Cygwin on Windows x64
Fri Oct 21 18:05:00 GMT 2005
I'm trying to compile ClanLib with Cygwin on my Windows XP Professional
x64 Edition. On my Notebook with Win32 I sucessfully compiled ClanLib
with Cygwin, but on Win64 I've a problem executing the autogen.sh
script. The ClanLibbers recommended me to revisualize this problem here.
Perhaps it is a problem with automake, autoconf, auto*.
From the ClanLib user mailing list:
I read the following in 'INSTALL.mingw':
"You should also be able to compile ClanLib with Cygwin, the
./configure script will detect Cygwin and append the '-mno-cygwin
-DWIN32' flags to the compiler call."
"ClanLibs configure script should be able to detect a mingw or cygwin
environment automatically and setup everything according to that."
Ok, here we go, I've installed Cygwin on my Win64 (with all necessary
and optional packages):
Checked out revision 458.
Generating ./configure script, this may take a while...
Running aclocal, automake and autoconf...

Missing any packages? Any suggestion?
Thank you very much.
