Hello, We're distributing an OS X application using Monobjc's <mkbundle> and <mkappl> tasks. The <mkbundle> task embeds the .dll files that our app depends on. We would like to selectively blacklist certain .dlls from this process due to LGPL/licensing reasons. In other words, I want to embed one set of dlls, and load another set of dlls at runtime from standalone .dll files in our app bundle. I'd like to know the best way to achieve this.
I've attempted to add a <without-assemblies/> sub task to the NAnt.Monobjc.dll, which would let me blacklist one or more dlls (patch attached). This seems to work, but even after copying the non-embedded dll files into My.App/Contents/MacOS, they still can't be loaded at runtime. Instead I see the following message: ** (MyApp.exe:12143): WARNING **: The following assembly referenced from My.Embedded.dll could not be loaded: Assembly: My.NonEmbedded (assemblyref_index=6) Version: 1.0.0 Public Key: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx The assembly was not found in the Global Assembly Cache, a path listed in the MONO_PATH environment variable, or in the location of the executing assembly (//). So, what's the correct way to distribute a standalone Mac application that bundles and references LGPL assemblies? --Anthony
