Building From Source using GCC on windows

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys!

I havent really done much building of open source code, and when i have ive been lucky enough to have to do it in Visual Studios which is a familiar compiler to me, however at the moment i have been asked to get a windows build of the latest version of [url="http://developer.berlios.de/project/showfiles.php?group_id=8334"]Source Navigator[/url] and i'm really struggling! I've also just started this job and would like to make a good impression.

I downloaded the source and followed the instructions and installed MING32 - get, which should have given me all the resources that i need. Now im managing to run the MingW2 terminal and ive managed to run the configure files but its coming up that it cant find certain directories in a certain file. Below i have provided the current error and the script file but i think it would be hard to narrow down the error from that. I'm more wondering if anyone here has any experience compiling using these methods aka MingW32 and MSYS on a windows machine. What pitfalls and common errors there are?

My assumptions at the moment is that some errors are happening because the config files are trying to accesss /home/chris, and i assume this is a linux dir with the windows equivalent being C:/users/Chris and i simply need to find out where i can change the directory paths to reflect this?

Here is the current file that is failing (it says it fails on line 1032 which is the 3rd line from the bottom :( ):

Ok so i solved the initial directories issue by doing typing the following in the MSys terminal

mount C:/projects/sourcenav /home/chris

so that the compiler would reconize /home/chris as the source directory it got a bit further and stated that a certain variable wasnt defined, so i went into the file and defined it to the most logical value i could think of like so:

TCL_LIB_SUFFIX=".lib"


now i am getting an error that it cant find the Tcl configuration definitions so im guessing my guess at the suffix was wrong, im going to see if i can find any files that might be the definition and use that extension as the suffix...so really im going to try more stabbing in the dark! :)

I think im going down the road of specific errors with this specific software now so if anyone happens upon this post and has built SourceNavigation before and would like to offer any tips i would be really grateful and the same goes for anyone who wants to point out that im doing very bad things (like possibly the above mount) then i would also be really grateful!

Thanks to anyone who can offer advice, Chris

ive attatched the latest output![attachment=2357:error.png]

Your mileage may vary, but opening the makefile in Code::Blocks and trying a compile from there - if it works - might be a less painful and time-consuming experience.

Hmm i must confess i haven't used code blocks before either, do i need to install a plugin for it to open a make file? it doesn't seem to recognize them...sorry to be so noobish

-Edit-

The only MakeFiles that i have are .in...i assume that i would be having better luck if they were .mak???

-UPDATE-

I finally got everything to work, i didn't go the code blocks route in the end, i stuck with the MingW32 and here were the main things i had to do to get sourcenav to build (which i will probably put up on my website or something)

-First i changed my user account from chris pepper to chris_pepper, because it kept trying to access %USER_NAME but linux or in this case the linux simulator HATES spaces!
-Finally the configure succeeded

Now it was time to run the make (i suppose this is where i could have brought in code blocks but i stuck with mingw23)

and i got a shedload of errors like "expect l value on right side" which i recognized and i found the code to have things like this

(int*)foo = 4;

which after getting over the initial eww i realized something more horrible that this code was pre-C99 standard so then i was a little stuck again. Until i discovered i could roll back the gcc version, i ran the command listed on this [url="http://mingw-users.1079350.n2.nabble.com/How-do-I-install-mingw-gcc-3-4-5-td5604746.html"]website[/url]. And ran the make again,

Then i was met by some error like "wrong type for argument 3 of function" so i went to those files and worked out that the functions had a 0 and were expecting a type that didn't explicitly convert im assuming again this code used to work when int was some form of default convert???? i dont really know but i sent it an uninitialized version of that particular type...which i felt bad about but i wasn't sure what else i could do as i couldn't initialize to 0 :P.

after a few more things like the above, it finally built! and even more surprisingly ran! and seems relatively stable, Im sure that the unit variable must cause problems somewhere but so far so good! even if im not a great fan of the actual software i have achieved in building, i think i would prefer to just use eclipse!

Anywho all in all it was quite the frustrating but slightly enlightening experience, i learnt a little more about linux (as i did try building it on linux in virtual box) a little more about command line compiling and most of all i learnt to appreciate modern IDEs and there features! my hats go off to the guys that cope with compiling through command line interfaces!

-Thanks, Chris

Next time, consider trying Cygwin. It's great for using Linuxish stuff on Windows.
[/quote]

I did use it a little, but i seemed to be getting similar problems to the ming32 method, i assume because it was actually problems with the source code itself above all else. In the end we had 3 people trying to build it, one on Linux itself in virtual box, one using ming32 (me) and one using Cygwin. It turned out that i got a working exe first but in all fairness id been stabbing in the dark longer.

I think i would happily use Ming32 again as i don't have any particular grudges against it (actually once i got used to it, it was pretty powerful) but i don't think i shall try building that particular source again :P

Thanks for your suggestion!
