First a caveat: I'm a windows programmer with only mild expertise on the mac. I dev primarily on windows, and port to Mac. So if you answer this question, you'll have to explain to me as if I were a child.
Now! I recently discovered that the version of SDL that I'm using is incapable of doing fullscreen on OSX Lion. Others say get the latest SDL, it's fixed. So I got the latest SDL.
When I add SDL to my projects, I don't do anything special-- I grab SDL.framework, and drag it into my project, and it all "just works."
But with the most recent SDL, when I do this, it doesn't work. The program crashes on startup with the message:
Library not loaded: @rpath/SDL.framework/Versions/A/SDL Referenced from: /Users/USER/Desktop/*/MyApp.app/Contents/MacOS/MyApp Reason: image not found
I have limited XCode expertise. I have tried removing SDL completely, re-adding it, adding it manually to the copy files and link with executable steps, all with the exact same results. One note: I do NOT have SDL installed on my system, and never have. I've always just used a copy of SDL.framework that I keep in my personal work folder, and never had any problems before.
Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
Again, to clarify: With my older version of SDL, it all works fine (but crashes on fullscreen). If I replace the older SDL.framework with a copy of the newer one, that's when it all goes to hell. Theoretically, nothing should have changed, right?
