64-bit Mac On FATE

October 2nd, 2008 by Multimedia Mike

I really appreciate the flurry of SVN activity on FFmpeg today– it helped build confidence in my revised build/test script. FATE work items completed tonight:

  • set up a configuration to build and test 64-bit FFmpeg binaries for Mac OS X; thanks to David Conrad for schooling me on how to do this in the comments to the last post
  • re-instated the Linux/x86_32 and x86_64 configurations
  • upgraded all gcc-svn configurations to the latest version
  • disabled all gcc 4.3.1 configurations; replaced with latest and greatest 4.3.2 configurations

I still haven’t gotten Python 2.5.2 on Gentoo to import sqlite3, so the PowerPC is still cheerfully running the classical, less efficient build/test script.

I sat back and watched the various configurations rip through their build/test assignments. Then I noticed a result on the main FATE page that had passed 85/94 tests. That’s a bug (too few tests). So I did what came naturally, deleted the record, and am waiting to see if it happens again. I think I may know what the problem is, though. That’s the nice thing about being the sole developer of a system– it can actually be possible to juggle all the pieces in your head, understand all the design decisions behind them, and intuitively understand what might be wrong.
