12.11 and 13.12 on OSX 10.5.8 PPC/Intel
« on: December 31, 2013, 04:53:09 pm »
I undusted recently my old G5 and tried to use 12.11 via Macports, it compiled and installed pretty flawlessly, but same issue as I had long ago, if not started within an .app there is no focus on the app, I couldn't click anything. Unfortunately I couldn't use it, because it wouldn't start up, usually hung with 100% CPU usage, already when only using compiler plugin. I found a possible fix here in the forums for the codecompletion plugin ( http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php?topic=17238.0 ), but I didn't come that far... I also once had a working version of 12.11 (some pre) on an older hdd which crashed, so no idea what this hung already in libcompilerplugin is caused by, unfortunately gdb gave me not much to work with.


Then I noticed release of 13.12 and gave it a try.
This all may or may not depending on old 10.5, but using Macports I am able to use any gcc up to 4.8 without any trouble.
I had to do several modifications in order to make it compile in configure:
-force_load flag was set although the compiler didn't support it (none, up to gcc4.8 )
--no-undefined flag didn't work
-Wno-unused-local-typedefs didn't work on 4.8

When using gcc4.7 or 4.8 the compilation broke due to unresolved dependencies to restGPRx and 2 others like that, unfortunately didn't write them down, sorry. So in the end I used gcc4.3 for the moment.

Then in CallTip.h I had to add #include <string> to make it compile, it broke with some missing type definition for std::string otherwise:
./src/scintilla/src/CallTip.h:20: error: field 'val' has incomplete type
./src/scintilla/src/RESearch.h:46: error: field 'pat' has incomplete type

The old bug with starting from an console and no focus is partially gone, can scroll and click "x" to close the window, but can't confirm (yes/no) the question about layout (perspective) change then. Not vital anymore at least since I learned that I can start it without a problem in an .app.

Major problem is, it won't recognize any plugin now. No matter where I put them, I always get:

Scanning for plugins in /Users/smir/Library/Application Support/codeblocks/share/codeblocks/plugins
Loaded 0 plugins
Scanning for plugins in /Applications/CodeBlocks.app/Contents/Resources/share/codeblocks
Loaded 0 plugins

Not sure yet if it depends on -force_load but for any suggestions how to get more information about how to debug this I am more than grateful.

Other than that I hope that some of my information here may help others. :)

Update:
-force_load flag seems to be an issue of underlying XCode < 3.2 from what I found.

I rebuilt 13.12 now on 10.5.8 intel, same problem that no plugins can be found, so it is no PPC specific problem at least.
The prebuilt binary crashes instantly, so I can't compare, but from the content I noticed that it has .dylib files instead of the .so files I get in my compilation (although this didnt seem to cause problems in 12.11)

Update2:
alright, the extension is the problem. Symlinking the .so to .dylib makes it find and use the plugins. So only question is now, if this is intended behavior that it only digs for dylib and if so why it creates .so instead.

Update3:
It works now flawlessly (including codecompletion plugin) on intel version, but 13.12 still freezes with 100% CPU usage on PPC like 12.11 did. So this problem is the one to debug now.

Here it gets stuck it seems, trying to track down now:

Update, I thought to give it a try, but when I compile against wxWidgets 3.0 I get the following error during startup:

Unfortunately this is "fatal" again for me, since I can't click any of the buttons ^^

Update 5:
disabled splash screen for now, with the result that it starts up now finally, finds the compiler and then leaves me alone with an empty, grey window, doing nothing...
Also tried with latest SVN, same result.

oh mighty beings, gods of codeblocks, give me a hand, as I'm stuck here now and don't prove me by torturing using crappy xcode.
I know I'm an almost extinct creature, trying to use OSX10.5.8 and even worse, PPC, but poor me can't afford a newer machine like this and I will sacrifice some virgin bits and bytes if you do.

That's with wxWidgets3.0, with 2.8.12 it still freezes at startup with full CPU load (gdb result in first post).

Can you run it from terminal and use the --debug-log and -v command line options?
Then post the log?

Now as report for the remaining folks out there like me, bothering with old PPC's:
I got a workaround now by using wxgtk and running 12.11 in X11 from Terminal (xterm). Starting it from OSX directly via .app or terminal causes "Fatal IO error 35 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server" error message. I assume its trying to start the wrong X server and not recently installed xorg.

Not only that it starts up now in maybe 1/4 of the time it needed before, it seems to run without any of the known OSX bugs also, like "Build options" selection is working and CodeCompletion plugin.

I did not try any further with 13.12 with this method for the moment as I am having finally a working instance of CodeBlocks on my G5 and it took me already quite some time to get that far, as you can see.
No idea whats the problem with running it in (Cocoa?) wxWidgets and it also seems to be at least partially due to bugs in OSX PPC version of it, but X11+GTK version of CodeBlocks is obviously worked out way better nevertheless. Maybe shouldn't even bother with this so much and recommend/use X11+GTK version by default for any OSX build, guess this could save a lot of energy and work for the CB development team.

Either way, I now have a very annoying problem and I hope to get an answer here. When starting CB now over X11, it only provides me the build targets I have for Linux and not anymore for Mac- where is this defined, can I override it somehow? It doesn't seem to identify itself anymore as Mac. Didn't find something about it in the docs or wiki.

We check for __WXGTK__ probably, but we need to check if platform::darwin or macos is available...

Some isues have already been fixed (like the missing <string>).

Create an app from wxGTK is doable and I think that it worked for me (except that the icon is bouncing forever – probably a bug in wxWidgets).

If Code::Blocks package from MacPorts could be fixed in any way to better support 10.5, please let me know. I don't have one to test.
