Building the SAFE Browser in Ubuntu For OSX

Hey Everyone!

I just built the SAFE browser for the fist time. I tend not to keep development tools on my host machine, and built the browser in a Ubuntu vm. To quickly realize I couldn’t run the development browser on the host osx box. Standard cross compilation problem I find myself in :smiley:

Anyone do something similar? I checked the docs quickly and didn’t notice anything about cross compiling, of possible flags to pass.

Hey @brianp, you can’t cross compile sadly, it needs to be built on the system itself (you may be able to trigger it, but you’re not guaranteed to have the correct dependencies).

So best just to compile on OSX or trigger a build on something like travis.

Hope that helps.
