Can't compile Musescore on Mac

• Jul 18, 2018 - 07:16

I followed all the instructions on… and am still unable to get Musescore to compile.

This includes
brew install libogg libsndfile libvorbis pkg-config portaudio jack lame cmake git
export PATH=$PATH:/Users/me/Qt/5.11.1/clang_64/bin

Doing qmake -v gives me
QMake version 3.1
Using Qt version 5.11.1 in /Users/me/Qt/5.11.1/clang_64/lib

I get this error when running make -f Makefile.osx release

Any ideas how to solve this?


What version of Xcode are you using ?
I was seeing similar errors with High Sierra decided it was safe to finally upgrade so im running a supported OS. HS likes to install Xcode 10. I’ve found it depreciates a number of libraries, also breaks a few other things including brew and ruby.

What worked here was to clean out the installed compilers and associated dependencies then reload Xcode 9.4 and associated command line tools.

With a Clean / Updated / reinstalled Ruby and brew reinstalled reloading the dependencies solved things.
