Description

macOS Mojave 10.14.3

On any system with GateKeeper enabled (enabled by default and only possible to disable with Terminal or bypassable by right clicking > Open) Dolphin will not be allowed to open. This is a new issue, development builds used to open fine on macOS.

Should not be the case with newer builds.

Please try again with (a clean Applications folder and) https://dolphin-emu.org/download/dev/3c2ebec84eb7a0a8fa696baf866747eeddb575c1/ and up.

If it's not fixed, I'll reopen it.

Still occurring with 5.0-9664.

Are you running this from within the dmg image? If so you shouldn't.

Confirmed. Bisected with builds from the Downloads page, here is what I got. Also just to be clear, I did not use the updater, all builds are just straight downloads from the downloads page, which I then took out of the dmg and ran to see how gatekeeper would react. Using the "App Store and identified developers" Gatekeeper setting.

5.0-9301 works
5.0-9357 works
5.0-9413 works
5.0-9429 broken
5.0-9464 broken
5.0-9501 broken
5.0-5969 broken
5.0-9664 broken

This seems to be about when the buildbot initially failed, so it seems the new builds have a broken certificate. Confirming this is that the builds that work have "dolphin" within the dmg package, whereas the ones that fail have "Dolphin". That certainly implies a build configuration change!

EDIT: Oh right! System specs:

MacBook Pro 13in mid-2018 with Touch Bar
macOS 10.14.3 (fully up to date as of this writing)
Core i7-8559U @ 4.5ghz
Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655
16GB 2133MHz LPDDR3

Okay, retested from /Applications and ~/Downloads and it works fine.

Is there any reason I shouldn’t run it from the dmg? That always used to work in older development builds and it made bisecting without git easier.

#7 Updated by 8times9 11 months ago

Disregard my testing as MayImilae‘s suggests otherwise.

Though I’m still curious about running Dolphin from the dmg

This was fixed a while back and was caused by a buildbot issue. Most builds should be fine now (regardless if run from a DMG or not).
