MinGW

MinGW is minimalist GNU for Windows.[1]

For general tools, here are some recommendations:

  • svn: for commandline svn, try this:
     http://subversion.tigris.org/files/documents/15/44049/Setup-Subversion-1.5.3.msi

for windows explorer integrated, try this:

     http://downloads.sourceforge.net/tortoisesvn/TortoiseSVN-1.5.5.14361-win32-svn-1.5.4.msi?download
  • text editing: use an editor that handles unix line endings and preserves them. Examples include notepad++, vim (included in msys), and emacs.

Setting up MinGW

A tutorial for how to set up a MinGW build environment.

  • Install MinGW base system only
     http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=2435&package_id=240780
  • Install MSYS (Be sure to grab the current release installer, not the tech preview.)
     http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=2435&package_id=24963
  • Install msysDTK directly over msys (direct link to file)
     http://downloads.sourceforge.net/mingw/msysDTK-1.0.1.exe?modtime=1041430674&big_mirror=1
  • Install m4-1.4.7-MSYS into your msys /bin
     http://downloads.sourceforge.net/mingw/m4-1.4.7-MSYS.tar.bz2?modtime=1162303978&big_mirror=1
  • Install strawberry perl in default location
     http://strawberryperl.com/
  • Set the environment variable INTLTOOL_PERL=/path/to/strawberry/bin/perl by adding the following line to c:\msys\1.0\etc\profile:
     export INTLTOOL_PERL=/c/strawberry/perl/bin/perl

Setting up Utilities

For all following instructions, when you run configure do it with --prefix=/mingw

  • install gnome versions of utilities (direct links below)
create a directory c:\msys\1.0\dev
add this line to your profile
     export PATH=$PATH:/dev/bin:/c/mingw/bin    
unpack everything there
you need these utilities at this point:
all these are from http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/dependencies/
 pkg-config: http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/dependencies/pkg-config-0.23-2.zip
 gettext: http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/dependencies/gettext-0.14.5.zip
 gettext-dev: http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/dependencies/gettext-dev-0.14.5.zip
 gettext-runtime: http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/dependencies/gettext-runtime-0.17.zip
 gettext-runtime-dev: http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/dependencies/gettext-runtime-dev-0.17.zip
  • add this line to your profile
     export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/dev/lib/pkgconfig
  • upgrade autoconf to 2.63 from source
     http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/autoconf/
  • upgrade automake to 1.9 from source
     http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/automake/

Compiling Sword

  • install libcurl
     http://curl.haxx.se/download.html
     (direct linke) http://www.gknw.net/mirror/curl/win32/curl-7.19.0-devel-mingw32.zip
     find curl-config script from linux and copy it to /mingw/bin
  • compile sword-1.5.11 from source
     use libcurl, not ftplib
     you will have to manually alter makefile to link against regex (do this in sword-1.5.11/lib/Makefile, line "#am__objects_3 = regex.lo", take out "#")
     compiling utilities is broken with mingw
     you do not need to compile with icu

Download Gnome Libraries

  • download lots of gnome libs and unpack them in dev
     for everything, you need the normal and developer package

  • setup xml2po
     install python 2.5
     ensure that python is on your path (windows environment variable)
     edit /dev/bin/xml2po shebang line to just say #! python
     install python libxml2 from here: http://users.skynet.be/sbi/libxml-python/binaries/libxml2-python-2.6.27.win32-py2.5.exe
  • install iconv
     You will need this version of iconv http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/libiconv.htm.
  • install gnome-icon-theme
     You may need to rename share/icons/gnome/ to share/icons/hicolor. This theme is required by the studypad

Compile Gnomesword

  • download gnomesword 2.4.1
  • alter configure script to allow compilation without scrollkeeper
  • update gnomesword to latest 2.4.x svn
  • run configure with --enable-gtkhtml --disable-scrollkeeper --prefix=/mingw
  • make
     you will have to alter the makefile in libs to link against libcurl.dll (-lcurl doesn't work)
  • make install
  • run gnomesword
  • getting gnomesword free from mingw is another topic.
  • Windows XP look

To get the windows XP look, go to /dev/share/themes/MS-Windows/gtk-2.0 copy gtkrc to /dev/etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc
