If you are trying to build MythTV from source, you are usually trying to build a frontend to match a Linux backend. This means you need to build a compatible version. e.g. if the backend is MythTV-0.21, then try to build the same Mac frontend version, or maybe the latest version of that source code branch - MythTV-0.21-fixes.

The developers usually keep these branches very stable, so they should build on most Mac OS versions. However, building the latest and greatest - trunk - may be a little more difficult, depending on what changes have been committed recently, and how hostile they are to Mac OS X and Windows.

This document is trying to be a whiteboard of peoples’ building successes and failures.

MythTV 0.15.1, 0.16

Nigel has a tarball of those source trees that used to compile on 10.2 and 10.3 machines (of course, PowerPC only). 10.2 also required dlcompat to be installed. (rough 10.2 build instructions here)

MythTV 0.17, 0.18, 0.19

0.17 was the first release to compile “out of the box” on a Mac. I think these were 10.3 only.

MythTV 0.20

The first release to compile on an Intel Mac. The Myth_on_Mac_x86 page lists many of the historical gorey details involved in getting there.
