I built an intel version from CVS. Here is the zip file:
http://badaboum.bidibom.free.fr/aMule.zip

My first impressions are:
- it uses a bit more CPU
- it seems to find more Kad peers.

Nice try Matthis, unfortunately as soon as I double click to run it, it closes :-/

I downloaded cryptopp and finally I managed to compile aMule!
If someone needs it this is the link http://rapidshare.com/files/91868382/aMule_CVS_20080214.zip.html
but it's compiled for OSX 10.5 and PPC

I tried to compile a universal binary with the code in the wiki but the result is
Code: [Select]
$ ./configure --disable-systray --disable-gtk --enable-embedded_crypto

Any chance you could compile for 10.4 and above?

Yes but it takes time because I have to recompile wxMac on another machine with 10.4 on it.
Is there anybody who knows how to compile aMule on Leopard so that it's runnable on Tiger too?

Hi everybody,

I had started a topic here ( http://forum.amule.org/index.php?topic=14353.0 ) but wuischke was kind enough to direct me to this topic.  :)

Anyway, I have a running Debian file server with amuled, and I need to control it remotely from two network Macs (one PPC running OS X 10.3.9, and one Intel running OS X 10.4.11).

So I'm desperately seeking for amulegui binaries for both Mac versions (amulegui, not amule). Could someone please provide this ?  ;)

Optionally I could try to use amuleweb, but the last time I tried, I remember a really bad-looking interface (sorry, but it had absolutely nothing to do with the official eMule web interface for example). So if the amuleweb interface has REALLY changed, could someone indicate me where I can download it ?

Thanks in advance for your help & Best regards,

Jose

Edit: I don't know about the Universal Binary, maybe someone else does or I'll try to have a look at it once I get near a cross-compiler. (Or someone gives Phoenix a Mac ;) )
That is the only possible solution for this problem :P

ok, it took some time but here it is, amule cvs 20080218: http://www.sendspace.com/file/hqiibe
to configure i used:
Code: [Select]
./configure --disable-systray --disable-gtk --enable-embedded_crypto
--with-wx-config=../wxMac-2.8.7/build/wx-config --enable-cas --enable-amulecmd
--enable-debug --disable-optimize --enable-wxcas --disable-nls --enable-webserver --enable-amule-gui

i tried to enable the amule-gui but i can't find it in the resulting app. but the included webserver seems to work.

Thanks bongo.

Now can someone tell us why amulegui doesn't seem to be in the resulting app, as bongo says ?  ???

Thank you.

EDIT : bongo, your release doesn't work on my PPC Mac under OS X 10.3.9. The error message says : "You can't open the application 'aMule' because it's either damaged or incomplete".

it can't because it's no universal binary. just for intel. i also tried a universal binary but had similar problems as scalimani.

I've found this release for PPC ( http://forum.amule.org/index.php?topic=14197.0 ). I've downloaded it, and in order to make it work I've tried lots of things. Although I'm a terminal newbie, I've managed to install MacPorts, then installed libpng (which required Xcode 1.5 in order to use the 'make' command - 350 MB download, thank you), then installed libiconv, then... it still doesn't work and I really feel that I won't go any further.

I don't think any Mac OS X user is expected to do all that in order to make an app like aMule work, so I quit>:(  >:(

Right now I'm just expecting a *working* amulegui version, with no complicated operations (double-click on the app, that's all - we're talking OS X here, not command-line UNIX !). Is that too much to ask for in 2008 guys ?...  :-[

This is totally crazy !!!  :o

Jose, there is NO developer with access to a Mac. We just cannot create double-click-the-app packages for you, because we don't have the means to do so.
We have to rely on users to do the testing and on creating the packages. You see, universal binary compilation is broken and this is the only major point delaying the release of aMule 2.2.0 right now.

I mean, we are talking about open source here. All the developers are doing the work in their free time without getting paid. BUT: We are bribable. Buy Phoenix a Mac and he'll do daily builds for Mac OS X and we'll make him responsible for every problem related to the Mac port of aMule.
The cheapest prices I found were R$ 1600 (about 5% more expensive than here in Germany) for a Mac Mini, so it's not something you buy just to get your hobby software project perfectly working on a system you don't own yourself.

---

Technically speaking it is possible to cross-compile for Mac. But setting up a cross-compiler is very hard and time consuming (I did this at home on a i686 machine, when I tried it again on my x86_64 notebook, I failed) and there's still the problem of testing.

I am trying to install Leopard 10.5 on my computer to try to pack aMule.

No promises in a short time... I will see that I do...   :-\

if all goes well is there more needed to get amule-gui then the  --enable-amule-gui in the configure? perhaps i just ignored some hint and so it didn't get built.

hmm, perhaps you really better quit and find your luck elsewhere. i'm also a mac user but i expect nothing from an open source project. i'm happy if there is software i can use and if there are some flaws i try my best to help to fix or i live with them.
there is a working amule for mac os x, in fact there are different versions, universal, intel, ppc. not all are the latest and greatest and probably some functions need some work. so what? did you paid a lot of money? you can pay a bunch for ms office and get crap anyways. here you have to pay nothing but get  a lot of functionality and helping hands.

sorry.  ::)

Jose, there is NO developer with access to a Mac.
Yes, I know that, unfortunately, and I understand. But what about the experienced users ? Isn't there a single user out there who knows how to compile everything correctly ? (I mean "without errors", "without need for the final user to download additional libraries", etc... just double-click, like every Mac app should work).

I mean : if there are REALLY some working Mac versions, like bongo is pretending, then why don't you simply put the links on your home page / downloads section ? Now that would be really cool !  8)

In fact what amazes me is that there  isn't a single link pointing to any working Mac binary on your home page. Why is that ?  ???

My best guess is that currently there ISN'T any really working Mac version (I mean "guaranteed, working on most Macs without hassle"). But don't take me wrong : I understand that this is open source and there is no guarantee. I'm used to open source, so no problem about that. When I wrote "expecting" I should have written "hoping".  ;)

I am trying to install Leopard 10.5 on my computer to try to pack aMule.

No promises in a short time... I will see that I do...   :-\
Yes,, there's now possible to install quite easily Mac OS X (10.3, 10.4 or 10.5) on a PC. I'm sure for a developer it would be no trouble doing it. Thank you.  :)

Re: *REQ* New Universal/Intel Compile

i use a working mac version. for some days a self compiled one, before it was another cvs version i found here in the forum. even before with 10.4 i used the version from http://forum.amule.org/index.php?topic=5051.0 and before that i just used the "old" from http://www.amule.org/
all of them worked for me. i never had to compile it for myself, i just tried it out of curiosity and to see if i get it done. thanks to a lot of  helping hints it was no big problem.
but i just use the normal app and amule-cmd the remote control the speed settings from a daemon.
so what is you exact problem? is it the missing amule-gui or don't you find a version from amule which starts on your mac?

regarding amule-gui perhaps we get some enlightment why it isn't compiled even with the enable-amule-gui. or perhaps it is? is amule-gui a separate app like amule-cmd? or is this just the normal gui you get when you start the amule package on a mac?
