32     <h3><a name="intro">1.&nbsp; Introduction</a></h3>
33    
34     <p>These are instructions for building libgig, linuxsampler and
35     gigedit on Windows (32 bit) with help of MinGW and MSYS. After the
36     MinGW and MSYS environment and the other prerequisites are installed,
37     the build procedure will be the same as in Linux, that is, basically:
38     ./configure ; make ; make install.</p>
39    
40     <p>The versions of the files to download are just the ones I used
41     before writing this text. You can probably use later ones if
42     available.</p>
43    
44     <p>Some of the instructions below are marked with ** and ***:</p>
45    
46     <p>** = only needed if you are going to build from CVS, not if you are
47     using the tar file releases</p>
48    
49     <p>*** = only needed if you are going to build gigedit</p>
50    
51    
52     <h3><a name="mingw">2.&nbsp; MinGW</a></h3>
53    
54     <p>Download the MinGW installer, MinGW-5.1.4.exe,
55     from <a href="http://www.mingw.org">www.mingw.org</a> and run it.</p>
56    
57    
58     <h3><a name="pkg">3.&nbsp; pkg-config and gtkmm</a></h3>
59    
60     <p>The pkg-config tool is needed by the configure script in all the
61     LinuxSampler packages. pkg-config is included in gtkmm, which is
62     needed by gigedit. (If you are not going to build gigedit, you can
63     download just GLib and pkg-config
64     from <a href="http://www.gtk.org">www.gtk.org</a>.)</p>
65    
66     <p>Download the gtkmm windows installer,
67     gtkmm-win32-runtime-2.14.1-3.exe,
68     from <a href="http://www.gtkmm.org">www.gtkmm.org</a>, and run it. Let
69     the installer adjust the PATH variable as it wants.</p>
70    
71    
72     <h3><a name="msys">4.&nbsp; MSYS</a></h3>
73    
74     <p>I use the 1.0.11 Technology Preview version, as I had problems
75     building DLLs with the 1.0.10 current version.</p>
76    
77     <p>Download from "MSYS Base System, Technology Preview: MSYS-1.0.11":</p>
78    
79     <pre>msysCORE-1.0.11-20080826.tar.gz
80     bash-3.1-MSYS-1.0.11-1.tar.bz2</pre>
81    
82     <p>Unpack these to a directory of your choice, for example C:\msys. As
83     1.0.11 doesn't have an installer yet, you need to have an unpacker
84     that supports tar.gz/tar.bz, for example 7-Zip. The rest of the files
85     you can unpack with the tar included in msysCORE.</p>
86    
87     <p>Run the postinstall\pi.bat file and specify your MinGW
88     directory.</p>
89    
90    
91     <p>Download from "MSYS Supplementary Tools, Technology Preview: Tools for
92     MSYS-1.0.11":</p>
93    
94     <pre>autoconf2.5-2.61-1-bin.tar.bz2 **
95     autoconf-4-1-bin.tar.bz2 **
96     automake1.10-1.10-1-bin.tar.bz2 **
97     automake-3-1-bin.tar.bz2 **
98     bison-2.3-MSYS-1.0.11-1.tar.bz2 **
99     crypt-1.1-1-MSYS-1.0.11-1.tar.bz2 **
100     cvs-1.11.22-MSYS-1.0.11-1-bin.tar.gz **
101     gettext-0.16.1-1-bin.tar.bz2 ***
102     gettext-0.16.1-1-dll.tar.bz2 ***
103     libiconv-1.11-1-bin.tar.bz2 ***
104     libiconv-1.11-1-dll.tar.bz2 ***
105     libtool1.5-1.5.25a-1-bin.tar.bz2
106     perl-5.6.1-MSYS-1.0.11-1.tar.bz2 ***</pre>
107    
108     <p>Download from "MSYS Supplementary Tools, Current Release:
109     msysDTK-1.0.1":</p>
110    
111     <pre>m4-1.4.7-MSYS.tar.bz2 **</pre>
112    
113    
114     <p>Extract all these files to the msys directory, by starting msys,
115     do "cd /" and use tar.</p>
116    
117    
118     <h3><a name="asio">5.&nbsp; ASIO SDK</a></h3>
119    
120     <p>Download asiosdk2.2.zip from Steinberg. Extract it to your msys
121     $HOME.</p>
122    
123    
124     <h3><a name="vst">6.&nbsp; VST SDK</a></h3>
125    
126     <p>If you want to build the LinuxSampler VST plugin, download
127     vst_sdk2_4_rev2.zip from Steinberg (note that you should not choose
128     version 3). Extract it to msys $HOME.</p>
129    
130    
131     <h3><a name="intl">7.&nbsp; intltool ***</a></h3>
132    
133     <p>Download intltool_0.40.4-1_win32.zip from
134     <a href="http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/binaries/win32/intltool">http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/binaries/win32/intltool</a></p>
135    
136     <p>Unzip this into the msys local directory, (C:\msys\local for
137     example)</p>
138    
139    
140     <h3><a name="perl">8.&nbsp; Perl ***</a></h3>
141    
142     <p>The perl in MSYS is lacking an XML parser which is needed by
143     intltool. Download ActivePerl
144     from <a href="http://www.activestate.com">www.activestate.com</a> and
145     install it.</p>
146    
147    
148     <h3><a name="xslt">9.&nbsp; xsltproc ***</a></h3>
149    
150     <p>The gigedit Makefile wants to build the gigedit quick start
151     documentation, so it needs the xsltproc command. Download from
152     <a href="ftp://ftp.zlatkovic.com/pub/libxml/">ftp://ftp.zlatkovic.com/pub/libxml/</a>:</p>
153    
154     <pre>libxml2-2.7.2+.win32.zip
155     libxslt-1.1.24.win32.zip</pre>
156    
157     <p>Copy the contents of the bin directories from both zip files to a
158     directory of your choice. Add this directory last in your msys PATH,
159     for example:</p>
160    
161     <pre>export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/xsltproc</pre>
162    
163    
164     <h3><a name="setup">10.&nbsp; MSYS setup</a></h3>
165    
166     <p>Add the gtkmm aclocal directory to the list of extra directories used
167     by autoconf (make sure the gtkmm path is the one where you installed
168     it):</p>
169    
170     <pre>echo "/c/Program Files/gtkmm/share/aclocal" >> /usr/local/share/aclocal/dirlist</pre>
171    
172    
173     <p>Make sure pkg-config will find the LinuxSampler libraries:</p>
174    
175     <pre>export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig</pre>
176    
177    
178     <p>*** The intltool scripts expect perl to be in /opt/perl/bin, so
179     make a link to the ActivePerl installation. Also add ActivePerl to
180     PATH:</p>
181    
182     <pre>mkdir -p /opt/perl/bin
183     ln -s /c/Perl/bin/perl.exe /opt/perl/bin
184     export PATH=/c/Perl/bin:$PATH</pre>
185    
186    
187     <p>*** MSYS gettext and gtkmm both include libintl. We want the gtkmm
188     version. Remove the MSYS files so the gettext configure tools don't
189     choose the wrong version:</p>
190    
191     <pre>rm /usr/local/include/libintl.h /usr/local/lib/libintl*</pre>
192    
193    
194     <p>*** The gettext configure tools also need:</p>
195    
196     <pre>export CPPFLAGS="-I/c/Program Files/gtkmm/include"
197     export LDFLAGS="-L/c/Program Files/gtkmm/lib"</pre>
198    
199    
200     <h3><a name="sndfile">11.&nbsp; Building libsndfile</a></h3>
201    
202     <p>The windows precompiled version of libsndfile doesn't include the
203     neccessary pkg-config file, so it's best to build libsndfile
204     yourself. Download libsndfile-1.0.17.tar.gz
205     from <a href="http://www.mega-nerd.com/libsndfile/">www.mega-nerd.com</a> and
206     extract it to your $HOME:</p>
207    
208     <pre>cd
209     tar xzf libsndfile-1.0.17.tar.gz</pre>
210    
211     <p>To prevent a compilation error for the test cases, add</p>
212    
213     <pre>#include &lt;stdint.h></pre>
214    
215     <p>to tests/utils.h.</p>
216    
217     <pre>./configure
218     make
219     make install</pre>
220    
221    
222     <h3><a name="gig">12.&nbsp; Building libgig</a></h3>
223    
224     <p>Just use the same commands as you would in linux:</p>
225    
226     <pre>make -f Makefile.cvs (if you build from CVS)
227     ./configure (add any configuration parameters as you wish)
228     make
229     make install</pre>
230    
231    
232     <h3><a name="ls">13.&nbsp; Building linuxsampler</a></h3>
233    
234     <pre>make -f Makefile.cvs (if you build from CVS)
235     ./configure --enable-asiosdk-dir=$HOME --enable-vstsdk-dir=$HOME/vstsdk2.4
236     make
237     make install</pre>
238    
239    
240     <h3><a name="gigedit">14.&nbsp; Building gigedit</a></h3>
241    
242     <pre>make -f Makefile.cvs (if you build from CVS)
243     ./configure
244     make
245     make install</pre>
