Hello Miroslav,

even though I think I'm the only OpenBSD guy here -  

do I have any change to get a actual notecase pro binary for OpenBSD 6.8 64 bit?

There's no hurry but the last working binary was for version 6.5 one and a half year ago and with tricks I did get it to work under 6. 6 and 6.7.
No chance with the actual version 6.8, my manually set symlinks are crippled up and the libraries had too much changes since then.

Again: no hurry.

Greetings from Cologne (ok, the area of Cologne)

Andre

Hi Andre,

sure, I'll create a OpenBSD VM and update the official build to OpenBSD 6.8.
I'll probably have more time during the next weekend though.

If anyone uses OpenBSD 6.5, please let me know, I plan to discontinue it once v6.8 becomes available.

Regards,
  Miro

Hi Andre,
The test build for OpenBSD 6.8 using GTK3 is available here:

Can you give it a try? If no issues found, I can add it to the official downloads page (replacing older OpenBSD 6.5 build).

Regards,
  Miroslav

Hello Miroslav,

thank you very much.
I just installed it but I have some Issues with the dependencies.

I also installed gtksourceview3-xxxx, but there's another library missing which belongs to the standard C library: libc++abi.
I'm no programmer so I don't know in which C++- package this library is included... can you tell me the actual notecase dependencies?

Best regards
Andre

I also installed llvm but that did not the trick... ;)

Hi Andre,

the program should need these packages:
gtksourceview3  (gtk3 is dependency of this so no need to install gtk3 explicitly)
libexecinfo
gstreamer1-plugins-base

The compiler used was the default one clang/clang++, but llvm should have helped here.
Can you check if you have installed the packages listed above? Perhaps some of these is missing?

Regards,
  Miroslav

It seems pkglocate command can give an answer what package installed some file.
To install pkglocate:
# pkg_add -r pkglocatedb

To find answer to your question:
# pkglocate /usr/lib/libc++abi.so.3.0
base68:/usr/lib/libc++abi.so.3.0

So it seems package name is "base68"

  Miroslav

Hello Miroslav,

base68 is the always installed OpenBSD standard base package - I think it could be a problem of the branch I use at the office , it's 6.8-current (with a lot of weekly updates), not 6.8-stable.

/usr/lib/libc++abi.so.3.0 is present but it requests a higher version at start, so I think it's a current-brach problem.

I will test notecase pro this evening at home with a fresh 6.8 install and report later... 

Best regards
Andre

Hallo Miroslav,

I couldn't wait this long .... ;)

It was a 6.8-current problem.  Your hint with /usr/lib/libc++abi.so.3.0 was helpful:
when notecase startet it missed libc++abi.so.5.0.

I did a whole new upgrade to -current and now it runs perfect!

I still will install it at home on a fresh 68-stable so that it matches your setup...

Ha, fine! Well done!

Greetings
Andre

and it looks similar to the version running on my MAC:

Hopefully this is not related to a Notecase issue 🙂

No, that's for sure a user-issue located in front of the systems :-))))

Hello Miroslav,

installation runs as expected on 6.8-stable. No further tweaking required and no issues so far.

Thank you very much!


Best regards
Andre
