Gaussian 09 on Mac OS X Systems
The following versions of Gaussian 09 are available for Apple Mac OS X systems:
Gaussian 09M is available for G4/G5-based Mac OS X computers. It is a 32-bit version of Gaussian 09, accordingly limited to 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of disk (regardless of how much memory is available on the system). It is available as a single copy, single CPU version and as a network/cluster parallel version. This version is not supported on Intel-based Mac OS X systems, not even under the Rosetta emulator. Macintosh OS X 10.5.8 is currently tested and supported for this product.
The regular UNIX version of Gaussian 09 supports Intel-based Mac OS X computers, including 64-bit execution and multiprocessor/multicore systems, and it is licensed in the same way as other Linux/UNIX versions (more information here). A network/cluster parallel version is also available. Please see the Linux/UNIX supported platforms page for operating system requirements. Note: There is no longer a limit to the number of processors/cores which can be used during a shared-memory parallel calculation.
- Gaussian 09IM is a single-CPU 32-bit version available as a shrink-wrap licensed product for Intel-based Mac OS X systems. Macintosh OS X 10.6.8, 10.7.1 and 10.8.0 are currently tested and supported for this product.
