Subject: Re: Compiling the Simulator on Mac OS X
From: svante t (
Date: 2003-07-18

Roland and others,
thanks for the help. But unfortunately the result is the same even
after the CVS changes and unsetting the DISPLAY variable.

I can only interpret the below as I miss some rather vital files for
this compile, right?
Ive tried searching for some of the below files, and as guessed,
they're not there.

Are they part of the X11 package? Apple has their own port of X11,
built on XFree86. I can remove it and install XFree86 from source,
that might do the trick. Im gonna drop a line about this on some
forums before I do this rather extensive operation....

[hobo:~/rockbox/build-uisimulator] svante% sudo make
make -C ../uisimulator/x11 DISPLAY=-DHAVE_LCD_BITMAP
