Gerber help on mac
Ok. my mission is simple. I want to use Gerbv or something similar to check and panelise my boards for my KrellClone pcb project. I have found a port that runs on the Mac, but I have absloutely no idea how to install it!

Call me thick if you want, but I have just spent about 2 hours reading through various websites, and I have absolutely no idea what those geeks are talking about. It seems to be a case that I have to download about 50MB of files, install this, compile that, run something else, configure the first three things, compile several other things and then configure them, then deal with a program that seems to have no logic about it at all!

I'm watching too.....
Hmm, X11 is easy enough to get running. The one on the Apple site is good:
However, as far a Fink and Fink commander go, I'm in the same boat as you Al:xeye:

Can Eagle read gerber files?

Thanks, for the suggestion P-A, but I'm using Eagle to generate the files, and I would prefer to test them with another programme, just to make sure! :)

If you could import gerber into Eagle I think it's something.

I could also import the files into my RUN.
