Build from source where HOST is Linux and TARGET is Windows

Postby wytmoon » 10. Dec 2012, 07:21

Hi,

I can build from source in Ubuntu 12.04 for Linux targets but I was wondering if I can also build from Ubuntu 12.04 for Windows ( 7 or 8 ) targets?
Is it possible or can I only build Windows targets under Windows hosts?

Thanks for the help

Ok. I decided to build VBox on my Win 7 env instead. I followed the build instructions for Windows and started building the source using "cscript configure.vbs".
The following is the build log from VirtualBox and it seems I get stuck on a "Microsoft VBScript runtime error"

C:\Users\wytmoon\Documents\Research\Virtual Box\VirtualBox-4.2.4>cscript configure.vbs --with-MinGW32=C:\MinGW

I checked line 1507 of configure.vbs but there is no such thing as "2 Copyright" there.
Can someone help me with building for Windows 7?

Thanks for the help

The vbs script is incorrectly parsing the output from the mingw compiler. You can comment out the whole section that parses and compares the mingw version string.

may be you could execute configure.vbs on windows xp or Create a new file(AutoConfig.kmk) in accordance with the format like
# -*- Makefile -*-
#
# Build configuration generated by cscript configure.vbs --with-DDK=C:\WinDDK\7600.16385.1 --with-libSDL=*:\SDL-1.2.14 --with-MinGW32=*:\mingw --with-Qt4=*:\Qt\4.8.0 "--with-SDK=C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1" --with-python=*:\Python26 --with-openssl=*:\openssl --with-libcurl=*:\libcurl
