[OSX] Installation problems

I’ll be posting an assortment of panda-on-osx installation questions, mostly having to do with older hardware or pre 10.5 versions.

First one: on a G4, running 10.5.8, we get this error using the 1.6.2 installer:

  File "/Applications/Panda3D/1.6.2/lib/pandac/extension_native_helpers.py", line 73, in Dtool_PreloadDLL
    imp.load_dynamic(module, pathname)
ImportError: dlopen(/Applications/Panda3D/1.6.2/lib/libpanda.dylib, 2): Symbol not found: __ZN6squish10DecompressEPhPKvi
  Referenced from: /Applications/Panda3D/1.6.2/lib/libpanda.dylib

Will it run on PowerPC or do we need to build it?

Second question: is there a build for 10.4?

Oops. Looks like I didn’t compile a universal build of libsquish.
I’ll get it fixed before 1.7.0, I think.

No, because I don’t have access to a Tiger machine to build it on.

I believe if you set the environment variable:
before building, the resulting build is supposed to run on Tiger and above. Of course, this also must be done for all of the third-party software. :frowning:
