Thanks for the answer, I am going to try this now. Does this mean that we cannot use the binaries and that NEURON has to be compiled to be installed with OSX ?

Best,

I ended up getting mine to work. I did the following:

-added the same 3 flags mentioned by aaronmil to my bash_profile
-deleted Neuron again and built it from source code
-used the configure option --with-readline=no
-did the following step after "make after_install" to make sure python and neuron could talk to each other:

Code: Select all

cd src/nrnpython
python setup.py install
I did not try the alpha version - I think that is why mine was not working when I tried the first time (before using source code).

Impossible to compile, too many errors generated during the compilation process even if I precisely followed the indications. I will wait for a binary version compatible with Mojave.

Hello :)

Thanks a lot, the last binary version of NEURON I tried this morning works fine with OSX-Mojave

Best Regards,

AG.

Greetings!

Will it be necessary to apply the patch you posted below to the source?
Or will be the --with-readline=no option enough to get rid of the error

Code: Select all

Symbol not found: _rl_event_hook
?

Kind Regards,
SG

If installing from sources, use the configure option --with-readline=no
Also a library I used for the icon launch mechanism has been deprecated out of existence. That can be temporarily worked around by
modifying nrn/src/mac/Makefile.am to comment out a single line. ie.

Code: Select all


diff --git a/src/mac/Makefile.am b/src/mac/Makefile.am
index a612653..241f45a 100755

If you install from a package file, let me know and I can upload to the alpha folder.

stephanmg: that post is more than half a year old. Chances are that the "library deprecated out of existence" issue has been resolved. You could try to confirm that by searching the commits at https://github.com/neuronsimulator/nrn/commits/master, or just get the most recent source code and see what happens when you compile with the --with-readline=no option

Thank you very much.

I'll forward this to my colleagues who try to build it - I presume they still have the old source code and did not update it.

Kind Regards,

mhines, we're still running into this issue.
Providing --with-readline=no makes neuron compile, but it makes bluepyopt crash during tests (and it's difficult to see what exactly happens).
What would be the effect of disabling readline ?
