Re: [hatari-devel] Hatari macOS builds - handover need?

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

Hi Thomas,

I'm a noob when it comes to Xcode but I was able to follow similar steps to the Cirrus CI steps in your email and build an executable:

$ mkdir build-release
$ cmake --build .  --config Release -j$(sysctl -n hw.ncpu)

Does the Cirrus CI output any useful jobs that will give us a clue why it failed to create cpudefs.c? As far as I understand it, that should be generated by an earlier part of the build process... right?

(Unfortunately, my build fails because it can't sign my executable - I still have to figure out how to make it sign it with my Apple developer certificate. I also note that the executable that it created it an arm64 binary, not a universal binary, so I still need to figure out how to make a universal binary!)

Troed, I'll be very interested to see your scripts!

I now did some experiment with the Cirrus-CI to use the Monterey-Xcode
environment like this:

    - brew update
    - brew install sdl2 libpng make
    - export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH
    - cmake -G Xcode -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE:STRING="Release"
      || { cat config.log; exit 1; }
    - cmake --build . --verbose --config Release -j$(sysctl -n hw..ncpu)

However, the build is then failing with "Build input file cannot be found:
'.../cirrus-ci-build/src/cpu/cpudefs.c'. Did you forget to declare this file
as an output of a script phase or custom build rule which produces it? (in
target 'gencpu' from project 'Hatari'"

How are Apple users compiling with Xcode from the command line?

Ok, but then the question is how to configure this via CMake
from the command line?

Having some script that is known to be working already would be very
helpful for getting this running in the Cirrus-CI ... Troed, could you
please send me the list of instructions that you are using in your builds?
