Error launching qsampler on MacOS

Post by mikeyp » Wed Aug 08, 2018 10:42 pm

I downloaded linuxsampler_20180508.tar.bz2 and installed to a Macbook Air running MacOS Sierra.
Fantasia launches OK. However, when I attempt to launch qsampler, it pops up a dialog box with an error.

Attempting to launch from the command line shows the issue:

dyld: Library not loaded: /home/persson/mac/i686/lib/libgig/libgig.7.dylib

When I look in /usr/local/lib, I see libgig.8.dylib.

I was able to work around this using a symlink:

# cd /usr/local/lib; ln -s libgig.8.dylib libgig.7.dylib

And... if someone could repackage the .tgz file so that the qsampler binary is linked with the correct libgig library, that would be awesome.

The installers for both Mac and Windows are automatically built on new commits. I just checked the current build script for Mac and it seems it using the latest libgig version now at least. Do you still get this error with latest Mac builds?
