Re: [hatari-devel] Mac build 1.8.0 #2 sanity check request

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]


Sorry all, I'm very busy at this moment. I'm moving, all my mac are currently in carton box.... So, I can't make a PPC build right now.
BUT: the PPC build will no longer include the MacOSX GUI (too hard to maintain for 5 different version of MacOsX).

32 or 64 bits, do not care really...

Just verifying that yes, my builds (the previous 1.8.0 and the updated one) are 32/64 bit OSX intel - targeting OSX 10.5 (Leopard) and up.

Jerome's builds for 1.7.0 were named and then there was an additional readme mentioning that they worked on PPC and 32/64 bit intel from 10.4 and up. I don't have an Xcode version that can build for PPC unfortunately :(

I don't think many users know or care whether they have a 32 bit or 64 bit kernel on their Mac and so (or rather or any other way of noting the new release) would suffice.

(And of course, if Jerome or anyone else wants to have a go at making a build of 1.8.0 for PPC/10.4 and up that would be even better :) I can post the updated linker-fixing version of my build steps)

Looking at the file command output for the Hatari executable, it appears the binary is 32 and 64 bit.
