Compilation/Installation went OK now, using GDC unstable.

And I see that you have wxD in there already, how nice! :-)
Not sure why it failed to install, will look at that later.

patching file wxd/dsss.conf
patching file wxd/mkwxlibs.d
patching file wxd/wx/libs.d
patching file wxd/wx/wx.d
Tool wxd is not installed.
+ /usr/local/bin/dsss_build -I/usr/local/include/d 
-LIBPATH=/usr/local/lib -LIBPATH=.   -test -uses=temp.uses
Error: dsss_build:No target name supplied.


But it should now be possible to play with Bu[il]d/DSSS
on Mac OS X, will report other quirks on the DSSS forum.

Thanks for the update! I'll integrate dsss.conf with wxD.

OK I must be stupid but I can seem to get dsss working.

I have installed DSSS as instructed by dumping the win .zip file and 
adding it to my path.

What I want to do is get something (I'm using mango to test things) 
downloaded. So I run this:

dsss net install mango

and get a single line of output

Synchronizing...


And I cant find anything that dsss has done. No new file, no mango 
anywhere (and no I don't already have mango) Nada. I'm doing something 
wrong and don't known what.

Where should the files be showing up?
What response should I be getting?
Am I doing anything right?

>_O

This makes precisely zero sense.  I don't know of /any/ way that it can 
produce no output after "Synchronizing..."

If the synchronizing fails, it produces an error.  If the synchronizing 
succeeds, if nothing else it will at LEAST say that it's (trying to) 
build what you specified.  There is no path after synchronization that 
results in no output.

I should mention that it has actually been tested and shown to work on 
Windows (by me) at this point, so this is something of a mystery.


Where should the files be showing up?

<DSSS prefix>/include/d/mango/..., <DSSS prefix>/lib/...


What response should I be getting?
Basically:

Synchronizing...

+ svn co http://blahblah/mango/trunk
...

Patching...
(Patch output)

Installing mango
<compile compile compile>



Am I doing anything right?

As far as I can tell, you're doing EVERYTHING right.  I'm flabbergasted.

That's my fault - I never tried wxd in the net system, just a local 
install.  As it turns out, my dependency tracker goes wonky in special 
sections.  There was a special section in wxd's dsss.conf to make the 
C++ component, so it all came crashing down.

I've (mostly silently) released 0.5, which fixes a few issues, and this 
should be one of them.

Believe it or not I actually managed to reproduce this.  I believe it 
comes down to failed connect, proxy settings, something else strange 
like that.

Just released 0.6, should fix it to at lesat give you some useful output 
when it fails. Please test it.

Thanks.

that sounds very possible. I was using a wireless connection with zero 
bars of signal so who knowns what was up.

I already downloaded it. I'll be trying it it a bit

What does <DSSS prefix> default to? The install dir of DSSS? I didn't 
set it to anything at all (Not on the command line, no editing files, 
nada). How do I set <DSSS prefix> to something other than the default? 
Last time I tried" dsss ... --prefix=blah" I got errors.

The install dir of DSSS itself.  You can use the --prefix option to 
install to a different prefix, but only with the 'install' command.

Also "blah" is a fairly strange prefix ;)

I didn't implement multi-prefix support into the net subset of commands 
because it opens a huge can o' worms: A 'dsss net install' actually does 
several installs (all dependencies), and often ends up depending on 
things already installed, etc, etc, etc, the --prefix options would 
either be complex or very limited.  If you need to fine-tune the prefix 
of things installed from 'dsss net', just use 'dsss net fetch', 'dsss 
build' and 'dsss install --prefix'.  A bit more complicated since it 
doesn't do everything for you, but far more controllable :)

It works, but that is with a good connection. I'll try it at home later.

Actually I'm more interested in something like installing dsss in 
"c:\program files\dsss\" and having everything, by default, going to 
"c:\dmd\src\dsss" without having to tell it that every time.
