Xpra: Ticket #2383: macos moduleset updates for 3.0

See #1985 for 2.5, and pull from ‚Äčhttps://github.com/GNOME/gtk-osx Log URL: log/xpra/trunk/osx

Since v3 will be supported for years, we have to try to stay close to the upstream stable moduleset.



Mon, 12 Aug 2019 05:33:55 GMT - Antoine Martin: status, description changed

After merging from upstream in r23490 + r23491 + r23492 + r23493, jhbuild did the usual thing: fail with an utterly unhelpful message, very much like #1392. Why are they so keen on swallowing exceptions everywhere? Adding print statements in various places, it turns out that the real cause is this:

failed to parse https://xpra.org/svn/Xpra/trunk/osx/jhbuild/modulesets-stable/gtk-osx.modules: unknown module type meson

Mon, 12 Aug 2019 06:30:15 GMT - Antoine Martin:

The meson issue is because we have to re-bootstrap gtk-osx... More info here: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk-osx/tree/master.

Also, to workaround the https issues with the old version of wget found in macos, just install a newer one (TODO: move this to moduleset):

curl -O https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/wget/wget-1.20.3.tar.gz
tar -zxvf wget-1.20.3.tar.gz
cd wget-1.20.3
./configure --with-ssl=openssl --prefix=$JHBUILD_PREFIX
make
make install

Then we also have to set CA_CERTIFICATE.


Mon, 12 Aug 2019 13:00:26 GMT - Antoine Martin: description changed

To make this work (PITA):

That's OK for the python3 / gtk3 variant, but for the python2 / gtk2 environment, there is no python3 there and meson requires it... During setup the gtk-osx-setup.sh script said something about installing a pipenv with python3, somewhere? who knows? Do I have to restore the old modules and make a GTK2 URL for it?


Mon, 12 Aug 2019 13:43:39 GMT - Antoine Martin:

Then later, glib complained that https://ninja-build.org/ was not installed.. Yay, yet another build system to deal with. (looking at the setup script, it should have been pulled automatically, oh well) And this one requires a weird incantation to install (and still complained about something):

python3 ./configure.py --bootstrap
cp ninja $JHBUILD_PREFIX/bin

Wed, 14 Aug 2019 13:32:05 GMT - Antoine Martin:

Other things that broke: JHBUILD_PREFIX/lib/charset.alias went MIA.

Starting again from scratch on a clean new 10.11 "El Capitan" VM - first for GTK2:

But also:

The gtk error is caused by the newer pango version missing some macros, simply re-adding them to the pango.h fixes things, but then pygtk still fails later. So r23506 (+r23507 fixup) downgrades pango back to version 1.42.4 - doesn't gtk-osx still support gtk2? r23508 also reverts the harfbuzz + freetype-no-harfbuzz changes needed by the older version of pango but keeps the newer freetype version. (it builds as long as you skip the tests - TODO: make a patch or use a different branch for GTK2 / GTK3?)

Next, try GTK3...


Wed, 14 Aug 2019 17:37:59 GMT - Antoine Martin:

More GTK2 difficulties:


Thu, 15 Aug 2019 11:58:46 GMT - Antoine Martin:

GTK3: on the same system, with the same version of xcode. Running the gtk-osx setup script and trying to bootstrap fails to link xz properly, like it is using the targeting the wrong SDK version. WTH!?


Thu, 15 Aug 2019 14:57:47 GMT - Antoine Martin:

More updates:


Thu, 15 Aug 2019 15:41:46 GMT - Antoine Martin:

So, the build errors are now also occurring with the first user - at least this part makes sense. They are caused by xcode 8.x: homebrew: python3 failed to build on 10.11.6 with Xcode 8: There's an "issue" (Apple considers it a feature) with the new Xcode, which happens as a consequence of Apple retaining the single SDK structure rather than having one SDK in Xcode for 10.11 and another for 10.12. More info here. Patching dozens of projects for some Apple-only SDK version breakage would be crazy, so I'm now downgrading to xcode 7 instead.

Still TODO:

Adding the library path works around this issue - and hits another one.. (libjpeg):

DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=$PREFIX/lib python3 -c "from gi.repository import Gtk"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/Users/gtk3/gtk/inst/lib/python3.7/site-packages/gi/__init__.py", line 42, in <module>
    from . import _gi
ImportError: dlopen(/Users/gtk3/gtk/inst/lib/python3.7/site-packages/gi/_gi.cpython-37m-darwin.so, 2): Symbol not found: __cg_jpeg_resync_to_restart
  Referenced from: /System/Library/Frameworks/ImageIO.framework/Versions/A/ImageIO
  Expected in: /Users/gtk3/gtk/inst/lib/libJPEG.dylib
 in /System/Library/Frameworks/ImageIO.framework/Versions/A/ImageIO

Reproducible with just:

DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/Users/gtk3/gtk/inst/lib python3 -c "import gi"

Rebuilding gobject-introspection and pygobject3 does not help. That's because the ImageIO framework needs the old system libjpeg, not the one we force with DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH.. So we need a way to get gdk-pixbuf to load the correct dylib without using DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH. Is it a coincidence that gdk-pixbuf is one of the modules that has switched to the meson build system?


Fri, 16 Aug 2019 12:36:48 GMT - Antoine Martin:

Some pointers:

This does allow us to import gtk:

DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH=$PREFIX/lib python3 -c "from gi.repository import Gtk"

But using the same env var does not fix running the tests!

Options:

Then a new problem during packaging:

ValueError: '/Users/gtk3/gtk/inst/lib/libpython3.7.dylib' does not exist

And indeed, it does not. We have a libpython3.7m.dylib instead because python was built with --with-pymalloc. Why doesn't py2app figure it out? Solved by:

cd $PREFIX/lib/
ln -sf libpython3.7m.dylib libpython3.7.dylib

Fri, 16 Aug 2019 13:09:44 GMT - Antoine Martin:

Reverting gdk-pixbuf to autotools in r23523 (+r23524 fixup) fixes that problem. But then it's atk's turn:

$ python3 -c "from gi.repository import Gtk"
** (-c:48674): WARNING **: 19:58:30.103: Failed to load shared library 'libatk-1.0.0.dylib' referenced by the typelib: dlopen(libatk-1.0.0.dylib, 9): image not found

So r23525 reverts that one to autotools.


Fri, 16 Aug 2019 13:23:47 GMT - Antoine Martin:

New problem after that: gtk-mac-integration needs rebuilding, it depends on gtk which did get rebuilt. jhbuild should have figured it out...

Moving on, then the unit tests fail again, but later:

FAIL: test_all_codecs_found (__main__.TestDecoders)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Traceback (most recent call last):

Then running the test by hand produces another strange error:

That's because of the missing numpy, which is used to generate the test pixel buffers.


Fri, 16 Aug 2019 13:47:28 GMT - Antoine Martin:

Fixing numpy: revert to v1.16.4 in r23526.


Fri, 16 Aug 2019 18:18:36 GMT - Antoine Martin:

More GTK3 fixes:

And with these changes, I can finally make both GTK2 and GTK3 builds again!


Sat, 17 Aug 2019 08:51:50 GMT - Antoine Martin:

And... that's obviously not the end of it. GTK2 builds have a new problem: the gi bindings are missing, and trying to force enable them in pygobject with --enable-introspection does not work:

  CC     _gi_la-pygi-foreign-gvariant.lo
pygi-info.c:165:14: error: use of undeclared identifier 'GI_INFO_TYPE_ERROR_DOMAIN'

  CC     _gi_la-pygi-boxed.lo
3 warnings and 3 errors generated.

Apparently, that's because the versions are incompatible: pygobject make error.

Looks like the one we want is actually pygobject3. It builds OK, even against python2, but does not run:

 python2 -c "import gi"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "gi/__init__.py", line 23, in <module>
    from ._gi import _API, Repository
ImportError: No module named _gi

Sat, 17 Aug 2019 12:18:33 GMT - Antoine Martin:

Ignore the second half of comment:17, which was run from a directory containing a "gi" folder, causing this spurious error.

The new builds do include the gi bindings, but pygtk needed rebuilding (a different version of atk got built at some point?) Same for gtk-mac-integration-python

Updating flac to 1.3.3 (r23708) did not help. Fixed by adding #include <stdint.h> near the top of $PREFIX/inst/include/ogg/ogg.h.

From comment:11 :

Is it a coincidence that gdk-pixbuf is one of the modules that has switched to the meson build system?

No, it's not: Need to explicitly export DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH : It mostly has to do with meson and rpaths, ... I just got GitHub up to date, so if that's where you got it pull and bundle again

Will try again for 4.0 : #2385
