Tested as working on 10.6 and 10.7. Please close.

(will create another bug ticket for the free crash)

Ok, updated in git. This time for sure?

Still not working because $host_os is darwin10.8.0, not darwin10

You missed the asterisk at the end of those darwin patterns :-(

Thanks for the configure.ac patch. Is in git now. And no, it is not dependant on the version of autoconf, [] is the way one quotes a string.

Thanks also for looking into the malloc/free. A guess is that some structure has changed in other drivers it is not reflected in the osx driver. There have been some major changes recently. CD-Text was overhauled which is the most likely cause. Some changes were also made to support non-gcc compilers MSVC in particular which doesn't allow flexible arrays at the end of structures.

Getting closer, but those wildcards don't seem to work in configure:

rm -f Makefile

After a bit of fiddling, it looks like autoconf strips the square brackets off. Try this:

It might just be the old autoconf I am using, but I doubt it?

Still looking into the malloc/free problem.

I have made changes in git to try to address all of the issues except the SEGV. For that I'd need a gdb traceback. Better would be if there is something like valgrind for OSX which tracks invalid memory reads and writes.

1) Rocky, good guess about the bool. Looks like include/cdio/types.h assumes stdbool.h is always included beforehand (the #ifndef __bool_true_false_are_defined).

When compiling osx.c, it isn't. Correct way is for configure to check for stdbool.h, and include/cdio/types.h should #include it if exists on the platform.

A simpler way is just to include it in osx.c :-)

Sadly, with either compile fix, git head has other faults:

2)a) Duplicate symbol stuff appears to be resolved. Thanks!

2)b) 10.7 is:

Nigels-MacBook-Air:libcdio nigel$ ./config.guess
Nigels-MacBook-Air:libcdio nigel$ uname -a
Darwin Nigels-MacBook-Air.local 11.3.0 Darwin Kernel Version 11.3.0: Thu Jan 12 18:47:41 PST 2012; root:xnu-1699.24.23~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64

darwin11 needs to be added to configure.ac, lines 327 and 349. Will probably need darwin12 for 10.8, too.

P.S. The new darwin_10 stuff in configure.ac is broken:

MacBook% egrep DARWIN config.h
#define DARWIN_10_OR_GREATER $darwin_10

I don't think variables are expanded in AC_DEFINE ?

Re: comment #10

1) the "conflicting types" must probably be different definitions of "bool". You can see what the definition of bool is by compiling osx.c using the gcc flags -dD -E and changing -o to say /tmp/osx.i. Then look for definitions of bool to see why this is getting defined differently two ways.

2) What does running config.guess in the directory where configure is located report? What does uname -a show?

I believe the problems with the duplicate symbol _cdtext_format_enum should be resolved in current git sources.

Re: comment #6

After grabbing last night's Git master, and hacking (10.6 only has autoconf 2.61 on 10.6, and 10.7 doesn't seem to come with any autoconf)...

1) On 10.6, the includes and HAVE_DARWIN_CDROM are all OK, but compilation fails elsewhere:

libtool: compile:  gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I../.. -I../../lib/driver -I../../include -I../../include/ -g -O2 -Wall -Wchar-subscripts -Wmissing-prototypes -Wmissing-declarations -Wunused -Wpointer-arith -Wwrite-strings -Wnested-externs -Wno-sign-compare -MT osx.lo -MD -MP -MF .deps/osx.Tpo -c osx.c  -fno-common -DPIC -o .libs/osx.o

make[3]: *** [osx.lo] Error 1

2) On 10.7, configure doesn't set HAVE_DARWIN_CDROM:

checking dynamic linker characteristics... darwin11.3.0 dyld
checking how to hardcode library paths into programs... immediate
checking for cos in -lm... yes
configure: WARNING: I don't see GNU ld. I'm going to assume --without-versioned-libs
configure: WARNING: Don't have OS CD-reading support for darwin11.3.0...

and make fails elsewhere, as per comments #7 thru #9 (another anonymous, not me :-)

that helped but there are other files with same issue:

ld: duplicate symbol _cdtext_format_enum in .libs/bincue.o and .libs/cdtext.o for architecture x86_64

it seems like bad form, and the source of this build issue, that xxx_private.h is being included anywhere but xxx.c:

aix.c:#include "cdtext_private.h"
bsdi.c:#include "cdtext_private.h"
cdtext.c:#include "cdtext_private.h"
image/bincue.c:#include "cdtext_private.h"
image/cdrdao.c:#include "cdtext_private.h"
image/nrg.c:#include "cdtext_private.h"
mmc/mmc.c:#include "cdtext_private.h"
solaris.c:#include "cdtext_private.h"

I think I found the problem here. Try with current git sources, commit db91979..dd7a5dc or apply the attached patch.

I am attempting to test the latest changes on OS X 10.7 but i am running into build issues. Building in lib/driver produces a linker error:

ld: duplicate symbol _cdtext_format_enum in .libs/gnu_linux.o and .libs/cdtext.o for architecture x86_64

Fri 13 Apr 2012 08:22:21 PM UTC, comment #6: 

First and foremost, thanks for the information.

In the current git sources what I had done was to use the new path from your patch but only in Darwin 10 or greater. From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darwin_%28operating_system%29 this goes back to August 2009. Given what you report it may also be valid from Darwin 9 or greater as well. But I am guessing that the other path was okay since no one has said anything about this previously.

Would you do me a favor and try the current git sources to see that things compile properly on 10.6.8. If so, let me know and I will close ticket. Thanks.

Hi Rocky. The Apple documentation has mandated the shorter path for about 5 years:


Only compiled and tested on a 10.6.8 machine. A quick search of include paths on nearby machines:

macbook% find /System/Library/Frameworks/ -name scsi-commands
macbook% find /Volumes/10*/System/Library/Frameworks/ -name SCSITaskLib.h
macbook% uname -a
Darwin MacBook.local 10.8.0 Darwin Kernel Version 10.8.0: Tue Jun  7 16:33:36 PDT 2011; root:xnu-1504.15.3~1/RELEASE_I386 i386

reveals safety for the last 4 major OS releases?

Sorry for the anonymity - the artificially complex I was forced to register with has somehow slipped my short term memory, and I have to wait another day for that unused account to expire :-(

With respect to the patch that was attached, what OSX were tested. Just 10.6?

#include locations were changed in that patch. How far back are those different locations valid?

No. I still don't have access to something that runs Snow Leopard let alone have something I can develop from.

But the code is open source. Patches are welcome and I invite others can feel free to look at and suggest fixes.

Sorry for the delay.

If you attach diff output on the headers and output logs perhaps I can take a look. Right now I don't have anything I can develop Snow Leopard on.

Mon 31 May 2010 10:32:41 PM UTC, original submission:  

I attempted to build 0.82 and git latest on Snow Leopard. In both cases the resulting library is broken.

I poked around a little bit and noticed that the osx driver isn't even being init'ed because HAVE_DARWIN_CDROM seems to not be defined.

Just defining HAVE_DARWIN_CDROM doesn't resolve the problem. There are some IOKit headers which seem to have change been moved in 10.6. Once I fixed those I got some undefined symbols. That's where I gave up.

It looks like the build just needs to be fixed up for Snow Leopard.
