Problems compiling 0.4 in MinGW
« on: July 17, 2005, 01:28:28 pm »

Okay. So I'm having some problems here..

Whenever I try to build UQM using MinGW,  (./build.sh uqm config, etc) I get this:


Code:
$ ./build.sh uqm config
'echo -n' capable echo found.
Sed stream editor found.
tr found.
Make found.
GNU C compiler found.
windres found.
Little-endian machine detected.
build/unix/build.sh: sdl-config: command not found
build/unix/build.sh: sdl-config: command not found
Simple DirectMedia Layer not found.

So, I searched through these forums, found someone with the same problems as I had (fetid_breath), reproduced his error (he got the SDL sources instead of the mingw devkit), did a "./configure; make; make install", and that gave me the following error:

Code:
$ ./configure; make; make install

MAKE Version 5.2  Copyright (c) 1987, 1998 Inprise Corp.

That sounded bad. With some googling, I found out that that had to do something with Borland Delphi.. So I renamed the folder Delphi was in, and I got this error instead:

Code:
$ ./configure; make; make install
checking build system type... i686-pc-mingw32
checking host system type... i686-pc-mingw32

sh: make: command not found
sh: make: command not found

Erk? anyone knows what gives?

Edit: I got it fixed..
Reinstalled MSYS, apparantly, when it asked for the MinGW folder, I typed c:\mingw instead of c:/mingw (blame DOS! blame DOS!)
That did the trick... Let this topic remain here as an.. uuh.. reminder or whatever to people with the same errors... Smiley

However, now I got a new problem...
If I do "./configure; make; make install", I eventually get this error twice when making.
Code:
MAKE Version 5.2  Copyright (c) 1987, 1998 Inprise Corp.
Error makefile 842: Colon expected
*** 1 errors during make ***

Erk! I tried modifying the makefile, but nothing really helps.

Use GNU make instead of Borland/Inprise make (remove it from the search path). Also see bug 755.

And how exactly am I going to "use GNU make"?
When I remove Borland/Inprise make from the path= thing, "make" returns a "command not found"....

Huh? MSys should include GNU make by default. Make sure that make.exe is in the path.

The only *make.exe files I have in MingW folder are:
gnatmake.exe
gpr2make.exe
and mingw32-make.exe

No regular "make.exe" though.

Have you installed MSYS? You need to install MSYS after installing MinGW, as it provides a Unix-like environment to run build scripts in. make is a part of MSYS, not MinGW.

Try running mingw32-make instead of just make. That may help. Still, you should have a make.exe.

Ah. It seems that Msys renamed make.exe to mingw32-make.exe
Renaming it back to make.exe and then just doing MAKE INSTALL did it..

Thanks for the help. Smiley

On my installation, mingw32-make.exe and make.exe are two different programs. Apparently, MSYS installs a slightly different make of its own to replace MinGW make.
