Re: Newbie needs help using mingw with cygwin
Sorry I did take it a wee bit personally, cheers for clarifying :)
At the moment I'm out of my depth with the whole cygwin mingw stuff.
I had thought that by modifying my etc/profile to pick up mingw istead of the
GCC bundled in cygwin I would still be able to use the cygwin environment but
just have mingw do the compiling (doing GCC --version in cygwin gives me 4.1).
The ./configure script checks for the installation of certain programs, after
changing the etc/profile file it suddenly doesn't find those programs
I think I'm really not getting it (which included even managing to start a new
thread when I wanted to reply to one, great!), I don't understand why the
configure script suddenly doesn't find the programs, I'll have a really good
look in the forums but suspect I'm going to go to linux to do the builds.
All the best
