Hi,

I was looking for a “simple” source control management system and I found Mercurial.
I download the file “mercurial-3.2.3+20141218-py2.7-macosx10.9.mpkg” but I do not know how to install it.

Any advice will be appreciated.

Best regards,
Richard

Double click on it. This will probably give you a prompt that it is from an unidentified developer.

Then open your system prefs and go to Security and Privacy and click on "Open Anyway". (If the lock is shown locked at the bottom left corner of the prefs pane, you may need to double-click on the lock and enter your system password first.)

On the command line, you use installer.

installer -pkg mercurial-3.2.3+20141218-py2.7-macosx10.9.mpkg -tgt /

Open in new window


You really should install a package manager such as Homebrew or MacPorts to install mecurial so that you may keep it up to date better.

Go to http://brew.sh/
run the installer command
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

Open in new window

brew install mecurial
You update packages with
brew update
