A lot of people have been asking about NX support for MAC OSX v10.11, also known as El Capitan. Unfortunately, NX does not currently certify and support El Capitan due to two major issues uncovered during testing. The good news is there are plans to address those issues and support El Capitan starting in NX 11, and there is a workaround you can use in the meantime if you're running NX 9 or NX 10. Read on for more info.
There are two known issues with installation and deployment of NX v10 on El Capitan. One is the deprecation of support for installation meta-packages; the second is the default enablement of System Integrity Protection (SIP), which prevents the installation of OpenMotif, a requirement to use NX on Mac OSX.
For those of you currently using NX 9 or NX 10 on Mac OSX, we are providing these workarounds and deployment strategies to get NX installed and working on El Capitan. These workarounds are not official and are not supported. In addition, there may be other issues which have not been uncovered that are also not supported.
Hopefully you find this post helpful.
