I have OS X Snow Leopard and I need install make (this exists in Xcode). I don't have the DVD to install though.

On the Xcode page I don't find an old version of Xcode.

How I can get an old version of Xcode?


Xcode 3

The latest Xcode 3.2.6 (with the iOS SDK) is available under this link:


You need to be signed up to the free Apple Developer program in order for this to work, I guess. Note that this version will not be updated anymore. If you run into problems installing it, see this question: Can't Install Xcode on OS X Snow Leopard

A list of all downloads is also available. Just sign into the Apple Developer website and visit the following link:


Here, under "Developer Tools" (in the right sidebar), you'll find older versions of Xcode and additional tools.

  • Note that it's a 4.1GB download. I hope you're not in a hurry. Mar 6 '13 at 10:52

Maybe this one is right for you:

OSX GCC Installer

No need to install bulky Xcode just for make.


Have you tried registering as a Apple Developer for Free, it required you have an Apple ID.

Once you log in there then you will have to look around for Xcode 3.2.6 for SnowLeopard.


All versions of Xcode can be downloaded from https://connect.apple.com; this requires a free (not the $99 Mac or iPhone developer subscription) developer registration at http://developer.apple.com.
