Mingw is not likely to be re-enabled for groovy. If you're interested in committing time to re-enable it, please let us known - we can assist.

Overview

Installation

Mingw Cross

You can of course install the mingw cross environment directly yourself following the instructions at the mingw cross home page. Alternatively:

> roscd mingw_cross
> make install       # downloads, installs into ~/mingw 
                     # compiles gcc, apr, apr-util, log4cxx, boost, qt
                     # adds mingw_cross binary path to PATH in ~/.bashrc
> make uninstall     # remove ~/mingw and delete modifications in ~/.bashrc

Installation location can be moved if the MINGW_INSTALL_PREFIX environment variable is set before running make install.

Further build recipes can be compiled into the toolchain by simply switching to the mingw root and making the appropriate target. A list of packages that can be installed can be found here. To build wxwidgets for example,

cd ~/mingw
make wxwidgets
