KiCad 5.0.2 for MAC might vanish for a bit


#1

KiCad 5.0.2 might require an update for mac as it has been compiled with wrong settings:
https://lists.launchpad.net/kicad-developers/msg38890.html

Getting a new version might take a bit.


#2

Ah HA! That might explain the seg fault crashes I’ve had.

Do you know if the nightly builds are affected by the compilation error? I’d like to poke around on those while I wait for a 5.0.2 mac stable


#3

So, 5.0.2 has been pulled, but it seems the 5.0.1 stable which is available does not include the fix for the symbol editor seg fault crashes (which is the same bug I was seeing in 5.0.2).

Supposedly this was fixed for 5.0.1 on the 27th of November. Ref:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/kicad/+bug/1795214

The 5.0.1 build currently available via the website (14 Oct 2018) obviously pre-dates this fix and does indeed exhibit the seg fault error in the symbol editor on OS X Mojave.

Does anybody know where we can get the 27 Nov 2018 5.0.1 build for OS X referenced in the bug report as the fix?


#4

Please test the 5.0 testing branch at http://downloads.kicad-pcb.org/osx/testing/5.0/

This includes all 5.0.2 commits and is where the builds are being tried out. If it works for you, please report this to the bug reports at
