Re: [OSX] G4 compiled binary fails on G5

I'm running 10.3.7 on a G5 and only have ncurses.5. However I have had this problem before.

My suspicion is that you have fink installed on your machine and the other person does not. For example, I have fink and my build uses /sw/lib/ncurses. Fink's ncurses is incompatible with the normal one by design. If you look in the Makefile, the CC line will be "gcc -I/sw/include -L/sw/liib" This is very useful for most builds, but not for binary builds.

You should recompile and either run
make CC=gcc
make-package -M,CC=gcc

Looking at the crash log in the console utility shown the following :

        dyld: /Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Emacs version
        mismatch for library: /usr/lib/libncurses.5.dylib (compatibility
        version of user: 6.0.0 greater than library's version: 5.0.0)

I built Emacs on my G4/10.3.7, and Craig has a G5/10.3.7.

Actually that message does not tell me if the problem is on my part. I don't understand the last sentence : it seems that I have the 5.0 version and Craig the 6.0 but in that case i don't understand why it fails. If the application is linked against v.5 library, it should work with a greater
version, shouldn't it ?

Could an OSX familiar give me some clue ? Thank you.
