|I'd like to build a 64-bit gnubg on OS X 10.6.2 Snow Leopard. So I can't use the QuickTime framework, which isn't 64-bit. I've built all the gnubg dependencies as 64-bit, including libcanberra (used MacPorts).|
What modifications to the gnubg source are needed to use libcanberra instead of QuickTime? I modified sound.c in what seemed the obvious ways, but I get no sound at all. Probably missing something easy.
By the way, this came up before, but I don't know what became of it. From Mike Petch, I think:
Okay, I have had caffeine and here is the answer to our question (it was in a
"Quicktime/mov file support is removed due to Carbon QuickTime framework
being 32 bit only. As far as I can gather the only way to fix this without
forcing a 32 bit compile of the library (which would be useless for linking
other 64 bit ports against) would be to re-write the Mac OS specific parts
of the library to use the Cocoa x64 framework equivalents (if possible)."
It makes me wonder if we could build libcanberra with OS/X macports and use
that to play sounds, allowing us to remove all the Apple OS/X specific sound
code. The other option is the check for 64 Bit OS/X and put ifdefs in for
the Cocoa x64 format. Maybe for the time being just turn sound off?
Clearly this is Snow Leopard and x64 related.
