    33This page describes a new method for installing GSAS & EXPGUI where a small disk image is downloaded, which  contains a script that loads the latest versions of GSAS and EXPGUI. When GSAS & EXPGUI are loaded in this fashion, a menu item is activated in EXPGUI that allows it to check for updates and install them. Different distributions are available for Macs with Intel processors or with older PPC (G4 & G5) processors.

    5 The software installation is done using a program called subversion (svn), in addition the installation script is run using the Python interpreter. I believe that python can be found on OS X in the default installation from 10.4 on. Subversion comes preloaded on Leopard (10.5) and Snow Leopard systems (10.6). Users of 10.4 should see the note below.

    36 '''Users of 10.4 will need to install subversion''' this can be done with [http://www.finkproject.org/ Fink] or [http://www.macports.org/ MacPorts]. Note that all that is needed is the svn client, should you have a choice in package size. Note this needs to be installed in a place where Python and EXPGUI can find it.

    3737If you have svn and python can't find it for bootstrap.py, edit that file or modify your path. If EXPGUI can find it, set EXPGUI(pathlist) to hold the path to svn (see customization).
