Compile ECWolf on Mac OS X
This guide will demonstrate how to compile the Mercurial version of ECWolf on Mac OS X.
The following programs/libraries are used by ECWolf. The versions listed below are known to work, however other versions may work.
- CMake 2.6
- GCC 4.4.1
- libsdl 1.2
- SDL_mixer for ECWolf (Standard SDL_mixer 1.2 will also work, but features will be disabled.)
In addition to the above, the following are optional dependencies.
Mercurial is also needed to checkout a copy of the latest source.
Retrieving the Source
Use Mercurial to retrieve the latest version of the source.
hg clone https://bitbucket.org/Blzut3/ecwolf
It is recommended that you create a build directory in the newly created ecwolf directory.
cd ecwolf mkdir build cd build
Run CMake to generate a Makefile. Assuming there were no errors, you should be able to run make to compile.
cmake .. make
An ecwolf binary should be produced.
In most cases it is good idea to generate a back trace when ECWolf crashes. To make a debug build of ecwolf simply replace the cmake command with the following.
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug make
You should now be able to use gdb to generate a back trace.
GDB has it's own command prompt. Use "run" to start ecwolf and use "bt" to get the back trace after a crash.
(gdb) run (gdb) bt
Building an App Bundle
While the CMake is configured such that it can build an app bundle (at times), the official bundles are built by hand. Simply replace the Contents/MacOS/ecwolf binary and respective pk3 with your own.
