Bug report #8492
OSX - GRASS tools not longer available in Plugin menu
|Affected QGIS version:||1.8.0||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Mac OS X||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||fixed|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||No||Copied to github as #:||17256|
System: OSX 10.6.8, QGIS 1.8.0 (with GDAL1.9), GRASS 4.6.3 (with GDAL 1.10).
(Upgraded through clean install from QGIS 1.7.0 and GRASS 4.6.2)
The GRASS tools aren't available anymore in the Plugins > Manage Plugins list.
After loads of working hours I have been able to get Sextante up and running (see http://gis.stackexchange.com/questions/69080/unable-to-load-grass-plugin/69182#69182) as an alternative, but not all GRASS modules are available through Sextante. I'm particular interested in v.in.ogr modules. I prefer to have these modules integrated into QGIS instead of having GRASS running in parallel.

Yes, I do not find it on the downloads archive page either.
I have assigned the issue to William. Hopefully, he can update the page soon. For now, it appears to still be accessible from the old (unpublished) link:

Hi Wiliam, thanks for updating the archive page.
I have a suggestion to change your http://www.kyngchaos.com/software/grass page. On http://www.kyngchaos.com/software/qgis you refer to the optional installation of GRASS 6.4.2 when installing QGIS. However, when you click on the GRASS 6.4.2 link, you are referred to http://www.kyngchaos.com/software/grass, where you can only find GRASS 6.4.3. This is how I ended in my troubles with the QGIS installation (which took me days to find out what was wrong). So, I would suggest to include a link to GRASS 6.4.2 on this page, stating that for QGIS 1.8.0 to be fully functional, one needs GRASS 6.4.2.
