Build wx libs 3.0.2 on mac os x 10.8

Post by Rudra » Tue Mar 03, 2015 2:26 pm

Hi,

I am trying to port my wx windows application to Mac OSX. I am using Mac Mountain Lion (10.8 ) and Xcode 4.6.3. I want to build static lib.
I guess, I should build the lib using wxcocoa.xcodeproj. Please confirm.

I had to change the compiler setting from (Apple LLVM compiler 4.2 to LLVM GCC 4.2). Also the base SDK setting to OS X 10.8.
I see lots of warnings but it succeed to build. But, I don't find libs.

Please suggest.

Thanks
R.

Thanks for the reply.

I went through the link. I see in step 0 that I need to install Command Line Tools. Installing this fixes the problem. The steps mentioned in install.txt (SDK/docs/osx) now works for me.

I see dynamic libs and used them in building sample minimal through Xcode. Worked fine.

I tried to build static libs like,
../configure --enable-debug --enable-static=yes --enable-shared=no

But when building sample minimal using static libs give 4 linking errors. All the error are related undefined "_iconv" symbol in libwx_baseu-3.0.a lib

Please share your comment on this.

Thanks
R.
