FreeBSD and TrueOS support


#1

Hi Jules and JUCErs everywhere!

I have recently switched from Arch Linux to TrueOS (which is based upon FreeBSD 12). I think its a great OS but I have been unable to get two of my fave FLOSS softsynths - Helm and TAL Noisemaker - to build because they both depend upon JUCE and it seems JUCE doesn’t support FreeBSD yet.

Here is a github ticket detailing my struggles so far in getting JUCE/helm to build under TrueOS:

https://github.com/mtytel/helm/issues/142

Has anyone here already been successful in getting JUCE to build and run under FreeBSD or TrueOS?

Would the JUCE devs accept patches for FreeBSD support if they were offered?

Thanks

Of course! (…assuming they weren’t too major!)
