xcode for 10.9.1?

#1 Post by bwaldow » Wed Sep 24, 2014 6:02 pm


Frankenpad 1 in my signature runs Mavericks 10.9.1. I haven't upgraded beyond that as later T61 Thinkpads lose sleep/wake beyond that. I have patched against the SSL bug, and I'd prefer to stay with what I have.

Apple will let me into the store, but the latest Xcode requires 10.9.4 and won't install. I'd like to start practicing Swift coding.

Can anyone offer a way for me to get an earlier Xcode 6 that runs with 10.9.1? The link in Apple's developer pages shows me earlier versions of Xcode, but only 5.x versions which pre-date Swift.

Frankenpad: T60/1 2.6Ghz Penryn C2D w/15" UXGA LED backlit LCD & NVS140M GPU
X61 Tablet 1.6Ghz SXGA (7769-A67)
T42 14" SXGA (2378-XXQ)

Why don't you make another partition with 10.9.4 on it, or boot off an external drive to run 10.9.4? Then you could practice X-Code there, and still have your old partition with 10.9.1 for everyday use with working sleep.
