• @jonas Hi @jonas

    I guess we'll have to wait until QT 6 is "bottled" for Homebrew, to get a Strawberry release with QT6.

    I heard that QT6 for macOS uses Metal instead of OpenGL so I guess it should improve substantially the graphics performance 🤞

    Thanks!


  • @llucps

    Yes, I was surprised that it hasn't already been done considering that there have been Qt 6 alpha and beta releases available for a long time. They are usually very quick to update things in homebrew.
    It wasn't too hard to make it work. There were a couple of compile errors that I fixed.
    I submitted a PR to add qt 6 to homebrew: https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew-core/pull/67536

  • You can try this one if you want:
    https://files.strawberrymusicplayer.org/strawberry-0.8.5.22.g3ae90922-qt6-catalina.dmg

    I notice there is a problem with "search for album covers", the dialog does not open.


  • The search for covers dialog does not open with Qt 5 either, maybe it's something to do with the screen resolution in VirtualBox. Does it open for you?

    I just tried to run that build but I'm already using Big Sur and it crashes on launch.

    Not sure whether this happens because Big Sur?

    P.D. I could open the search cover dialog just fine.. but I see you already fix it today. To tell you the truth I've never used that option.

    Thanks.


  • @llucps said in First run with Qt 6:

    /usr/local/bin/strawberry-tagreader
    Looks like the dmg is missing dependencies including strawberry-tagreader
    So it picks up an old version from /usr/local/bin/strawberry-tagreader instead which might be the reason it crashes too.
    I'll look into it tomorrow and create a new one.


  • @jonas Thanks!

  • @llucps
    The tagreader worker issue is fixed. The crash is probably the same as reported in https://forum.strawberrymusicplayer.org/topic/131/strawberry-for-macos-big-sur/3
    Maybe some of the core libraries on Catalina and Big Sur are not binary compatible.
    I don't have Big Sur to test on.
    Does it show a backtrace?


  • @jonas
    This is what I get.. but don't worry if it's too complicated.. I can wait until we get a QT6 build that works with Big Sur.

    I've been using the 0.8.5 builds with Big Sur just fine, I justed wanted to test if the responisveness has been improved because ofthe use of Metal in QT6

  • @llucps
    Yeah, that's why I made different releases for each macOS version now.
    The only problem with that is that I can no longer update the sparkle updater, since that would update for those that have Big Sur to the Mojave or Catalina builds. But maybe there is a solution for that I'm not a aware of.


  • I wonder if I can just build on Big Sur and set CMAKE_OSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET to 10.14

  • @jonas Is there something I can do to help?


  • @llucps I realize it won't work because all the libraries used from homebrew are compiled on Big Sur with no comparability.
