Build CSFML with MSYS2\MinGW-w64
« on: November 02, 2014, 10:02:04 pm »
Hello.
Basically, I'm struggling to build CSFML from sources for the last two days. And I was quite succesful up until the moment when I was actually trying to "make" the library.

So, what I did was - got SFML 2.1 -> statically build it. During that process, I've got bunch of error with 'del' command missing, but I typed 'make' 5 or 6 times and SFML succesfully builded. (/bin/sh: del: command not found)

Then, I used cmake to create MSYS Makefiles. After that - typed make aaaaand that is the moment when I stuck.

This is the output:

collect2.exe: error: ld returned 1 exit status
(And then bunch of text in russian, which doesn't matter)

So, the questions are:
a) Is this a problem of my statically builded SFML, maybe those errors were not those, which I may ignore.
b) If it is - how does one builds SFML statically without such annoying things.
c) If it's a problem with CSFML and SFML is builded correctly- how to fix it?

P.S. Sorry for my english in advance :)

Are you building SFML/CSFML 2.1, or a more recent revision? If 2.1, for what reason?

I'm building 2.1, for no particular reason - I just grabbed sources from the sites and began my attempts to build them on Windows. I can move to a more recent revision anytime.

Why don't you use the precompiled binaries?

I can, and everything is fine, but I want to understand why doesn't it work and to get it done. And also if it's a bug of some sort, then it could be quit nice to reveal it.

Allright, I have downloaded and builded sources from GitHub and everything is just fine, I have succesfully compiled both SFML and CSFML. If it was a bug, than it is fixed by now. But thank you for your fast replies. :)

Hello Kreol, could you please give me a hand on how to compile SFML for MSYS2 ? I don't know how to do it.
