Ticket #27432 (closed update: wontfix)
|Reported by:||adfernandes@…||Owned by:||toby@…|
There are a number of trouble tickets for libusb on Mac - see, for example here.
Most importantly, it is impossible to use libusb via MacPorts to hack a Microsoft Kinect as per here.
I've collected the latest dev-stable-ish version of libusb (checking carefully for all darwin-related changes) and added the required patch. As far as I can test and read in the source, this does not disrupt programs that require libusb as the API has not changed since the official 1.0.8.
I would therefore ask the maintainers to consider revbumping to the attached version so that we can hack on the kinect at will.
