Re: [Gimp-developer] Single build for various OSX versions (Was: [Gimp-user] Open Gimp)

Hi Sven,

It's a complicated process. Due to changes in how threads are handled
between SL and later, if you build on Mountain Lion or Maverick the builds
will not function on SL or earlier. So, to build Gimp such that it
functions on SL and later, I installed Xcode under a separate folder and
then point gcc to that folder and not use Maverick system folders.I also
pass the CFLAG macosx-version-min=10.6

Does this help?

Btw, I test on Snow Leopard and Maverick before releasing. :)

Hi Partha,

I hereby confirm that your build is fine on OS X 10.6.
How did you manage to build GIMP in a manner that it works for
10.6 _and later_?
As far as I know the OS X versions are often incompatible to
each other what makes it hard to get a build for various OS X versions.

Perhaps that's a solution we can use in the upstream sources?
