Build issues with make on Cygwin hosted MinGW (2.48.1)
Closed, ArchivedPublicPATCH


This patch resolves some issues related to building Blender with make on Cygwin hosted MinGW.

Build System
OS: Windows 98 SE
RAM: 512 MB
Video Card: ASUS GeForce 6200 AGP 8x

NOTE: tested using presumed build defaults (with GameEngine, without FFMPEG).

This patch was made against and tested with the 2.48.1 Release source. It contains the following changes-

removes instructions for making and cleaning freepy.a from dlltool/Makefile

in source/, changes NAN_PYTHON_LIB (when FREE_WINDOWS is true) to point to $(NAN_PYTHON)/lib/lib25_vs2005/libpython25.a, resolving Python related linker errors.

adds CPPFLAGS += -I$(NAN_GLEW)/include to source/gameengine/GamePlayer/common/windows/Makefile , to resolve error concerning missing glew.h when building GameEngine

Event Timeline

I should note that I have not done in-depth testing of the resulting Blender build, as I am still a novice of the Blender interface.

kent, I'm assigning this to you.
