h1. Install notes
1^ CHIRP is supported on Windows XP/Vista/7/8.
2^ Windows XP users may need to follow the instructions "here":http://chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/wiki/FAQ#I-get-application-configuration-is-incorrect-when-I-try-to-run-CHIRP if you have trouble starting CHIRP.
h2. Mac OS X
3^ MacOS users must install the "KK7DS Python runtime":http://www.d-rats.com/download/OSX_Runtime/KK7DS_Python_Runtime_R10.pkg before the application will execute. This only needs to be installed once.
4^ OS X support is limited to Intel architecture. PowerPC is not supported.
5^ Chirp.app is unsigned. With default security settings, you will need a special procedure to run it: Application Security in 10.9.
More useful tidbits can be found at MacOS Tips.
6^ Most modern distributions should have almost everything required to run chirp. Make sure you have +python-serial+ and +python-libxml2+ packages installed. For more information about using CHIRP under Linux, see the Running Under Linux page
