How to compile Windows hosted version ?

Hi there,

I'm just trying to compile the windows hosted version and I got stuck (most probably because I'm not experienced enough).
Therefore I could use some help, so it would be nice if some of you could answer my questions:

1. I'm currently trying to create the Windows hosted build using the AROS trunk. Unfortunately I don't know whether the code still works for this build so if there's a specific SVN revision which is known to work for the Windows hosted build I'm would like to know that revision (this way it allows to rule out potential problems) ?

2. What I've done so far to setup my environment:

* Complete installation of Mingw
* Copied the NETPBM from GnuWin32 into the MINGW installation
* Installed Python 2.7.2 and added it to the path

Running the ./configure doesn't pass through as it mentioned that 'as' is required. I'm wondering about it as I can call it directly on the commandline without any problem. Here are the last lines of the ./configure output, so maybe one of you folks got an idea what might be wrong:

***
checking for windres... /mingw/bin/windres
checking for ld.exe... dirname: extra operand `/programme/mingw/bin/../lib/gcc/mingw32/4.5.2/../../../../mingw32/bin/ld.exe'
Try `dirname --help' for more information.
no
checking for ld... /mingw/bin/ld
checking for i386-aros-as... no
configure: error: as is required to build AROS. Please install and run configure again.
***

3. Of course I've tried to solve my problems while googling before but I didn't manage to find a proper description how to setup the Windows hosted environment. Can anyone help me out on this ?

Bye
Kasimir

@pixie
OpenOffice provides a good PDF export feature which is one reason to use it.

@all
I've mailed Randy Vice two days ago but didn't receive any response. Is such a delay normal for a request ?

I know these examples. It would be ok if these examples would be used. What I mean f.e. is the explanation of different OS features using some examples. I want to get documents where a developer (especially non-amiga/aros/morphos ones) can have a look at and be able to understand how to create something.
It is clear that these documents will change in time but I personally believe in the future of AROS, so there should be good documentation since the bounties are generally used for additional features.
Additional (more detailed) documentation could make AROS more attractive to other developers so this is an important thing (documentation is unfortunately always underestimated). So I'm still waiting for other ideas.

Hi there,
I intend to start a bounty for documentation because I personally believe that there's need for additional documentation. One requirement for this documentation will be an OpenOffice document (so the stuff will be printable) and english documentation. But there's a simple question:
What do you guys think is needed mostly ?
Currently I've got the following docs in mind:

Developer Documentation:

- Setup and Programming with AROS (including an example project [maybe a stupid filesystem/datatype etc.]) This would considered to be an introduction into developing with AROS. Programming means: OS related stuff.

- A more detailed description of the AROS system (means the architecture, concepts, diversity across the different platforms)

User Documentation:

- Programming with AROS: GUI subsystem, IO handling etc. with some well documented examples.

- Something similar to the good old AmigaDOS manual.

Some notes: The text doesn't need to be free of grammatical faults so non-native-speakers should participating, too. The most important thing is the readability. When I'm capable to understand the content, it will qualify for the bounty.

Ciao

You're right. I've changed the encoding after the checkout so I checked out the complete source tree again. Et voila: it's working now. Thanks for the help.

I've tried to build 'contrib-AHI' before calling 'make'. Unfortunately this doesn't work either. Here's the result:

Building AROS.contrib-AHI-quick
Building AROS.contrib-AHI-configure
Making contrib-AHI-configure in contrib/AHI
make[1]: Für das Ziel »contrib-AHI-configure« ist nichts zu tun.
Building AROS.contrib-AHI-build_and_install-quick
Making contrib-AHI-build_and_install-quick in contrib/AHI
if ! make PROGDIR="PROGDIR:" -q -C /home/aros/aros/AROS/bin/linux-i386/gen/contrib/AHI; then \
rm -rf /home/aros/aros/AROS/bin/linux-i386/gen/contrib/AHI/.installed && \
make PROGDIR="PROGDIR:" -C /home/aros/aros/AROS/bin/linux-i386/gen/contrib/AHI && \
make PROGDIR="/home/aros/aros/AROS/bin/linux-i386/AROS/" bindir=/home/aros/aros/AROS/bin/linux-i386/AROS sbindir=/home/aros/aros/AROS/bin/linux-i386/AROS libdir=/home/aros/aros/AROS/bin/linux-i386/AROS/Development/lib includedir=/home/aros/aros/AROS/bin/linux-i386/AROS/Development/include oldincludedir=/home/aros/aros/AROS/bin/linux-i386/AROS/Development/include -C /home/aros/aros/AROS/bin/linux-i386/gen/contrib/AHI install && touch /home/aros/aros/AROS/bin/linux-i386/gen/contrib/AHI/.installed; \
fi

One thing that seems suspicious to me is the make-commandline with the 'PROGDIR:' within a value. It this a correct value ?

I've changed the encoding from UTF-8 to Latin-1 (hope, this is right) but it didn't help.

@Georg
Of course, the 'contrib' code has been checked out, too. But I ran into a problem compiling it using the SDL library so I removed it (I didn't thought that the code was depending on the 'contrib' code). However I've reinserted the 'contrib' code and the following part describes the failure:

Making linklibs-SDL-config in contrib/SDL
make[1]: Für das Ziel »linklibs-SDL-config« ist nichts zu tun.
Making linklibs-SDL in contrib/SDL
Compiling SDL_error.c
...
Compiling SDL_video.c
make[1]: *** Keine Regel vorhanden, um das Target »/home/aros/aros/AROS/bin/linux-i386/AROS/Development/include/devices/ahi.h«,
benötigt von »/home/aros/aros/AROS/bin/linux-i386/gen/contrib/SDL/SDL_ahiaudio.o«, zu erstellen. Schluss.
make --no-print-directory TOP=/home/aros/aros/AROS CURDIR=contrib/SDL TARGET=linklibs-SDL --file=mmakefile linklibs-SDL failed: 512
Error: Error while running make in contrib/SDL: No such file or directory
make: *** [all] Fehler 10

Maybe anyone knows a solution for this.

Hi there, I'm trying to compile AROS but I'm failing permanently. What I've done:

1. checked out latest AROS sources
2. call './configure'
3. call 'make'

The compiling process fails while stopping at the workbench/classes/zune/betterstring/mcc/BetterString code.So I would like to know if there are any tags or branches of the sourcestream I should use ? Does anyone other has a similar problem or am I just too stupid ?

btw. I'm using SUSE Linux 10

Thanks. That worked fine for me. Would be better if these mirrors were mentioned on the official AROS.org site.

Hi there, may sound a bit weird but I cannot access AROS. I've requested an account for the SVN repository but it didn't arrive yet. So I've tried to download the nightly build instead to start becoming familiar with the whole system. But the download always stops before the archive will be transferred completely. So are these the only ways to access AROS or is there any alternative way ?
