[mac os X 10.3.7][beta4] cannot start the game

Postby Bart » Sun Dec 19, 2004 11:25 pm

i have downloaded the beta and i cant launch the game...
when i click on the game , the icon just appears and disappears in my dock.

Crash log:
Link (dyld) error:

dyld: /Users/*****/Desktop/Darwinia.app/Contents/MacOS/Darwinia can't open library: @executable_path/../Frameworks/SDL.framework/Versions/A/SDL (No such file or directory, errno = 2)


P.S.:i'm not sure to post on the right forum so i apologize if i made a mistake...

You may need to be a little more descriptive than that...

It should probably go in the mac bugs forum, and that's as descriptive as it will get Darksun. That is the contents of the crashlog, and it's saying a library is missing.

Yes, same goes for me on a 2 x 1,8 Mac G5 running X.3.7:

dyld: /Users/uli/Desktop/Darwinia-1.app/Contents/MacOS/Darwinia can't open library: @executable_path/../Frameworks/SDL.framework/Versions/A/SDL (No such file or directory, errno = 2)

Confirmed

I can confirm this bug. My console log shows the following:

dyld: /Applications/games/Darwinia.app/Contents/MacOS/Darwinia can't open library: @executable_path/../Frameworks/SDL.framework/Versions/A/SDL (No such file or directory, errno = 2)

No blackbox.txt file is generated. I examined the Darwinia.app package and found the Contents/Frameworks/SDL.framework folder to be empty.

Looks like a simple build error.

I then downloaded the OSX SDL runtime library from libsdl.org, and duplicated it into the Contents/Frameworks directory, and the game launched without issue.

Looks like I forgot to include SDL this time. You can work around this by downloading SDL from http://www.libsdl.org/release/SDL-1.2.8.pkg.tar.gz
Will fix in next release.
