Building OLA for Windows
This describes how to get OLA compiled for windows, it's a work in progress.
Install Mingw, msys & build tools
The instructions at http://www.mingw.org/wiki/MSYS are very helpful. There are similar instructions at http://www.cccp-project.net/wiki/index.php?title=Installing_MSYS-MinGW
- Install mingw and msys
- Launch the msys shell
- Unpack autoconf, automake and libtool to a directory of your choice.
- Install each of them with the following command:
$ ./configure --prefix=/mingw && make && make install
- Update PKG_CONFIG_PATH
As all the libraries will be installed in /mingw, PKG_CONFIG_PATH must be set.
Open the file /etc/profile (C:\msys\1.0\etc\profile) with your favorite editor (make sure it uses LF line endings) and add:
You might also want to set CFLAGS. Safe options for MinGW are:
CFLAGS="-pipe -O2 -mms-bitfields -march=i686"
export HOME LOGNAME MSYSTEM HISTFILE
and modify that line by adding the variables:
export HOME LOGNAME MSYSTEM HISTFILE CFLAGS PKG_CONFIG_PATH
Now restart MSYS. You should now be able to use MSYS without problems.
This is the biggest part of the job.
See http://code.google.com/p/msysgit/, be sure to select "unix style carriage returns" otherwise you'll get autoconf errors.
