Ok, I've found how to update the database:


Next, there is a discrepancy between the directory.

First, we are told to login to CVS VTK from /Develop. Then to checkout from root. And to run CMake from /Develop/osxBin with:

cmake ../VTK

VTK is not found in ../ from /Develop/osxBin

So I checkout from /Develop. Am I right?

Then, I don't understand well why we make a new CMakeCache.txt file in /Develop/VTK (it does not exist) and insert into it:


though there is a CMakeCache.txt in /Develop/osxBin with the line:


Then, when I try to run TimeRenderer, I get the following error:

error: in /Develop/VTK/Rendering/vtkCarbonRenderWindow.cxx line 758 vtkCarbonRenderWindow (ox3e3cd0): Could not find valid pixel format.

Idem for Mace with a different address (0x4c7bf0).

A window appears with nothing in it. I have to quit the terminal to get access to the window and close it.

And for Tcl, I get the following error after making:

In file included from /Develop/osxBin/Common/vtkCommonTCLInit.cxx:1:
/Develop/VTK/Common/vtkTclUtil.h:24: tcl.h: No such file or directory
make[3]: *** [vtkCommonTCLInit.o] Erreur 1
make[2]: *** [default_target] Erreur 2
make[1]: *** [default_target_Common] Erreur 2
make: *** [default_target] Erreur 2

I run this on a G3, maybe that is the reason why it cannot make?
