ScummVM 1.6.0 Build for Haiku

Post by JenniBee » Thu Mar 20, 2014 1:51 am

I saw on the downloads page that the Haiku port hasn't been updated since 1.4.0, so I compiled the 1.6.0 source code (with GCC4) with --enable-release so Haiku users can try the latest stable version.

You can download it here

JenniBee: Thanks for this update. I noted the outdated ports to the mailing list on 2013-09-01, but there were only a few responses:
http://sourceforge.net/p/scummvm/mailma ... /31351938/

Our Beos/Haiku porter, Begasus last produced a build for the v1.4.0 release as you noted:
http://sourceforge.net/p/scummvm/mailma ... /28620798/

He has been around since and was last active on IRC on 2014-01-03, but the builds for v1.4.1, v1.5.0 and v1.6.0 have not been produced, probably due to a technical issue or just lack of spare time to do this.

If you would like to help with the Haiku port long term, I suggest that you send a message to the scummvm-devel mailing list introducing yourself and offering to join the Haiku port support team alongside Begasus... He should be happy for the help as I have chatted to him before and he is quite amenable.

In the meantime, I assume that you used the guide here to produce your v1.6.0 build?:

Could you also try making a build for v1.5.0 and v1.4.1 so we have all the missing releases as this helps users doing "gross bisection" to locate bugs due to regressions! :)

Also, you could also try cc'ing your scummvm-devel mailing list e-mail to Begasus directly. His e-mail address is listed on the v1.4.0 release mailing that I linked previously.

Thanks again.

The port page is outdated and could use an update, but with the recent changes on the Haiku system it's to early to adjust the page.
Need to check some stuff before applying them, in the meantime, recent files have been uploaded and should be online in the download section soon. :)

@Begasus: Thank you for this.

@JenniBee: If you could do a quick test with the new builds and see if they work fine for you, that would be good. Thanks.
These can be found at:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/scummvm ... z/download
http://sourceforge.net/projects/scummvm ... z/download

I'll look at updating the scummvm web site data and the wiki pages to reflect the up to date status.
