A NOOBS TUTORIAL FOR COMPILING RESIDUAL ON PPC
So, what is this?
For those, who are still on an G4 Mac with OSX 10.5.8 and want to play Grim Fandango
thru ResidualVM and not thru emulation via VPC/Win98 - this is for you!
This procedure should work on any 12" powerbook G4 1.5Ghz, running 10.5.8.
Other ppc machines are not tested. If you got a different PPC machine or OSX version
, this might not work for you!
Hint: Every terminal command in quotes must be used without ""
Hint: If you are on 10.5 Mac Intel, you can skip step 9.
First, we need to get and setup some tools - this is maybe the hardest part.
1. Get a copy of XCode and make sure, you install the whole thing. X11 also must be installed (X11 User package), you will find this your Leopard CD/DVD, see "optional install" and/or on the internet.
2. If you dont have an account at Apple Developer Network, go create one. It takes only
a few minutes and you gain access to the tool you will need: XCode 3.1.4.
You will find it there (a far bit down the page, or just simply do search within your
3. Download XCode 3.1.4 (about 1GB ) and install it on your Mac.
4. Now, you are set to install another one : MacPorts
5. After you've successfully done this, open the terminal an type:
"sudo port -v selfupdate" and wait for some smaller downloads to end.
6. Now type "sudo port install libsdl" to get the last "tool" you need.
This will take a longer while (like 1 hour or a bit more, if you are on G4 1.5Ghz)
Just be patient and wait till this stuff finishes.
7. We also need Git to download the source: Type: "sudo port install git-core"
8. Ok, now it's time to get the latest version of ResidualVM. Just type "git clone git://github.com/residualvm/residualvm.git
" into your terminal.
Now, change the directory: "cd residual"
9. After a short download go on with "./configure". After it finishes, you have to edit
a file called "config.h". You can open it in editor by typing "pico config.h". go down the lines
(arrow-down key), till you see "#ifndef....UINT64" "#define...UINT64" "#endif" and delete these lines. (ONLY THESE!)
10. Now, we can (finally) start building the application. Type "make bundle" into your terminal
and wait for the process to finish.
11. You can close the terminal now and open up you home directory in finder. Or just type "residual"
in spotlight and open the residual folder. In this folder, you should see an application called "ResidualVM"
with a yellow "R" icon. You can drag this into your dock or just doubleclick it to start ResidualVM.
