I've been trying to compile it in my wonderful macmini, but sadly I'm to able to do it...
I've tryed also nekolauncher as mentioned here, but it is a complete mess for me.
So, I'm asking for a big favour... can anyone send me the folder of the openMSX compiled for macosx? I'm not a lazy one, but coding and compiling is not what I'm used to...
My address is or
I would be very thankful.

What are the problems, selios2000? The description on msxgamesbox is very extensive.

About the Launcher, I might not have been too precise... try this again (it's super easy and it should work)
1) Download both 'openMSX 0.52' and 'NekoLauncher openMSX' from
2) Decompress them both (it might already be done automatically)
3) Drag & Drop the 'Share', 'Screenshots', 'Persistent' and 'doc' folders from the 'openMSX 0.52' folder into the Root of the 'NekoLauncher openMSX' folder.
4) Then, right click the 'NekoLauncher openMSX' application and select 'Open packet' (or something like that, in French it is 'Ouvrir le paquet...') ... this should open a new window.
5) Then copy the 'openmsx' file from the 'OpenMSX 0.52' folder into the 'Contents/MacOS' folder
6) Launch NekoLauncher, this should bring up the front-end (if it doesn't, check the Preferences menu). The C-Bios configurations should work. For specific MSX machines, just place the necessary roms into the 'Share' folder.

To bring up the console, press Apple-L

Nice page, but a little weird that for some people resolves to some auto-generated link page.

Anyway, some brief comments:
- next version (and current CVS snapshot) compiles with gcc 4.x indeed Smile
- you can use any lower version of gcc 3.x to compile openMSX 0.5.2 (use 3.3 or 3.4 for better performance, I guess; at least it's better than 3.1 which you mentioned)
- you can skip the ./configure step (it's done automatically); see manual
- you can also put the system roms in /opt/openMSX/share/systemroms; see manual

Thanks for the nice page!

Compilation instructions for openMSX can be found at openMSX's official compilation guide.
For Mac OS X I would suggest following the standalone compilation instructions

Of course you can also grab the latest development builds from my openMSX Daily Builds page.
