All I wanted to do was run a cool little Windows app called autostitch on my Mac. According to the site, it runs fine under Wine. “OK,” I think to myself, “I’ve been meaning to install Darwine for a while.” So I get and install Darwine, and it complains that X11.app isn’t installed.
Should be pretty easy to fix, no? Guess again. There’s a HUGE documentation problem/gap here. Watch the video to see how I went from wanting to run Darwine to unintentionally reinstalling OS X on my Mac mini. *sigh*
The (sort of) good news is that an hour and half later, my Mac is back up, and all of my apps and files are right where I left them. I have to install about 500MB of updates via Software Update, but it could have been a whole lot worse.
Oh, and X11.app still isn’t installed. And I still can’t run Darwine or autostitch.
Hey, Apple – want some freedback? Watch this video, and update your documentation! 😛
