linux installation on OS X

I am attempting an installation of the OpenClinica 2.0 Linux distribution on OSX 10.4.8 and have been trying to follow the directions in the INSTALL-Linux.txt document. I believe I have much of the install on OSX completed (hopefully correctly) however, there are portions -- particularly for PostgreSQL 8.1.4 -- over which I am uncertain how to proceed, e.g., the references to the /etc/init.d directory... is this the same as OSX's /etc/mach_init.d directory? Likewise, I have questions regarding installing a daemon for both Tomcat and PostgreSQL.
Is there anyone who has done a an installation of OpenClinica on OSX, and if so, would you be willing to provide me some direction? If so, would you be willing for me to call you?
Thank you.

    I'm not a MAC expert but I think it's safe to say that /etc/mach_init.d has the same functionality as /etc/init.d on Unix and linux boxes. I found a site that will help you install tomcat on an apple:
    http://developer.apple.com/internet/java/tomcat1.html
    and here's the site for postgresql
    http://developer.apple.com/internet/opensource/postgres.html
    I was installing OC 2.0.beta today on a linux box and found an install bug that will stop you for a day or so.
    the latest tomcat is 5.5-28 (which should work) while the documentation says 5.5-17.
    After you've installed postgresql you'll be asked to run scripts in /var/OpenClinica-2.0/database/PostgreSQL/2.0/...
    unfortunately the 2.0 directory doesn't exist on the 2.0-beta download (there is a 1.1 but that's not what you want). Akaza knows about it and I'm sure they'll post another beta tarball in a day or so. They are heavily into the QA process right now.

    Does new version 2.0 support database DB2 as OC addressed in last
    version document? I can't find it in the document of version 2.0.
    Thanks,

  • Steve,
    With regards to the tomcat distributions: I believe it is 5.0.28 (the latest 5.0.x stable release) and 5.5.17 (actually 5.5.20 is now latest stable release). I found these downloads at:
    http://tomcat.apache.org/download-55.cgi
