  • FYI: I am using the non libmicrohttpd version as I am running macOS 10.11.6.

  • Ah sorry, that error means something was compiled using OS features that require a later version of macOS... I must have messed up somewhere. It's possible that the AMD version required a later OS version as I see now I only compiled xmr-stak with AMD support for 10.12+ whereas I compiled it with CPU only for earlier OS versions. It's been a little while though and I can't recall precisely what issues I ran in to along the way!
