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

Hi Simone,

Yes, there are incompatibilities if you build on Maverick, it will not run
on a Snow Leopard system as far as I know. I confirmed this when I built on
Mountain Lion and it promptly segfaulted on Snow Leopard.

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_?

if you compile it on a SnowLeopad machine, it will run up to 10.9

The only reason, why I make separate builds on my site, is that my
development system runs Mavericks. So I do a second build on an old (and
slow) MacBook running SnowLeopard.

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.

AFAICS, there are no incompatibilities as long as you compile and install
all needed libraries inside the application bundle.
