Steps to build DMG and zip

build wx

  1. If you already have a universal, current wxMac with all patches then you can skip this
  2. download wxMac
  3. apply patches - some may be on list. (as of 2.8.12 there is one patch: wxMacAdditions/wxMac_bug_2_10.5.8_PPC.patch)
  4. configure for universal *against the 10.4 sdk* or ppcs won't be able to run.
  5. You will need xcode 3.x installed, and can do a configure;make;make install as normal, but make sure this is in your configure line: --enable-universal-binary --with-macosx-sdk=/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk --with-macosx-version-min=10.4
  6. If you have XCode 4.x installed along side XCode 3.x, this is okay, but you will need to configure and make with a configure that explicitly specifies the gcc-4.0 in the 3.x XCode directory, because XCode 4 installs gcc-4.0 to /usr/bin, which comes first in your path, so 'CC=gcc-4.0' will fail since it does not have a ppc assembler. Here is my example for an XCode3 directory at /Developer:

CC=/Developer/usr/bin/gcc-4.0 CXX=/Developer/usr/bin/g++-4.0 LD=/Developer/usr/bin/g++-4.0 ../configure --disable-shared --enable-universal_binary --prefix=/Users/admin/wx/wx2.8.12r --enable-static --disable-compat26 --with-expat=builtin --with-zlib=builtin --with-regex=builtin --enable-unicode --disable-dependency-tracking --disable-monolithic --disable-debug --with-macosx-sdk=/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk --with-macosx-version-min=10.4 --enable-release;make;make install

  1. get a clean audacity checkout
  2. open a terminal
  3. cd to the audacity root directory
  4. copy over three shared object plugins ( into the 'plugins' directory in the root svn directory from the previous version of audacity release (these don't have problems so its unlikely you'll have to build them).
  5. make sure you have set up your Release_Static.xcconfig to point to the wxMac install you just made ('WX_PREFIX=/path/to/wxMacx.y.z'), and and that you have 'ARCHS=ppc i386'
  6. I needed to edit scripts/mac_release_build to use the correct xcodebuild, since the default one that is first on your path at /usr/bin/xcodebuild will be the 4.2 one if you have XCode4 as well. (this is done by editing 'xcodebuild -configuration 'Release Static to '/Developer/usr/bin/xcodebuild -configuration 'Release Static. In the future we should make this a parameter for the script if we are going to support PPC.
  7. run ./scripts/mac_release_build (FROM THE ROOT DIRECTORY)
