Installers for Mac users are now available, on http://freeciv.wikia.com/wiki/Install-MacOSX
If you have access to a Mac, please try it out, and report any problems to this thread.

Great, hopefully the stuff available on dropbox ends up on freeciv.org later.

Hello,
I have download the Mac installer 2.6, but it doesn't work on my Mac (10.12.2)
I get the following message:

Dyld Error Message:
Library not loaded: /usr/local/Cellar/libvorbis/1.3.5_1/lib/libvorbis.0.dylib
Referenced from: /usr/local/opt/libvorbis/lib/libvorbisfile.3.dylib
Reason: image not found


Could you tell me if there is something missing on my Mac that I need to setup up beforehand (X11?), or is the issue coming from the Installer?

Thank you for your work and your help!

I have found the problem, and there are now fixed versions of the installers. You need to delete the folder
/usr/local/opt/libvorbis from your Mac, and re-run the new installer. You will need to use the Mac's Terminal app to delete that folder, and you may need to mess with permissions. If you don't know Unix and need more detailed help then send me a message.

Arg - another fix was required, there are now new versions of the installers. You need to delete the folder
/usr/local/opt/ and re-run the new installer.

I have now confirmed that the installer over-writes things when installing over a previous installation, as I hoped it would. So if you're re-installing, disregard my previous comments about deleting things.
Newest version of the 2.6.0b2 install now also includes a bonus option of a new ruleset I've been playing with.

Appreciate any help, thanks.

I've tried to reinstall game couple times but with no result. Then I've tried to upgrade libvorbis library from Homebrew. Result:

Code: Select all

 /usr/local/Cellar/libvorbis/1.3.5_1: 159 files, 2.3MB

Bug with libvorbis deps gone.

But game still doesn't run.

New error: freeciv quit unexpectedly.

I got the same error with the 2.5.11 installer on MacOS 10.13.5. It appears to me that the problem is that it's looking for libvorbis 1.3.5_1, but the installed version is 1.3.6. (At least, I have a directory at /usr/local/Cellar/libvorbis/1.3.6, but not 1.3.5_1.)

I found a workaround. In terminal:

Code: Select all

cd /usr/local/Cellar/libvorbis
sudo ln -s 1.3.6 1.3.5_1

It works now.
