Hey dude, I have found that the packages which are posted are not the most up to date. If you want to have a build of PNet which makes use of System.Windows.Forms / GDI+ (via X11) you should begin by getting all files from CVS. Open a Mac terminal and issue the following two commands (no password):

cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/dotgnu-pnet login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/dotgnu-pnet co .

(Note, if you are lazy like me, just copy these lines from

Once you do this, you will find a directory structure on your machine. You need to build the following (in order):


To do so, 'cd' to the directory (via the terminal) and type the following sequence of commands for each:

make install

(you may have to run make and make install as super user, so use 'sudo make' or 'sudo install' if you get errors).

Once you compile each of these, you will have all of the PNet tools installed and ready to use. To test, just do a hello world program and type:

cscc myFile.cs
ilrun a.out

(you can change the name of the output file with the -o flag of cscc).

Now, one final pain in the butt is that you may need to download the newest version of libtool and place a copy of it in the treecc, pnet and pnetlib directories BEFORE you build. (Just to a search on google for libtool, and you should figure out where to go).

Sooo, I hope this helped you out! If you need any other assistance, feel free to write me back.

Take care,

Andrew Troelsen

I have just come across the dotgnu project and am fascinated by your accomplishments – especially the one where you’ve managed to get some .net apps working on Mac OSX.  Could some kind soul out there help me get this working on my own iMac?  Or even just point me to installation instructions.


I downloaded the Mac OSX packages but have no clue what to do with them.


Thanks for your help,
