Install Prefix for catalyst on MacOS (5.6.3)


I successfully compiled catalyst (v5.6.3) from a source tree generated through:

python -i Editions/Base/ -i Editions/Enable-Python -o Users/bknaepen/Sources/catalyst

After compiling and typing make install, everything gets installed in /Users/bknaepen//catalyst/build/CMakeFiles/__macos_install

Is there a way to specify a different install directory? I have tried to set CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX in various ways but just cannot achieve it.


That’s an artifact of the macOS .app packaging. I don’t think has been tested on macOS, but turning off the GUI and/or using a UNIX style install (I forget the flag for it) should make that go away.
