Mac Intel builds

Hi there,

Yesterday I got a nice build of blender for windows from graphicall with all the nice features that are there at the moment. The problem is, that I have an intelmac at home and I was wondering, why there are so few current builds for this architecture. Are there some serious problems or is there no demand?

I tried to build blender at home, but I failed in doing so, because of some failure in ftgl (or something like this).

I am not asking for someone to do it, I am just wondering but it would also be nice, if someone can point me to the right direction.


I’ve been using the builds posted on BlenderBuilds ( ). I think the reason for the lack of Intel Mac builds is that there just aren’t that many users who have them. I’ve got an Intel iMac, but am clueless when it comes to building on my own.

eh I am building them but every time i post linkink seems to be off and not working

I am trying to create a server for hosting nightly builds. I’m looking for someone who has the following, and would let me ssh into their mac each night to build blender:

ssh (secure shell)
DSL or higher connection
500+MB HDD space

If you have any of these please let me know. I’d love to make more additions to my repository of nightly blender builds.

here is my today intel build…

Wow, this is cool, thank you.

Can someone tell me where the big problemareas are when it comes to compiling on intelmacs?
