Hi there,

I have just completed the installation of gitweb (git version 1.5.3.1) 
on Mac OSX 10.3 Panther, and I thought that you may be interested in 
including  a note with your distribution, to enable an easier 
experience for others.

Essentially the commands I used were variations on the following.

****** Start installation of gitweb on Mac OSX ******

make    	prefix="/usr/local" \
         	PERL_PATH="/usr/local/ActivePerl-5.8/bin/perl" \
         	all

sudo      make prefix=/usr/local install


make   	PERL_PATH="/usr/local/ActivePerl-5.8/bin/perl" \
         	GITWEB_PROJECTROOT="/Library/WebServer/Documents/gitweb/rep" \
		GITWEB_CSS="/gitweb/res/gitweb.css" \
		GITWEB_LOGO="/gitweb/res/git-logo.png" \
		GITWEB_FAVICON="/gitweb/res/git-favicon.png" \
         	GITWEB_SITENAME="Local Git" \
		bindir=/usr/local/bin \
		gitweb/gitweb.cgi

cp -fv  ./gitweb/gitweb.cgi /Library/WebServer/CGI-Executables/gitweb

cp -fv  	./gitweb/gitweb.css \
         	./gitweb/git-{favicon,logo}.png \
         	/Library/WebServer/Documents/gitweb/res

****** End installation of gitweb on Mac OSX ******

Notes:

Perl_Path was necessary in order to change the shebang line in any perl 
or cgi scripts to use my non-standard
perl interpreter, i.e. different from usr/bin/perl.

The gitweb.cgi script and the configuration file gitweb_configure.perl 
must be placed in a directory under /Library/WebServer/CGI-Executables, 
as this is equivalent to localhost/cgi-bin. In this case I used 
/Library/WebServer/CGI-Executables/gitweb.


The gitweb resources *must* be placed in a folder in 
/Library/WebServer/Documents, not in 
/Library/WebServer/CGI-Executables. In this case I placed the resources 
in  /Library/WebServer/Documents/gitweb/res, and used 
/Library/WebServer/Documents/gitweb/rep, as the project root. The 
absolute url for the project root must be specified.

In order to use symbolic links from a live project to the projectroot 
it was not necessary to make any changes to the Apache configuration 
file, however the files being linked to i.e. the project/.git files 
*must*(it took forever to work this out), be in a publicly accessible 
area, even if you are accessing using a browser under you own username. 
In my case I placed those projects in the Public folder, under my own 
username.

Relevant file permissions must of course be tweaked.

If all goes according to plan repositories are accessible from 
http://localhost/cgi-bin/gitweb/gitweb.cgi



Thank you,

Brían
