Nitroshare on PPC

Asked by Youri on 2012-09-03

Can someone built a packet for PPC ? It would be great to run nitroshare on old ibook (OSX Tiger).
I heard it's possible to do it using this git : https://github.com/nathan-osman/NitroShare-Mac

But I know really few about Mac and dont know how to do it.

Thanks

The Intel Mac build was contributed by a NitroShare user who downloaded and compiled the application for us. Sadly, I do not have access to a Mac or I would have certainly produced a PPC and Intel installer image myself.

However, if you have access to a PPC Mac, it isn't too difficult to compile the application:

1. Download and install the Qt SDK (4.7 or greater).
2. Download the NitroShare Mac source code here: https://github.com/nathan-osman/NitroShare-Mac
3. Open the build.pro project file and click build.

It's a real pain to get something working on this OS...

I somehow managed to install Xcode and QTsdk but still can't find where the hell is QTcreator...there is plenty of tools but not that one.

Anyway I decided to try something else and did a makefile with :
qmake-4.7 -spec macx-g++

Then :
make

It start to build till I get the following error :

/usr/libexec/gcc/i686-apple-darwin8/4.0.1/ld: can't locate file for: -lqjson
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [nitroshare.app/Contents/MacOS/nitroshare] Error 1
make: *** [sub-nitroshare-make_default] Error 2

Ok, here is the moment of truth, A PPC build for NitroShare has been made.

Hopefully this works for your PPC, just download and open the .dmg, and drag nitroshare.app to the applications folder.
