32 bites and a sore finger

Post by richmond62 » Sat Jan 19, 2019 12:26 pm

So, here I am being either:

1. A clever chap at the cutting edge of technology,

or

2. A right silly bugger.

[Or, most probably, both]

and, on my 2018 MacMini running MacOS 10.14.3 beta 4, opening LC 8.1.10 this morning I got this:

which means I have found ANOTHER reason to revert to my 2006 iMac running MacOS 10.7
for quite a lot of my work.

I currently deploy a 2006 Mac Mini running MacOS 10.6 as I use Bryce 7,
Appleworks and quite a few other PPC bits of software.

I use a 2006 Mac Mini running 10.7 for Versions of RunRev/Livecode from 4.0 to 8.1.10.

I use a G4 Mac Mini running MacOS 10.4 and "Classic" for HyperCard and so on.
I use a G5 iMac for the same thing, but in my school rather than at home.

This picture is completely irrelevant to what I wrote above:
but posting it here made me feel better and suppress the urge
to jump on a plane to California and biff Tim Cook on the nose.

Whether MacOS 10.14.3 has "suddenly" gone 64-bit-only (because 10.14.2 was not) or not,
I don't know (and if it has, that seems a bit sneaky and underhand), or whether I, in a fit
of unlikely brilliance, have turned off 32-bit capability we have to see.

So, at the risk of looking an "even greater prune" than i do already,
I'm going to try that recipe reffed at the top of this posting.

Aha . . .

LiveCode 8.1.10 DOES work, but probably in some sort of sub-optimal way.

From a selfish point of view this means I am going to have to continue developing my Devawriter Pro app
on older software with LC 8.1.10 and then transfer the stack over to my Mojave box to hive off 64-bit standalone builds for Mac.

I wonder how (?) LC 9 and up will cope with building 32-bit Windows and Linux builds on
64-bit only Macintosh computers?

The dialog is just a warning and LC will work normally. It's just telling you that things may change in the future.

Well thats no fun, where is the surprise if they warn you ahead of time? :lol:

P.S., I loved the Archies, and really liked the song "Sugar sugar"

Boy that brings back memories <sigh>Image

Oddly enough, I was introduced to the Archie comics by my good friend Charles Singh
when we were sharing a house in Al Ain, UAE; he, having been brought up with English
as his first language in India had access to them; while I, growing up with English as one
of my 2 first languages in Britain, did not.

Mind you, Charles was not exposed to the "improving influence" of the Broons:

The only British humor I got in comic form was Andy Capp
