In Topic: How do I do the Canadian Cross? (Compile a windows exe from linux)

19 March 2012 - 02:22 AM

It's interesting that google came up with several step-by-step examples on the first page when I entered "mingw linux" in the search box. There appears to be many pages of results.


Yeah, but It's weird I use Mingw in Linux but there's too many hoops to jump through to try to get it to work. I spent an a whole day trying to figure it out what's going wring, but it works with windows.

I guess it's not worth pursuing because it's wasting production time to try to get a distraction-free environment that linux offers. (because there's no steam on my old laptop)

Right, that would be like going from Wintel Linux to Sparc Solaris.

Anyway, I tried the i586-mingw32msvc-g++ and I keep on getting linker errors I'm looking for an in depth guide on using it with libraries and I don't get those linker errors when I try to cross compile, but I don't get them when I do it nativity.

Update: I've found a good solution for compiling, but bad for debugging if you're using mac only Libs.

Yeah, I know what you mean.

I used to be an OSX /PowerPC fan, (But I kept the avatar) but apple's going away from the geeks and going for consumers.

Another thing about the "Mountain Lion King", It will have a thing like UAC Called the "Gatekeeper" and you can't install unsigned apps with it unless you click a button to allow it.

Where's the Keymaster when you need him?

I like PowerPC, but I heard Mountain Lion won't even support older Intel Macs. (except the Mac Pro, it supports the 2008 Mac Pro)

List of supported Macs:
iMac (mid 2007 or later)
MacBook (13-inch Aluminum, 2008), (13-inch, Early 2009 or later)
MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid-2009 or later), (15-inch, 2.4/2.2 GHz), (17-inch, Late 2007 or later)
MacBook Air (Late 2008 or later)
Mac Mini (Early 2009 or later)
Mac Pro (Early 2008 or later)
Xserve (Early 2009)

I think it's due to 32-bit EFI and crappy Video Cards in previous Macs. But yeah, just get a used 09' Mac Mini if you just can't borrow it from the Computer Lab.
