2008-01-31 10:43:18     Blackfin tools and SVN on OS X

Cameron Barfield (UNITED STATES)

Message: 50479    I'd noticed a fellow user was using OS X for development. I'd tried to set up my Mac at home for development but was unable to overcome some problems with subversion and OS X's HFS case-insensitive file system.

 

I queried Nooney and here is how he overcame the problem:

 

    To get around the case-insensitive issue I have installed an external USB hard drive and then used the disk utility app  to format it in a  unix file system.

 

I was hesitant to post the question because I didn't want to spam the forum, but decided to create the thread at Nooney's insistence.

Message: 50483    there are no plans to support case-insensitive file systems now or ever with the build system.  the way you overcome this on OS X is to use case-sensitive filesystems.  you can create a dedicated partition, or an image, or an external hard drive, or ...

 

there is a document in our wiki:

Message: 50485    It would make about as much sense to support case-insensitive file systems as it does for Apple to be using a case-insensitive file system with a BSD kernel.

 

I notice that the wiki page is a bit outdated. I don't imagine the patch referenced there would work with the new toolchain. If I were to develop on OS X, would I be stuck with an outdated toolchain? I only ask because my Mac is significantly faster than my Linux box at home.

Message: 50489    You mean your wiki doesn't automatically cause my browser to refresh if you update a page while I'm reading it?
