[sword-devel] Mac OS X/Darwin port
Mon, 29 Oct 2001 23:31:32 +1100
Hmmm, well, I have 10.1 running here, and have just installed the
macGimp package (www.macgimp.org for the 189Mb d/l, or .com if you want
to order it on cd), and was wondering what extra things need to be
installed/compiled in order to get gnomesword running? true, a native
frontend would be much better (hey, I love gnomesword, but I'd rather
not have to run X to use it, cause, well, it's not as pretty as Aqua!),
and so if you want some help at some stage let me know, so I can start
learning the strange version of C that they use for OS X... :) or at
least so I can look into this wxwindows thing... :)
thanks for that wchar fix thingo... will give it another go hopefully
tomorrow, when I shall (again hopefully) have some spare time!
-- oh, I'm asking dumb questions, I know, but I figure I can ask here,
rather than wait about a week before I next have some free time to play
with it all (spent my last 'computer free time' getting gimp up and
running, which I thought would be required before trying to get a gnome
program -- gnomesword, running (for it's other packages that they both
require))... :) and this way my time can perhaps/hopefully be more
efficiently used! :)
