I'd like to try compiling some GNUStep Tutorial Code on OSX Yosemite as Kevin Mitchell's post indicated he has done: (This is my main desktop machine and I just upgraded to Yosemite).


Using gnustep-make, from homebrew which uses the Cocoa framework.

To do it, apparently you have to fix or supply the missing RELEASE/AUTORELEASE macros.

Anyone have a clue how to do that ?

Maybe something like this? (Untested)

#define RELEASE(x) [(x) release]
#define AUTORELEASE(x) [(x) autorelease]
#define RETAIN(x) [(x) retain] 

I spend more time trying to install GNUStep than i do actually using it.

I had no trouble installing it on Ubuntu 14.04 last summer on a desktop I have since discarded.  Now I try the same steps (posted by Schaub),


And in fails in the cmake <space> ..   stating that it can find the pthread.h but is missing some other pthread_code component.

#install libobjc2
cd ~/Downloads/libobjc2
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
sudo make install

In other email you clarified that this is a separate Ubuntu 14.04 install, and is unrelated to attempting to build GNUstep tutorial code on Yosemite. Thank you.

Could you please be more specific what fails here? 'pthread_code' doesn't mean anything. Please post relevant portion of the build logs :-) 

I dream of a stable GNUstep environment were I can actually try out some of the apps instead of wondering which missing component or incompatible version of what, where, is messing up the works.

Or...should I just use apt-get to install the Debian stuff on Ubuntu 14.04 ?  Will that give me enough to do compiles ?

It'll be a bit outdated, but it should work.
