[00:49:31] <Darrenor64> very nice. would it be possible to somehow integrate the precompiled libxmls into a package that could be hosted on the xu4 site?
[00:50:47] <Darrenor64> notice -- i found a bug in the beta4 version that I will need to finish. it makes the bucs den magic shoppe inaccessible.
[00:52:08] <Dominus> yes, the goal is to have a static version that can be hosted
[02:11:04] <Darrenor64> ok, i've merged the recent set of fixes to beta4. unfortunately this means we'll require new win32 build.
[02:49:10] --- Dominus is now known as Dominus|zzzzzzz
[03:20:31] <Kirben> The actual merges don't seem to have been added, as I'm not getting any new updates from the beta4 tag.
[03:56:29] <Darrenor64> i must have used the merge command incorrectly.
[04:08:13] <Darrenor64> it is now corrected. thanks for checking.
[04:14:02] <Kirben> I uploaded the win32 binary for 1.0beta4.

[08:48:03] <Dominus> last night I couldn't produce a 32bit built for os x, trying again later today...
[09:02:30] <Darrenor64> !log
[09:02:34] <Darrenor64> ?log
[09:02:35] <exultbot> Logs are available at http://log.usecode.org/xu4log.php
[12:40:54] <Dominus> I give up, better someone with more knowledge to try his hands on this. I'm sure I can make a static built for 64bit but nothing else it seems
[12:41:22] <wjp> what goes wrong?
[12:47:54] <Dominus> ppc builts are out of the question it seems, since older sdks than 10.5 aren't supported and the makefile built stuff grows over my head with all the includes and such :)
[12:48:25] <Dominus> the 32bit built actually went quite far and probably needs just another framework included
[12:52:07] <Dominus> ok, so it seems I can make a 32bit built after all :)
[12:52:29] <Dominus> my mucking around with the makefile had some side effect that I fixed
[12:54:44] <Dominus> but it doesn't run _(
[12:55:52] <Dominus> I seem to work better with autoconf stuff instead of just plain makefiles
[12:59:07] <wjp> any error message when it doesn't run?
[12:59:37] <-- Kirben has left IRC ()
[12:59:39] <Dominus> nope, just hangs on the loading screen
[13:12:24] <wjp> hm, annoying :/
[13:19:55] <Darrenor64> Perhaps it's time to move toward automake?
[13:20:42] <Dominus> maybe but I'm surely not the one you should listen to :)
[13:22:18] <Darrenor64> ha. all i know is that the README says, "one day, we gotta do this automake thing"
[13:25:15] <Darrenor64> which libraries are giving you the most grief?
[13:26:51] <Dominus> it's not the libraries themselves but just *stuff* that was bad :)
[13:27:14] <Dominus> and that the makefile.macosx is a mess to work with :)
[13:27:59] <Dominus> hardcoded things...
[13:32:24] <Darrenor64> any stdout/stderr from title screen breakage?
[13:32:55] <Dominus> no, nothing
[13:33:13] <Dominus> I'll tinker some more with it to see what the problem is

[18:32:24] <Darrenordroid> log?
[18:32:38] <wjp> http://log.usecode.org/xu4log.php
[18:47:33] <Dominus> Darrenor64 or Darrenordroid: Revision 2802 broke compile on OS X. You deleted #include <SDL.h> in u4.cpp but without it compile fails with ld: duplicate symbol _main in u4.o and macosx/SDLMain.o
[18:48:14] <Dominus> it may be part of my earlier compile problems, too :)
[19:25:15] <-- Darrenordroid has left IRC (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[22:18:50] <Dominus> ok, after being a bit more clever I got it working now to built for each arch
[22:20:01] <Dominus> need to make it a static compile now and test whether it will work with actual arch machines, especially since I got it only to work by using the 10.6 SDK which could break it for !0.4 machines

[22:20:06] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Kirben
[22:54:55] <Dominus> ppc built does not work on a real ppc machine. because of the SDK :(
[23:04:02] <Dominus> and unfortunately the i386 built doesn't work as well :(
[23:04:36] <Dominus> on a "real" OS X 10.5 (running in a VM)
[23:05:06] <Dominus> also the xu4.icns in svn seems to b corrupted
[23:18:00] <Dominus> ok, fixed i386 built, that one runs
[23:22:37] <Dominus> ok, the ppc built doesn't crash as well now but isn't able to load the ultima.zip in the app bundle for some reason
[23:25:32] <Dominus> "xu4 Error: Error 1001: Unable to load the "charset" data file. Is Ultima IV installed? Visit the xu4...."
[23:27:05] <Dominus> of course it runs perfect in the rosetta emulation in OS X 10.6 :(
