Compiling on OSX Lion fails

Postby bkmpHx » Wed Aug 10, 2011 9:10 pm

Hey all,

I have tried compiling Irrlicht on OSX Lion & haven't managed to get it working yet. Things I've tried:

- Compiling with different compilers (GCC 4.2 and 4.5, as 4.0 does not build on Lion)
- Compiling using Xcode and directly from the command line
- The installation instructions say to use GCC 4.0, I've used 4.5 and fixed a bunch of compiler errors.

By default, the Xcode project built for PPC, and it generated a static lib for PPC fine, but I can't get it building for x86_64.

I know there's not much info here, but has anyone else managed to successfully get Irrlicht compiling on OSX Lion?

Cheers,
beaker

Quick update: Have also compiled using 'make', and after making a couple of tweaks to the source I'm able to get it compiling as far as:

cpp Code: Select all
In file included from COpenGLDriver.h:25,
                 from COpenGLDriver.cpp:5:
COpenGLExtensionHandler.h:33:31: error: CIrrDeviceMacOSX.h: No such file or directory


This is the case with SVN head & the zipped build of 1.7.2.

Another update: I have it working now - it required some Makefile & some tweaks to the source, but I have it compiling on GCC 4.5 on Lion and linking + running with my project.

xcodebuild -sdk macosx10.7 -arch x86_64 worked for me

Cool, sounds like my guess was right then. XCode has command line options. That's exactly what I need. Do you have to call this from the MacOSX folder, or from Irrlicht directory?
