Hello, I've been trying to build SFML from source over the past few days (I'm used to just using Visual Studio, but I wanted to try using CLion with MinGW-w64.

While following the build tutorial on the main site, I unfortunately encountered an error that I have no idea how to solve. Here is Cmake and the error.



I hope someone will be able to share some insight on helping me solve the issue.

Do you have a graphics driver installed?

You're having some issues with your environment/path.

CMake somehow picked up some stuff from MinGW and some stuff from Cygwin. That shouldn't happen. Try removing Cygwin's bin dir  from your path, then try again starting from scratch.

eXpl0it3r - Yes, I just recently updated my Nvidia GeForce driver to GeForce Game Ready.

Mario - Ok, I will remove it from the path. How exactly do I start from scratch? Remove any files created in SFML_2.4.0_BUILD and clear Cmake's cache?

Thanks for the speedy responses!

Yes, that's the easiest way to do so.

Mario - Thank you very much, that did the trick. I think I'm going to make a video showing how to setup SFML with Clion, as it was quite a mess trying to figure it out with little knowledge of MinGW and Cmake.

Thanks again.
