I haven't been able to get a build of PyOpenGL to work on Macintosh
(10.4) for some time. I can build_w OK, but during build_ext I get lots
of errors of the form:
225: error: field 'st_atimespec' has incomplete type
This is for version 2.0.2.01, using python 2.4.2, on Mac OSX 10.4.5
with the gcc-4.0 provided by Xcode/Developer tools 2.2.1
I initially tried this on a MacBook pro (Intel), but have since seen the
same errors on a powerpc based Mac. I've also seen them in version
2.0.1.09, and the cvs source checked out today (3-15-06).
If I'm remembering correctly, this could be workd around (at least in
version 2.0.1.09) by compiling with gcc-3.3 rather than 4.0
I'm not sure that still works, but even if it does, it will be hard luck for
me, since the Intel based macs are only supported by gcc-4.0.
In any case, any help building on recent Macs would be greatly
BTW: I also had to edit a line in setup/build_w.py in order to rebuild
This is line 20:
data = stderr.read()
data = sout.read()+stderr.read()
I was getting the output of "swig -version" on stdout, not stderr, so the
original code resulted in an empty string for "data" and the swig
version check always failed.
