Intel Mac OS X

Administrative privileges are NOT needed to install the Intel Mac OS X binary distribution of Open3DQSAR.

As far as we know, Intel Macs should come with 64-bit CPUs (Core2, Xeon, Core i#) endowed with SSE3 instruction sets or better; however, just in case, 32-bit binaries and older instruction sets are supported as well. If you wish to determine the most appropriate version for your system, download choose_version (a small utility based on Dave Jones' x86info), open a terminal and type:

$ chmod +x choose_version
$ ./choose_version

Then, download to your preferred location (e.g., your home directory) the .bin installer matching your system. Run the latter by issuing the following commands:

$ chmod +x your_open3dqsar_version_setup.bin
$ ./your_open3dqsar_version_setup.bin

Inside the open3dtools folder you will find a bin folder, which contains the open3dqsar executable.
Instead, in the open3dqsar folder you will find a README file, the license, the ChangeLog, documentation, some examples and utilities.

Open3DQSAR depends on OpenBabel for file format conversions and atom type assignment.

Unless you already have the latest version of openbabel_for_open3dtools installed on your system, you will want to download also the openbabel_for_open3dtools_macosx_setup.bin installer which includes all necessary dependencies for Open3DQSAR, and install it in the same place where you previously installed Open3DQSAR. Should you at a later stage decide to download and install another tool of ours which has the same dependency from OpenBabel, such as Open3DALIGN or Open3DGRID, just install it in the same folder where you previously installed Open3DQSAR and openbabel_for_open3dtools, and everything will work out of the box as long as you keep the original arrangement of the directory tree.

The open3dqsar executables have been on built on Leopard 10.7.1 with GCC 4.5 provided by the MacPorts team and linked with the BLAS and LAPACK libraries included in the Apple Accelerate Framework.
