I am trying to find a way to install MinGW on Linux to compile Windows programs from Linux. I have been able to install 3.4.5 but would like to install 4.4.0
Has anyone been able to do this? Is this version out for Linux? I have been trying for the past 5 hours to install MinGW 4.4.0 under Windows but couldn't figure it out (mostly the lack of utilities built into Windows).
Currently I am writing a gtkmm3 GUI in netbeans and using a linux dev server to compile linux binaries as I go. As I really want my final program to be cross platform, I set up a dev server specifically for compiling windows apps in linux. I am using the custom repo listed here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64-archlinux but I am having trouble using pkg-config.
I've notice that we have LAPACK dev libraries in the ubuntu repos but I was hoping to compile it for both ubuntu and windows using mingw.
my build system is hosted on ubuntu so I'd like to keep compiling on that server without having to send a build process to a windows machine so I was wondering if anyone here might know how I might do that?
I'm working on a project for a computer science class. I wrote the code and tested it using MinGW, and it works fine. I then copied the code over to the university's Linux server and tested it there, since that's what my professor grades assignments on.
Though I am new to this forum, I have used Linux since Corel put a package on the market many years ago and I normally load Cygwin as a matter our course on any PC with which I work or any PC I own. That being said, I spent a couple of days trying to figure out why I could not find exim4 after downloading Cygwin 64 (always downloaded Cygwin 32 in the past). Finally downloaded Cygwin 32 and VOILA!
I just downloaded CYGWIN for Windows 8. I'm using it because my professor wants us to do everything through the command line and I'm used to the linux setup on the computers in our labs, as opposed to trying to figure out cmd commands that go with the linux. When I open CYGWIN and type "ls" nothing shows up.
