Trouble compiling R10B-7 on OS X

Hello,

I've been experimenting with Erlang on and off for the past couple of years under various flavors of Windows, never reaching a high level of expertise. Soon after buying my first Mac (an iMac G5 running OS X v10.4.2), I recently decided to delve more deeply into Erlang. However, I haven't had much success in getting it to run...

On Windows machines I took advantage of the binary downloads, but this is my first attempt at compiling the source code. Perhaps this isn't a good first project with my Mac, but I tried anyway. I installed the Xcode software, downloaded the R10B-7 source code, followed the instructions in the README file and typed "make". The compilation process seemed to go fine until I saw the following:

"=== Leaving application debugger

erl -pa ../ebin -s gs_make -s erlang halt -noshell

{"Kernel pid terminated",application_controller,shutdown}

Crash dump was written to: erl_crash.dump
Kernel pid terminated (application_controller) (shutdown)"

Here are the first 20 lines of the resulting erl_crash.dump file:

I pored over the Erlang Questions mailing list looking for previous problems with OS X and saw a suggestion to download the latest gcc version from the Apple website. I installed "Xcode Tools 2.2 Developer Preview 1", but this didn't seem to help.

Can anyone suggest a solution to this problem? Thanks in advance for your help.


Regards,

Mark
