WIP: Jan 19

Filed under: WIP — rslomkow @ 4:54 pm

grumbling days. Builds broken on my desktop, and other people’s, but working fine on the build servers, makes me think it is more gcc-4 vs gcc-3.x issues.

I have been messing around with trying to get the Mac Builds to be able to build Intel (Universal Binaries) I think it is working, but it seems to break support for older version of 10.3 (before 10.3.9) and I have not figured out a solution to fail gracefully on platforms with the wrong version of libc. There must be something I can do in the NextStep world to send a message.

Was working on tracking down the change of the profile directory into a new heirarchy, but that is not doing well, also need to change the User-Agent, simple change but now that we are changing the version number we might as well do that .



  1. february already? there must really be something in the air here…

  2. Why not release two Mac versions – a universal binary and a pre-10.3.9 version?

  3. David, that uses both server / storage / and QA resources, what would be the significant benefit? 10.3.9+ support seems pretty good to me, particularly as it is likely the better part of a year before Flock is ready for the widest audience.
