Summary: Pallet build fails on 10.15Pallet: error: Compiling for earlier than macOS 10.6 is no longer supported.

The error in the log is:

error: Compiling for earlier than macOS 10.6 is no longer supported.

There are many other open bug reports about Pallet. If you can help resolve them so that Pallet can be used again on modern macOS versions, that would be appreciated.

Summary: Pallet: error: Compiling for earlier than macOS 10.6 is no longer supported.Pallet: Build Failure on Catalina 10.15. error: Compiling for earlier than macOS 10.6 is no longer supported. huh?

The error message is confusing, as this is failing in Catalina 10.15, not anything earlier than Snow Leopard 10.6. Does it mean “newer’, and Pallet has not worked since then? Or is the detection of OS in the build wrong? As Pallet is the “official” GUI for MacPorts it would be nice to get it going on Catalina.

it is on Catalina 10.15. Replying to coolbikerdad:

I think the error is mean for compiling xib file from 10.6 system as full error message is :

/* com.apple.ibtool.document.warnings */

The problem is that MainMenu.xib is in an old file format, apparently pre-10.6. For Catalina, it needs to be updated to Xcode's current file format and compiled in that version. There is also a slew of error messages that require some changes to the layout.

on another port that showed the same error, the xib files indicated a hardcoded deployment target of 10.5. I just reinplaced that to 10.6 and everything worked. Probably could reinplace it to the current build systems os version, didn't try.

I assumed they were made like that by the xcode that generated them, but the current ibtool just no longer carries the code to build them in the 10.5 format, Not that we need them built in that format anyway.

So that is a very easy thing to try.
