aMule doesn't read old config after update
« on: July 19, 2021, 03:50:22 PM »

This problem is already solved, I am just leaving the info for those who might suffer from this.

For some context, after updating to Big Sur I decided to update to 2.3.3. While the 2.3.2 version worked fine, the 2.3.3 version didn't read my configuration file.

The problem stems from aMule now being sandboxed (more info). This means that the files in ~/Library/Application Support/aMule are now in ~/Library/Containers/org.amule.aMule/Data/Library/Application Support/aMule/. Just copy the files from the first place to the second.

Yes. That's it.

This is due to the Apple requirement of the "sandboxing".

Working on a NOT sandboxed version, with "dark mode" support (wxWidgets 3.1.5). Looks promising by now...

Finally!!

A new Universal2 macOS binary is available (look in the official download area).

aMule-2.3.3-wxWidgets-3.1.5-macOS11-Universal2.dmg:

  • wxWidgets 3.1.5 (dark mode support)
  • Not sandboxed (no path access restrictions)
