default wxMSW installation

Two things.

1. Can I just download wxMSW and install it?

2. The first cvs command has "-r wxMSW" which is probably wrong.


The -mno-cygwin option doesn't appear to work with configure using this command line:

./configure --with-msw --enable-debug --enable-debug_gdb --disable-shared


./configure --with-msw --enable-debug --enable-debug_gdb --disable-shared -mno-cygwin

Neither does --mno-cygwin work:

./configure --with-msw --enable-debug --enable-debug_gdb --disable-shared --mno-cygwin

The error returned is:

$ ./configure --with-msw --enable-debug --enable-debug_gdb --disable-shared --mno-cygwin configure: error: unrecognized option: --mno-cygwin Try `./configure --help' for more information.

I have the most recent cygwin setup and use it daily for development (flightgear / jsbsim).

[solution] Set '-mno-cygwin' to the environment variables LDFLAGS, CXXFLAGS, and CFLAGS before you run configure.

$ export LDFLAGS='-mno-cygwin'
$ export CFLAGS='-mno-cygwin'
$ export CXXFLAGS='-mno-cygwin'
$ ./configure --with-msw --enable-debug --enable-debug_gdb --disable-shared

After his step, I had to fix "setup.h" to remove the definition of HAVE_LANGINFO_H

$ cd lib/wx/include/msw-ansi-debug-static-2.8/wx
$ emacs setup.h
$ cd ../../../../../
$ make

not working

i get following error:

Compiles. But the example???

After configure you need to do a make (maybe obvious to some but if you're used to MSVC it may not be). I get some warnings but no errors.

The hello world example doesn't compile for me:

 $ g++ -o hword hello_world.cpp  wxWidgets-2.8.9/wx-config --cxxflags --libs --debug=yes
 cc1plus: error: unrecognised debug output level "yes"
 cc1plus: error: unrecognized command line option "-fcxxflags"
 cc1plus: error: unrecognized command line option "-flibs"

You're missing the single quote around the config. However this isn't the end of the story as copy-pasting the g++ command

 $ g++ -o hello hello.cpp '../wxX11-2.8.10/wx-config --cxxflags --libs --debug=yes'
 g++: ../wxX11-2.8.10/wx-config --cxxflags --libs --debug=yes: No such file or directory

The file really is there:

 $ ls ../wxX11-2.8.10/wx-config

The following links the example ok (I took the actual arguments used by one of the samples and removed what I could by trial and error):

 g++ -o hello.exe hello.o -L/home/<path to wx>/wxX11-2.8.10/lib -mwindows -lwx_x11univd_core-2.8 \
                          -lwx_based-2.8 -lwxpngd-2.8 -lX11 -lXext -lSM -lwxzlibd-2.8

Unfortunately it won't run. gdb returns 0377. I'm guessing it may be a dll import error (the linker gives a warning about auto import). I've tried using ld instead of gcc for linking but there's a long list of unresolved symbols.

wx 2.9 SVN

Compiling requires editing of cygwin header:

If you get error:

// line 218-219: comment out the "extern C" directive.

/*extern "C" */void *_GdipStringFormatCachedGenericDefault;
/*extern "C" */void *_GdipStringFormatCachedGenericTypographic;

Then delete defect file and continue buliding wx:

rm coredll_msw_graphics.o
