Colleagues,

Recently, someone described a problem installation NONMEM 7.3 in the new =
version of the Mac operating system (El Capitan). Alison Boeckmann and =
I each installed successfully and Bob Bauer asked me to explain the =
procedure.

1. Install ElCapitan in the usual manner
 
2. Install Xcode
        Open the App store
        Click on "Updates”
        Click on "Xcode Apple Version 7.1"
 
3. Open Xcode — you will probably be asked to authenticate =
(provide a password) — this is critical — if you don=
t do this, NONMEM won’t run.
 
4. Download and install gfortran from
         https://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/GFortranBinaries#MacOS =
<https://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/GFortranBinaries#MacOS>
using their installer (I deleted previous versions from before doing =
this step; the default location is /usr/local/gfortran). Note that =
versions of Fortran installed in previous versions of OS X will probably =
not work.
To confirm that gfortran works, in a terminal window, type:
        gfortran -v
You should receive several lines of text, ending with something like:
        gcc version 5.2.0 (GCC)
 
5. Install NONMEM in the usual manner.
 
This approach has worked for Alison Boeckmann and myself. If anyone =
tries it and fails, please contact me (fisher_at_plessthan.com =
<mailto:fisher_at_plessthan.com>) so that Alison and I can suggest =
additional steps.

##################
Alison uses a different approach to install Fortran 5.2:
        Download and install gcc and gfortran from
                http://hpc.sourceforge.net
        sudo tar -xvf gcc-5.2-bin.tar -C /
        sudo tar -xvf gfortran-5.2-bin.tar -C /

Regardless of the approach that you use to install gfortran, it is =
necessary that the PATH environment variable knows the location of =
gfortran. As noted above, gfortran is usually installed in
        /usr/local/gfortran.
However, it is symbolically linked to
        /usr/local/bin/gfortran
(and /usr/local/bin is almost always in $PATH).
