Incomplete packaging guidelines:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/MinGW

This contains the MinGW root filesystem and some core libraries.

Comment 1 Harry Waye 2008-09-18 14:33:51 UTC
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 14:43:57 UTC
One further note, pthreads would be a welcome addition.

Comment 4 Harry Waye 2008-10-16 17:46:10 UTC
Excellent, your a star.  Thanks for the update.

I packaged up win32-pthreads separately:
http://www.annexia.org/tmp/mingw/fedora-9/src/SRPMS/mingw32-pthreads-2.8.0-2.fc9.src.rpm

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 2008-10-25 00:59:19 UTC
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 09:18:58 UTC
Do you have a spec file for boost, re comment 7?

I have a pretty rubbish one:
http://hg.et.redhat.com/misc/fedora-mingw--devel?cmd=manifest;manifest=c1faf15c38245919737c88541c025a9e9dc1bea0;path=/boost/
It builds just enough to work with Inkscape, but it extremely hacky.

Comment 9 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-10-27 09:19:13 UTC
s/it/is/

Comment 10 Harry Waye 2008-10-27 12:45:06 UTC
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.
