Incomplete packaging guidelines:

This contains the MinGW root filesystem and some core libraries.
Comment 1 Harry Waye 2008-09-18 10:33:51 EDT
You SRPM link should be fc8.  Also, have you any plans to add some C++ libraries?  ie boost or gtkmm?
Comment 2 Harry Waye 2008-09-18 10:43:57 EDT
One further note, pthreads would be a welcome addition.
Comment 4 Harry Waye 2008-10-16 13:46:10 EDT
Excellent, your a star.  Thanks for the update.

I packaged up win32-pthreads separately:

I did gtkmm - it's in our development repository.

Boost is a fscking nightmare.  People who write their own build
systems should be shot.  Or maybe since they have to program in
C++ they've been punished enough already.
Comment 7 Harry Waye 2008-10-24 20:59:19 EDT
I have spoken to certain people in the #boost irc chat room and have compiled boost against your packages.  It works with some additions to the boost.build scripts.  I'll try publish such things in a bit.
Comment 8 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-10-27 05:18:58 EDT
Do you have a spec file for boost, re comment 7?

I have a pretty rubbish one:
It builds just enough to work with Inkscape, but it extremely hacky.
Comment 9 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-10-27 05:19:13 EDT
Comment 10 Harry Waye 2008-10-27 08:45:06 EDT
I don't have time to look at it at the moment.  The person I spoke to in #boost was volodya.  It was also very hacky.  There were some tickets made for it on https://zigzag.lvk.cs.msu.su:7813/boost.build/ but I don't remember which ones.
