMake Error at /Applications/CMake 2.8-10.app/Contents/share/cmake-2.8/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:97 (message): Could NOT find ZLIB (missing: ZLIB_INCLUDE_DIR) Call Stack (most recent call first): /Applications/CMake 2.8-10.app/Contents/share/cmake-2.8/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:291 (_FPHSA_FAILURE_MESSAGE) /Applications/CMake 2.8-10.app/Contents/share/cmake-2.8/Modules/FindZLIB.cmake:85 (FIND_PACKAGE_HANDLE_STANDARD_ARGS) src/SFML/Graphics/CMakeLists.txt:85 (find_package) CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND. Please set them or make sure they are set and tested correctly in the CMake files: OPENGL_INCLUDE_DIR (ADVANCED) used as include directory in directory /Users/falconmick/Documents/SFML2 src/src/SFML/Window Configuring incomplete, errors occurred! Which pretty much means, it can't find zlib... Usually I would just go guns blazing and try to fix this myself, but, zlib doesn't have an installer, you manually compile and install it yourself, AND this is the first time for me using a mac pretty much ever (except for helping my sister out on her laptop) so I'm a little bit weary of trying to smash the mac till it works.. has anyone ever had this problem or understand how to fix? I just don't want to do something wrong and blow my mac up also, how would I fix the OPENGL_INCLUDE_DIR problem

    completely lost (windows 7)

    I know you get probably get allot of posts like this, so I am sorry, but I did look, both google and through skimming the first few pages of posts, and couldn't find a valid solution. I really, really, really suck with anything other than Windows ... the guide here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=259068 seams as if it is written to be done on linix (I saw from the sudo command (thanks xkcd for giving me a slight knowledge in another OS) and I don't think I would be able to use it. and also this: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showforum=226 I think is intended for linix... It mightn't be... I don't know.. I am really sorry for probably adding to the pile of posts which are useless, so maybe if a mod see's this and can link me to a solved question which relates to complete nonWin noobies and message me, then delete posts so I don't waist everyone's time :\ Anyways, thanks guys, I hope that I can soon contribute back into this forum. edit: pretty much, how can I setup using windows from a dumb**s's pov edit2: I've even looked through youtube... but all I can find is update videos'... oh, for a back story of why a Windoholic wants a mac OS... I am trying to develope iphone apps
