Possible SDCC 2.6 issue on Intel Mac

DarwinPorts recently updated SDCC from 2.4.0 to 2.6.0 . This works
just as before on PPC MacOS X 10.4.7 (and now .8). But (at least for
me), 2.6.0 dies compiling usb_common.c in usrp/firmware/lib .
Reverting back to 2.4.0 does the trick. Any other Intel-OSX users
find this? - MLD

ps> Looks like the 20" Intel-iMac has the same USB issue as the
MacBook and Mac Pro … LIBUSB finds only 1 interface, even though 3
are required. I had hoped for functionality “out of the box”, but on
the positive side at least now I have a platforms upon which to do
my debugging :wink:

Can you file a Trac ticket on this? It would be good to have the
details above captured for future reference other than on the mailing
list.

Maybe you could start a MacMini page on the Wiki?

Thanks,

I just did, though I think it’s an SDCC / Intel-Mac issue, which is
not GR’s direct problem (“SEP”). Much like those Intel-Macs which
don’t work - that’s a LIBUSB problem, not a GR problem.

I added info to the OSX install page about which Intel-Macs are known
to work and not, right now; I also now have access to an Intel-Mac
which doesn’t work and hence can hopefully find a solution quickly. -
