    I am trying to get Grace via Fink (*big mistake* the most horrible compile-nightmare).

    So I followed someone's stupid recommendation of deleting X11 and restoring it after compile. Of course, the new macbook doesn't come with an install CD. So I'm screwed.

    Suffice to say, I have corrupted my libraries:

    Now the new XCode doesn't include X11.

    XQuartz is ****, it doesn't replace X11.

    Essentially I am left unable to get X11 working.

    I am desperate.

    When I try compiling Grace with Fink I get a motif error due to library issues:

    X11 is not part of Xcode - never has been afaik.

    You can download XQuartz from here.

    Also, you should go get a USB drive to use as a time machine backup for the next time you have a brain fart.

    One other thing, and this may spark a debate, but I dropped fink in favor of macports. I've had better luck with it.

    On another note, is there a way of using Grace with XQuartz,

    or is there a way of solving the library inconsistencies, as Grace refuses to load. ????

    I have a fresh new install of 10.8 and needed to get macports installed on it anyway. So I decided to try out grace - had never heard of it, but looks like it will be very useful. Anyway, it did install and runs fine under xquartz. Here are all the decencies:

    $ sudo port install grace
