Is it possible to pull the latest Kstars for OSX from GitHub? I've been looking for it, but can't seem to get it to clone into Xcode for some reason.

Thank you and to Jamie Smith! Those are some awesome scripts, having a Xcode project standing by. :)

So this is not the place to talk about issues with the script etc I guess (is there a better place?). I have a very stupid QT problem in that $rpath seems to be pointing to a wrong location. I managed to compile Kstars yesterday, then I uninstalled everything because I wanted better directory locations of the project, now it always crashes because it can't find the necessary libraries. I tried setting the DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH in XCode and that worked for one binary, but then another fails with the same error.

Do you perhaps know where the wrong path can be found, it should be in a more general place somewhere as reinstalling everything doesn't work.

So it looks like it had to do with homebrew binaries that had this path hardcoded into them, I think. Uninstalling Homebrew and letting the script reinstall everything again worked.

Yep we worked on that for almost 6 months until we got it working right. The main ones were Stephane, Jamie, and myself, but we had a lot of help.

The reason you cant really just use github is because in order to work properly on osx, a lot more needs to be installed than just kstars and a lot of files need to be downloaded from different sources and copied into the right places in order to work. However, if you run the script on the cmake version, you will have a verson that you can just use github to update and edit.

Note that currently the xcode version is NOT working due to a strange error after it finishes. There is also currently a problem with installing kwallet on os x which makes the cmake version harder to install. The kde folks are working on that I believe.

Yes I noticed I can use Github with the project and it works a treat, just not when compiling it straight from Xcode, but you explanation makes total sense in that regard. Thanks for all the effort!

supernov,

Are you planning on editing any code in OS X for KStars, or is your goal just to get the most recent code? If you are interested in coding or tracking down and noting and/or fixing bugs that should be addressed, that could be very helpful particularly if you have the cmake version of the KStars build installed on your computer and can open it in QT Creator to edit things.

thanks,

Rob
