I've noticed the MacVim downloads page has stopped uploading pre-compiled snapshots for OSX 10.6 (only 10.7 is supported now, with 10.6 considered LEGACY). I'm still using 10.6 and wanted to build it myself. I used the following to do so:
git clone https://github.com/b4winckler/macvim.git cd macvim ./configure --with-features=huge \ --enable-gui=macvim \ --enable-macvim-check=yes \ --with-ruby-command=`rbenv which ruby` \ --enable-rubyinterp=yes \ --enable-pythoninterp=yes \ --enable-perlinterp \ --enable-cscope=yes \ --with-python-config-dir=/usr/local/Cellar/python/2.7.2/lib/python2.7/config make
It compiled without any errors, though when I open the
src/MacVim/build/Release/ and clicked the
MacVim.app icon, nothing happened. That is, the application launched but no GUI window opened. If I download a pre-built legacy snapshot and install it, things work fine. Am I missing something, or does macvim not support 10.6 anymore? Thanks.
