Re: No install target on OS X
Attached is a patch that resolves my issues and makes PortMidi install
on OS X. It also sets the INSTALL_NAME_DIR flag, which is required for
OS X dylibs to behave nicely in some situations . However, cmake
doesn't appear to be stitching that path into the dylib correct, it
instead just makes the library's id "libportaudio.dylib". This looks
like a bug in cmake to me, but in any event, it seems like it's still
enough to fix my problems with Mixxx even though it's not 100%
I changed that Linux install stuff to apply to OS X as well, I'm not
quite sure why it wasn't that way before. Unless you want to build
PortMidi as an OS X "framework", I would recommend keeping the install
procedure the same as for Linux because that seems to be the de facto
I also had to change the paths to portmidi.h and porttime.h, which
hopefully doesn't break the install target on other platforms. When
building on OS X, cmake treats those paths as relative to the pm_dylib
Please let me know if you have any comments or if you commit it
because I need to pass along build instructions for PortMidi to
Mixxx's OS X packager soon. We're in the final phases of unifying
Mixxx's MIDI code into a single PortMidi-based backend for all
platforms which we plan on including in our next release. If you're
not familiar with our project, Mixxx is open source cross-platform DJ
software and gets quite a few downloads, so hopefully we'll be able to
increase the amount of testing PortMidi receives.
