### #ActualCommodore256

Posted 13 February 2012 - 11:50 AM

Hey, I'm new here and I have issues with SDL_mixer in Windows.

My problem is I HATE IDES! I My favourite IDE is GCC/G++ and a Text Editor.

The UI of IDEs just gets in my way and It's easier for me to use flags than to have a menu system that's it's easy to break things.

That's a problem with SDL_mixer, they only have static libs for Visual C++, not MinGW

They do have a source code where it's too much BS to look for buildtime dependencies in Windows.

In Linux that's easy,

# apt-get build-dep libsdl-mixer-1.2

In Windows, I have to find out what the dependencies are, find them, find out what are the dependencies for my dependencies, find them, etc. (apt automates that stuff)

So, I would like to know a solution to this that doesn't involve building dependencies or using visual studio.
