Subject: [gentoo-user] Cross Compiling in Gentoo
Date: Tue, 17 Jan 2012 06:56:59
1 Hi,
3 I have a question about cross compiling in Gentoo - specifically cross
4 compiling for W32/W64. I tried their preferred method and didn't like it, so I
5 downloaded the appropriate Mingw64 build files, set up a cross compile account,
6 with the appropriate paths, variables, etc. Most packages compile correctly
7 (though it sometimes takes some code hacking - and yes they do run in Win 7),
8 but there are some I can't seem to get to build properly - usually the ones
9 that have make files for MS Visual Studio. I have no interest in purchasing
10 Visual Studio.
12 My question is, does anyone know of any good resources (mailing lists, sites,
13 etc.) on cross compiling on a GNU/Linux platform for a W32/W64 platform? The
14 searches I've run have directed me to sites that talk about using MSYS and
15 Mingw on a W32 platform (I don't have all year to build a single package). I
16 am looking to build GraphicsMagick, and some helpful tools for W64 (though I'd
17 accept W32, if that's the only way).
