Re: Re: OS X build


i have recompiled kicad with macosX (1.4) without any compilation problem, using make -f makefile.macosx.

You MUST wxWidgets version wxMAC-2.6.2 ou wxWidget-2.6.3rc1
(does not compile with oldiers versions)

I have used the build command:
./configure --enable-unicode=yes --enable-shared=no --enable-monolithic --with-opengl --disable-universal --disable-compat24 --with-libpng=builtin --with-libjpeg=builtin --with-libtiff=builtin --with-zlib=builtin --with-regex=builtin

opengl (or mesa) must exists.

Binaries works, but the 2 problems are not solved:

- eeschema and pcbnew do not display the menu (but kicad and cvpcb do..), but if I launch the print dialog and the print preview, the menu appears... - the most annoying problem is the curious behaviour of the XOR and the XNOR mode for drawings (mode used for display moving objects). XOR mode is used to draw a moving object with a black background, and XNOR for a white background. 2 succesive redraws in XNOR mode for the same object must restore the original background.
This works well under wxGTK or wxMSW, and does not work under wxMAC.

- Other problem (solved in the next release, coming soon): navigation in notepad dialogs (used in component edition) is not possible, and we can't reach all the pages.
