Subject Re: [firebird-support] Firebird installation on Mac OS X

Hi Daniel,

Saw your email but got tied up with some work and hadn't had a chance to
reply yet. My apologies.

Just a question, are you certain that the zip file is not damaged in any
form during downloads? OSX uses Stuffit as its compression frameworkand
during the time of OSX 10.2 and early 10.3, there are cases whereby
Stuffit expand certain files incorrectly. I know this sounds weird but
it happened to me before.

Having said that, I think you should read this,
It provides very precise information on how to compile Firebird into CS
and SS from source in OSX.

Hope that helps.
