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

Isn't windows hosted (mingw32-i386) usually built on Linux..?

In theory it should be possible with mingw but i never had the courage to try.

I prefer to use (real) linux for that.

I see, the main issue is the poor (as in there is no such thing) dependency manager on Cygwin, so not only mmake configuration, but also no clear idea of what to install.

I will try under Linux mint, hopefully it will work better. I am using the gimmearos scripts from AROS archives. Should they fail, I think there is a scripts dir into the source tree.

It's going to be interesting anyway

Ah. last time i checked the gimme aros script there was no support for mingw.

Hence i did not dared to attempt to do things manually.

I can compile windows hosted on my pi, so you should be good to go (be aware that sometimes things do get broke in trunk though).

Well, at first I used the script as a reference for the dependencies. That's the only place where I can find a comprehensive list. Unfortunately, those are only top level dependencies, God only knows how many more I'd need.
Setting up a Linux box.
Thanks everyone
