Turns out there are a number of issues with X11 on OS X 10.5 Leopard.
This best way to come up to speed on the issues is the following link:
After reading that I was able to implement a few things against the PV
2.6.1 source base. My notes are captured below. I doubt this will ever
be patched into PV2.x cvs but I am posting here in case someone else
needs to get PV 2.6.1 running under OS X 10.5. The Bug is definitely
Apple's. I am hoping the way I implemented my patch will allow one to
easily turn the fix on and off.
Once I did get it running the window drawing was very slow (may just
have been the debug build but I am guess it has something to do with
tcl/tk using QuickDraw instead of Quartz). The OpenGL display _was_
accelerated though which is still a good thing.
Here are my Notes:
#-- Put the following in a file called
IF ( OSX_LEOPARD_OPENGL_FIX )
ENDIF ( OSX_LEOPARD_OPENGL_FIX )
In the Top Level CmakeLists.txt file insert a new option into the OS X section:
OPTION(OSX_LEOPARD_OPENGL_FIX "Adds Linker arguments needed to
correctly select the X11 OpenGL Library" TRUE)
# ----------------- End OS X 10.5 X11 Patch ----------------------------------
Then in all the following Files:
insert the following line somewhere:
Rerun cmake and build. It should run.
