Compiling the cvs version using fink

This section applies to Mac OS X 10.4.8 on an iBook G4. You should know the basic commands of the shell (


The dependencies are as usual, so look in "Build from cvs" for what packages you need to install first. Of course, you don't need to install g++ from fink, neither OpenGL (as Apple provides an OpenGL framework).

To find all the packages in fink, you will probably need to enable the unstable tree; see the Fink FAQ on how to do this (or give FinkCommander a try, where it is only a mouse click). You should install the packages named "libgettext3-dev", "libgettext3-shlibs" and "gettext" as well (maybe some combination of these solves the src/Makefile-problem mentioned below, I'll have to check that).

Getting the cvs version

Next, get the cvs version of X-Moto. If that's your first access to that version, you need to do a full checkout:

cvs login
cvs -z3 co -P xmoto

If you're asked for a password, simply hit return.

If you already have got an older cvs version of X-Moto lying on your hard disc, you can simply go into the directory and type

cvs update


cd into the directory "xmoto" and configure it:

sh ./bootstrap
./configure --prefix=/Users/foo/bar --with-apple-opengl-framework --with-enable-www=1 --with-enable-zoom=1 CPPFLAGS="-I/sw/include" LDFLAGS="-L/sw/lib"

where --prefix= is optional and can be omitted if you are sure you want to install xmoto into the root directory. I would suggest using a prefix such as /Users/your_username/xmoto/ in order to be able to remove the whole xmoto tree with one command and to not interfere with Mac OS X files and directories.

The next step is needed on my iBook G4 running Mac OS X 10.4, but maybe it works for you without it. If it does, please append the output of "fink list -i gettext" and "uname -p" to this section.

Hack a Makefile to work around a gettext-related bug

Apparently there is a problem that the configure-script doesn't quite recognize how to link correctly with libgettext, although it claims it does. So, what you have to do is: Open src/Makefile in your favorite text editor, find the line that says

LIBS = -lcurl -lode -llualib -llua -lSDL_mixer -lbz2 -lpng -ljpeg -lz

and append ${LIBINTL} so the updated line looks like

LIBS = -lcurl -lode -llualib -llua -lSDL_mixer -lbz2 -lpng -ljpeg -lz ${LIBINTL}

Save the file.

Make and install

This step is the same as in the MacPorts/Compilation part:

make && make install

This should work flawlessly now. If you get a linker error ("ld error") saying something about "intl" oder "gettext", you probably skipped the src/Makefile editing step.

After this command has finished (it may take some time), you should have a working cvs-version of X-Moto installed and should be able to start it from the shell with <prefix>/bin/xmoto.
