RE: Glib compilation on windows 10



Thanks for replying

I have installed msys2-x86_64 from http://msys2.github.io/ and got mingw-w64-gtk2 from 
https://github.com/Alexpux/MINGW-packages

I have edited my environment variables with adding C:\msys\mingw32\bin to PATH
And I have set pkg_config_path  to C:\msys\mingw32\lib\pkgconfig

I have changed libpath in my perl config.pm with adding  C:\msys\mingw32\lib (since defining an INCLUDE 
environment variable does not work)

From the downloaded glib package from cpan:

Running perl Makefile.pl gives
Warning: Warning (mostly harmless): No library found for -pthread

I add this to the INC in the makefile produced 
-IC:/msys/mingw32/include -IC:/msys/mingw32/lib/glib-2.0/include -IC:/msys/mingw32/include/glib-2.0 
(without these , header files are not found)

But the compilation still fails with 
' => {  }, 'DL_VARS' => []);"
[ LD blib\arch\auto\Glib\Glib.xs.dll ]
Glib.o:Glib.c:(.text+0x12a0): undefined reference to `g_mutex_lock'

Hi there

I have to compile Gtk2 on windows 10 with strawberry perl.

I have unzip in a share U:\docs\backup\Gtk+ a Gtk 2.20.0 runtime 
environment for windows

I got Glib from CPAN and
Running perl Makefile.pl in the cpan/build dir gives

Including generated API documentation...
Warning (mostly harmless): No library found for -lgobject-2.0 Warning 
(mostly harmless): No library found for -lglib-2.0 Warning (mostly 
harmless): No library found for -lintl Warning (mostly harmless): No 
library found for -lgthread-2.0 Generating a dmake-style Makefile 
Writing Makefile for Glib Writing MYMETA.yml and MYMETA.json

Since some header files were not found, I add this to the generated 
makefile INC = -I. ... -IU:\docs\backup\Gtk+\include 
-IU:\docs\backup\Gtk+\include\glib-2.0 
-IU:\docs\backup\Gtk+\lib\glib-2.0\include

That warning said that library files were not found, not that headers weren't found; I would try to make sure 
that the Glib module installer can find the libraries it needs to link against before going further.

Where did you source the GTK+ runtime environment that you're using, and does it include a copy of libglib 
file?  What version of libglib is included?

FYI, the GTK project is now recommending that you use MSYS2 [1] on Windows for installing Windows versions of 
GTK+ libraries.  I don't have any experience with it however.

Thanks,

Brian
