A forum for technical support discussion related to Fogbugz.
I seem to recall there is (or was) a binary component to FogBugz. Is that no longer the case in 6? I am trying to decide what to do about upgrading. We have an older installation running on some Linux variant, and I would like to move that over to a new Mac OS X Snow Leopard server. However, I don't want to commit to that transition (up+crossgrade) if I don't have a decent chance of success. Is there an ETA for 7?
I've spent some time trying to get FB 6.1.46 ready for a OSX 10.6.1 server, and the problem I've hit is getting mono up. Installing mono via port or svn fails to compile. This may not be a FB issue per se but it's a dealbreaker none the less.
See http://go-mono.com/forums/#nabble-p25356442, http://trac.macports.org/ticket/20894. A few workarounds are described, but nothing works for me yet.
OK, so just to be clear, there is no version of FogBugz for the current version of Mac OS X, therefore FB cannot be installed on a newly purchased Mac server (since all new machines ship with 10.6). The current version of FB for Mac has not been officially tested, but informal attempts to install it have failed (or at least met with problems) and the upcoming version is still (obviously) upcoming, but with no ETA.
I have to say, I find this a little disappointing. The ability to run on a variety of servers and switch them around if need be was a big selling point for FB. It also seems to run counter to current claims of FogCreek software. It seems like this information should be made a little clearer (i.e., mentioned) on your website. Obviously, our FB purchase predates 10.6, but it would have been nice to know before committing to a hardware purchase that we would not be able to migrate all our services to the new machine.
