    3 GSAS-II has been tested by us (Brian) on Intel (i386) Macs typically running 10.12 to 10.15 (Catalina). GSAS-II does not

The installation process on MacOS 11.0 (Big Sur) [#BigSur see below for more] has been debugged, but little testing of the code has yet been done.

    7 While this is not recommended, GSAS-II can be run on older versions of OS X (even back to 10.6) but you will need to find and install older Python distributions, [wiki:InstallMacHardWay see the "hard way" instructions]. We can't help with this.

    35 There are two problems with running GSAS-II on Macs under Big Sur. These have been resolved in the installer as of 8 Jan 2021. If upgrading from where a previous installation is present, it is possible to update and then run the makeMacApp.py file (or bootstrap.py) to fix things, but reinstalling may be easier.
    36   ''For those who care, the major bug is that due to macOS 11 changes, Python needs an update to find the OpenGL library. See discussion [https://stackoverflow.com/a/64021312/2487653 here]. Eventually Python should catch up. A more minor bug is that the !AppleScript fails with a "Not authorized to send Apple events to Terminal" error. A work around for that appears to be to open and save the script inside the Script Editor. This is now done automatically in the installation process.''

If upgrading MacOS and have a previous installation, it is possible to update by running `bootstrap.py` to get the latest code and to fix permissions on the .app (by running  `makeMacApp.py`), but reinstalling may be easier.
