Tux Paint build for Mac OS X 10.2.8?

People are still out there running Mac OS X 10.2.8, and the last
version of Tux Paint that supported 10.2.8 was from about 4.5 years ago
(Tux Paint 0.9.14).

Is there ANYONE out there who could build the latest Tux Paint for
the older version of OS X? (There are plenty of features and options
that you can disable, which is what we do on older RedHat and Fedora CORE,
on older Windows (95/98/ME), and on BeOS, among other place.)

Thanks in advance! (Feel free to pass this call-for-help along to any
other Mac developers or Mac dev. groups.)

(PS - I’d also love a Mac OS 9 version too! Hey, SDL works on OS 9, why not
Tux Paint?! It’s only been 6+ years! :^P )–

Xcode 2.5 can be installed in Leopard, and can build for 10.2.8, so if you
can build for Mac OS X at all, I don’t see why you can’t build for 10.2.8.
That’s how I build Aleph One.

hi,

I guess tiger can also build for 10.2.8?

pygame.org would also be interested in knowing how to build for 10.2.8

So any tips would be much appreciated :slight_smile:

It sure can

I just followed this guide:

Take a look at any of the SDL framework projects for examples.

Thanks Gregory. Here’s something that Martin Fuhrer, who currently
maintains Tux Paint for OS X, pointed out in response to this thread
over on the tuxpaint-devel mailing list:

Yes, installing XCode 2.5 and the OS X 10.2.8 SDK on Leopard should be
no problem. The actual problem lies elsewhere: when I twice tried to
build Tux Paint for OS X 10.2.8 a few years ago, using XCode 2.x and
the OS X 10.2.8 SDK, I always ran into strange link errors due to
duplicate symbols in the OS X 10.2.8 libraries and elsewhere in the
Tux Paint dependencies (libintl I think, but my memory is hazy…).
In the end I gave up in frustration. I can always give it another
try, but I’m not convinced that the duplicate symbols will have put
aside their differences and made friends in these intervening years :wink:

So I guess I was off in my understanding in precisely what the issue
was. :^P

But hey, since we’re talking, if anyone wants to try giving Martin a hand
doing this, and navigating the library issues, I’d love the help!On Sat, Jul 19, 2008 at 12:24:49AM -0400, Gregory Smith wrote:
