OSX version requires X11 ??

Must Fix for Release: Yes Platform: OS X

Maybe I missed something, but I didn't think X11 needed to be installed for QGIS to work on Mac. Didn't see anything about it in the README.

I just installed QGIS 0.8prev2 on a MiniMac PPC and when double clicking on the Qgis icon it activates but then nothing happens. (no "Titan" splash screen)

Once I installed X11 on the system it started ok.

Also in the OSX readme file says it will work with GRASS 6.1.x, this should be updated to "GRASS 6.1 or newer" (there are now 6.2.x release and and 6.3-cvs devel branches)

Must Fix for Release: Yes

It appears one of the libraries depends on libSM:

dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/X11R6/lib/libSM.6.dylib

Referenced from: /Users/hobu/Desktop/qgis-0.8.0pre2/ Reason: image not found

We need to determine if X11 is a requirement for QGIS on OS X, otherwise remove the dependency on libSM.

Resolution: fixed

The libgif included with qgis-0.8.0pre2 required X11. It has been rebuilt --without-x for the next release.
