mac os x and homebrew : that works!

Added by Anthony Dahanne over 6 years ago

Hello,
just to tell you guys that if you are a homebrew user rather than a mac port user and do not want to bother having both installedon your systemm; homebrew works just fine.
Andreas, could you please update the read me with :

brew install pkgconfig

(next to ports install pkgconfig)
works fine in mac os x (at least 10.7.5)
then, I followed the typical configure and make steps; I verified launching build.osx/Showtime.app/Contents/MacOS/showtime and watching a video from my NAS
everything worked as in the PS3 version (though only keyboard support, I guess this is normal)

Hum. Why is pkg-config needed?

RE: mac os x and homebrew : that works! - Added by Anthony Dahanne over 6 years ago

because you said so on the readme; that's why I installed it :-)
in the readme we currently have :

Install MacPorts

Install pkg-config using MacPorts

$ sudo port install pkgconfig

we could have :

Install MacPorts or homebrew

Install pkg-config using MacPorts or homebrew

$ sudo port install pkgconfig or brew install pkgconfig

actually, I don't know if we really need pkgconfig or not; I already had it installed
