I am now struggleing to get back compile as it insistes to compile xlib.
The problem seems to be the X installation that comes with Cygwin. I
will have to force the winlib evironment. It looks a bit strange to me
that the system automatically detects that it has to build a window
server, so it uses win32, but tries o combine this with xlib. But I
think this can be resolved with the correct configure switches, which I
have to look up.
To keep you informed of my progress. Starting configure with the correct
parameters did the trick:
configure --enable-server=win32 --enable-graphics=winlib
As Cygwin has also the ablility to compile GNUstep for the X window
system, it is fine, that you have to specify which one you want.
(Although I would prefer win32 as the default and the mixed state I had
yesterday when only setting one switch was horrible)
Now I have problems with the path conversion. GNUstep make did set my
GNUstep system directory to c:/GNUstep/System. And now applications are
looking for the backend bundle in a directory below this. This path is
not recognized as being an absolute one and so the loading of the
backend bundle fails. I could of course change the setting in the
GNUstep.sh, but as this is now a valid Cygwin path, I wanted to change
the file handling in NSFileManager to convert this path correctly.
Currently we only do conversions for the file names on MinGW, so I tried
to switch the condition to #ifdef __WIN32__, but for unknown reasons
this condition did not hold on CYGWIN. Can anybody explain this to me?
From the gcc specs I can tell, that this define should be set.
With all this problems for cygwin I am now considering using Adams tip
and installing GNUstep with the Windows Installer. Frustrating to fail
even as a GNUstep developer to bootstrap GNUstep on Cygwin.
