[Feature Request] OSX support in ChunkVNC

Postby MikeLim » 2012-03-08 02:26

Version 3.3 of ChunkVNC removes OSX support as it was not working.
I believed we can add it back with some modifications. :D

Here are my findings:
ChunkVNC 3.2 Mac package was using x11vnc-0.9.8.

Latest version can be downloaded from http://www.karlrunge.com/x11vnc/.
I downloaded this version:
http://x11vnc.sourceforge.net/dev/x11vnc-0.9.14_TEST_MACOSX_10.6_OR_LATER_i386-apple-darwin_10.8.0.X11.32bit


(rename executable to x11vnc for convenience reasons)
chmod +x x11vnc-0.9.14_TEST_MACOSX_10.6_OR_LATER_i386-apple-darwin_10.8.0.32bit
mv x11vnc-0.9.14_TEST_MACOSX_10.6_OR_LATER_i386-apple-darwin_10.8.0.32bit x11vnc

Reading command line syntax from InstantSupport.sh
./x11vnc -connect repeater://REPEATER_HOST_NAME:443+ID:112244

REPEATER_HOST_NAME is the repeater IP address. I hardcoded ID to 112244


Was able to get it working on Snow Leopard (OSX 10.6 32-bit) on MacBook and Lion (OSX 10.7 64-bit) on a iMac.
Can we have OSX support back?


Many thanks in advance :P

My bad.

Binaries can be downloaded from http://www.karlrunge.com/x11vnc/bins/
I was using x11vnc-0.9.14_TEST_MACOSX_10.6_OR_LATER_i386-apple-darwin_10.8.0.32bit , not the X11 version.

Anyway, I downloaded the 32-bit non X11 binary (x11vnc-0.9.14_TEST_MACOSX_10.6_OR_LATER_i386-apple-darwin_10.8.0.32bit ) from http://www.karlrunge.com/x11vnc/bins/


And was able to build a working OSX InstantSupport.dmg.
