Re: Mingw - Minsys - glib 2.40.0 error with /home/keith [CLOSED]


About this problem :
/bin/grep: /home/keith/staged/mingw32/lib/ No such file or directory /bin/sed: can't read /home/keith/staged/mingw32/lib/ No such file or directory libtool: link: `/home/keith/staged/mingw32/lib/' is not a valid libtool archive

I tried to pragmatically track back to the problem.

There is a problem with minsys-libintl and minsys-libintl (Maybe make more test to ensure to us that the problem is really on the two implementation of intl).

Procedure to reproduce the bug :
With a Windows 7 machine (32 bit) (actually, you can test with all version compatible with Mingw32) :
  - Install Mingw32 with options :
    - Basic Setup / mingw-developer-toolkit
    - Basic Setup / mingw32-base
    - Basic Setup / mingw32-gcc-g++
    - Basic Setup / msys-base
    - All Packages / mingw32-libz (dev and dll)
    - Maybe All Packages / minsys-zlib (I am not sure)

- Don't forget to add C:\MINGWINSTALLDIRECTORY /mingw in /etc/fstab on your msys. - Compile and install libffi (3.1, ./configure --prefix=/mingw). There is no problem. - Try to compile Glib 2.40.0. Use LIBFFI_CFLAGS and LIBFFI_LIBS to not use pkg-config. - Actually, the configure script is ok. But when you try to make, it's stopped at compilation. - When you remove -lintl in config.status, the make script continue to a rand_s error.

- If you compile and install the last version of gettext which replace the intl, and try to compile again, you don't have error about libiconv.

Conclusion :
- The error is not about glib, so excuse me for the disturb. I will contact mingw support. - There is a rand_s error. I saw the bug report about it and I took the patch. - I have others error, but these will be subjects of more tests and maybe a new subject in this ML.

Good bye.
