growl / README

This branch represents an unofficial patched version of the Growl
1.2.x sources taken from the last available public source tree. (It
was forked from the maintenance-1.2 branch. The "default" branch seems
to be old and crusty.)

It builds cleanly under XCode 4.1 -- as set up, it constructs binaries
that run only under Mac OS X 10.7 "Lion".

It also incorporates a patch for, which otherwise
crashes on Lion if your WiFi adapter changes state.

None of this work is official, it is not endorsed by the
folks, it is not guaranteed to work at all.


0) You need XCode 4.1 installed
1) Clone the repository.
2) type "./" in the top directory. Better yet, do
   "./ >/tmp/log 2>&1" and make sure when it is done that
   /tmp/log contains no "BUILD FAILED" lines.
3) A zip file of the growl preferences will be in
   To install it by hand (yes, this is cheesy)....
     a) Make sure you have no other version of growl (like 1.3 or 1.2.2)
     b) cd to ~/Library/PreferencePanes and unzip the thing there.
4) .app files for HardwareGrowler, GrowlTunes, etc, are in
   Extras/HardwareGrowler/build/Release (and the like named
   directories for the other "Extras".) I haven't tested these well AT
   ALL -- HardwareGrowler seems to work, GrowlTunes seems to work, I
   haven't tested the others AT ALL.

Patches to automate creating a release are of course welcome -- there
is some existing release automation there but it doesn't seem to be
"press one button" automatic, which it could be. (If I end up doing
this too often I'll do that, or more likely, I'll just wait until
someone else gets frustrated and does it.)
