Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 814512
Last modified: 2012-05-02 00:55:17 EDT
Description of problem:
Am I correct in assuming Fedora 17 is lacking a mingw64-pdcurses package?
There is a mingw32-pdcurses package, but I can't spot its mingw64 counterpart.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
There currently is no mingw64-pdcursus as nobody has started porting it to the new MinGW packaging guidelines yet: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/MinGWCrossCompiler (these drafts were approved by the FPC some days ago). Perhaps you are interested in helping to port this package to the new packaging guidelines?
Created attachment 579005 [details]
This is a brute-force hack to add mingw64 to this packages.
[Diff against current mingw-pdcurses/master git]
I could apply this to git (master and f17) if this would be OK to you.
Excellent work :)
Two minor things:
- The mingw_build_win32 and mingw_build_win64 globals aren't needed any more and can be removed
- The summary for the mingw32-pdcurses package got changed to 'Curses library for MinGW64'. Shouldn't this be MinGW32?
Feel free to commit to master and f17 after you've made these two minor changes.

Done ... I also changed the patch's name into mingw-*.
