#11193 closed build error (fixed)

2.9.0 release doesn't work with Xcode due to missing file

Reported by: disc Owned by: csomor
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.9.1
Component: old wxOSX/Carbon port Version: 2.9.0
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Patch: yes


Building src/wxWindows.xcodeproj from wxWidgets-2.9.0.tar.bz2 using any supported Xcode results in the following error:

[...]/wxWidgets-2.9.0/src/build/ line 2: [...]/wxWidgets-2.9.0/src/../distrib/mac/pbsetup-sh: No such file or directory

The release doesn't include the root folder "distrib" however the script distrib/mac/pbsetup-sh is needed to (conditionally) copy include/wx/osx/setup0.h to include/wx/osx/setup.h (copying pbsetup-sh over from a branch or trunk solves it).

Note that this particular error occurs with the Xcode IDE only. The command-line xcodebuild doesn't (seem to try to) run the script and instead results in errors related to missing setup.h.

I suggest to include the file in a next release, I would prefer that to having (include/osx/)setup.h in the release (as is done for MSW). Perhaps also rename distrib/mac/ to distrib/osx/ or, because I think the location of pbsetup-sh is somewhat of a misnomer, move the file to e.g. build/script/ or (not yet existing) build/osx/ .

[I took the liberty to set the milestone to 2.9.1, I don't know how near that release is but feel free to change it of course]

thanks for spotting this, another solution would be to copy the content of the script into the project itself

Embedding the script in the project would work as well, assuming there will still be a single project file in the future. Is that the case? (so not for example a separate project file for osx_iphone which would require duplicating the script code)

Regarding project files, as you know 2.9's wxWindows.xcodeproj needs quite some updating because of moving and renaming files. Is it helpful if I (try to) do this? Or will the project files you use yourself (for Cocoa, Carbon, and iPhone) go into SVN at some point? (so far I was thinking wxWindows.xcodeproj would stay and, eventually, only build osx_cocoa)

I wanted to create new clean project files from the scratch, using the 3.1 format as basis and using the xconfig files, but I haven't found the time to do so yet

  • Patch set

If there will be more than one project file as you say I think it's best if the script stays as a standalone file instead of repeating it in each project file (or in the future XCConfig files, but they don't seem to allow for a Run Script anyway).
I'm attaching a patch that adds distrib/mac/ to the release archives.

(In [62104]) make sure build script for copying setup.h doesn't get lost, fixes #11193
