Hi Markus

Thank you for the email. I tried that and I got the same error messages. May I ask what version of Mac OS X you compiled FreeRADIUS?

Best regards,

i did a successful compile (at least without perl and sql modules as i  
did not have the development files installed) about a month ago. its  

./configure --enable-develper
sudo make install

then i had a working freeradius server!

this too is mentioned in the wiki.
