Re: [Mingw-msys] forking issue on Windows XP?




Dear Cesar,

thanks for your help. Unfortunately, there are still issues.

 > Use the msysdvlpr command to enter the MSYS Build Environment.

I don't have that. This script is contained in 
msysDVLPR-1.0.0-alpha-1.tar.gz which I am supposed to unpack to /msys. 
But /msys/bin will only be on the PATH when I am already in the MSYS 
build environment. Kind of a chicken and egg problem. But I was able to 
enter the MSYS build environment using the patched version of start.bat.

I have passed some other issues and was able to do a successful 
configure + make in my /msys directory.

But where do I go from here? What have I built now? How can I install 
this? I mean, do I know have some new .exe file which I can use to setup 
my MSYS-snapshot environment?

Regards,
Torsten
