VLC @2.2.8_6: Build and runtime errors on Mojave

Reported by: michaellass (Michael Lass) Owned by: RJVB (René Bertin)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version:
Keywords: mojave Cc:
Port: VLC


There are currently two distinct problems causing VLC not to work under MacOS Mojave:

  1. VLC suffers from #57234, so it only builds with XCode 10 when forcing use of the old build system. I did that by patching extras/package/macosx/package.mak: git commit
  1. After successfully building VLC, it crashes on startup with the following error:
VLC media player 2.2.8 Weatherwax (revision 2.2.7-14-g3cc1d8cba9)
[00007fac80d0d638] core libvlc: VLC wird mit dem Standard-Interface ausgeführt. Benutzen Sie 'cvlc', um VLC ohne Interface zu verwenden.

Unfortunately I have no clue how to deal with the second problem. Of course, I can provide the fix for problem number 1 as a pull request but I'd rather get it working before.

If relevant: I am building VLC with +quartz -x11.

Can you please try the test port from #56799?

If that also fails with the same exception you'd have to file a bug (if they don't already have a new release out fixing the issue). And/or revert to a less new-fangled OS ... come back from the desert ;)

Both issues are solved in VLC-test (i.e., VLC 3.0.4). So this issue should be solved once VLC 3 enters the ports tree.

Thanks @RJVB for bringing VLC 3 into macports! From my side, this ticket can be closed (#56799 as well I guess).
