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. The
56 installer will automatically download and install further
57 packages. Choose the base tools and the g++ compiler.</p>
58
59
60 <h3><a name="pkg">3.&nbsp; pkg-config and gtkmm</a></h3>
61
62 <p>The pkg-config tool is needed by the configure script in all the
63 LinuxSampler packages. pkg-config is included in gtkmm, which is
64 needed by gigedit. (If you are not going to build gigedit, you can
65 download just GLib and pkg-config
66 from <a href="http://www.gtk.org">www.gtk.org</a>.)</p>
67
68 <p>Download the gtkmm windows installer,
69 gtkmm-win32-devel-2.14.3-2.exe,
70 from <a href="http://www.gtkmm.org">www.gtkmm.org</a>, and run it. Let
71 the installer adjust the PATH variable as it wants.</p>
72
73
74 <h3><a name="msys">4.&nbsp; MSYS</a></h3>
75
76 <p>I use the 1.0.11 Technology Preview version, as I had problems
77 building DLLs with the 1.0.10 current version.</p>
78
79 <p>Download from "MSYS Base System, Technology Preview: MSYS-1.0.11":</p>
80
81 <pre>msysCORE-1.0.11-20080826.tar.gz</pre>
82
83 <p>Unpack the file to a directory of your choice, for example C:\msys. As
84 1.0.11 doesn't have an installer yet, you need to have an unpacker
85 that supports tar.gz/tar.bz, for example 7-Zip. The rest of the files
86 you can unpack with the tar included in msysCORE.</p>
87
88 <p>Run the postinstall\pi.bat file and specify your MinGW
89 directory.</p>
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>Extract all these files to the msys directory, by starting msys, do
109 "cd /" followed by "tar xjf <i>filename</i>" for .tar.bz2 files and
110 "tar xzf <i>filename</i>" for .tar.gz files.</p>
111
112
113 <h3><a name="asio">5.&nbsp; ASIO SDK</a></h3>
114
115 <p>Download asiosdk2.2.zip from Steinberg. Extract it to your msys
116 $HOME.</p>
117
118
119 <h3><a name="vst">6.&nbsp; VST SDK</a></h3>
120
121 <p>If you want to build the LinuxSampler VST plugin, download
122 vst_sdk2_4_rev2.zip from Steinberg (note that you should not choose
123 version 3). Extract it to msys $HOME.</p>
124
125
126 <h3><a name="intl">7.&nbsp; intltool ***</a></h3>
127
128 <p>Download intltool_0.40.4-1_win32.zip from
129 <a href="http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/binaries/win32/intltool">http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/binaries/win32/intltool</a></p>
130
131 <p>Unzip this into the msys local directory, (C:\msys\local for
132 example)</p>
133
134
135 <h3><a name="perl">8.&nbsp; Perl ***</a></h3>
136
137 <p>The perl in MSYS is lacking an XML parser which is needed by
138 intltool. Download ActivePerl
139 from <a href="http://www.activestate.com">www.activestate.com</a> and
140 install it.</p>
141
142
143 <h3><a name="xslt">9.&nbsp; xsltproc ***</a></h3>
144
145 <p>The gigedit Makefile wants to build the gigedit quick start
146 documentation, so it needs the xsltproc command. Download from
147 <a href="ftp://ftp.zlatkovic.com/pub/libxml/">ftp://ftp.zlatkovic.com/pub/libxml/</a>:</p>
148
149 <pre>libxml2-2.7.2+.win32.zip
150 libxslt-1.1.24.win32.zip</pre>
151
152 <p>Copy the contents of the bin directories from both zip files to a
153 directory of your choice. Add this directory last in your msys PATH,
154 for example:</p>
155
156 <pre>export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/xsltproc</pre>
157
158
159 <h3><a name="setup">10.&nbsp; MSYS setup</a></h3>
160
161 <p>Add the gtkmm aclocal directory to the list of extra directories
162 used by autoconf. (Make sure the gtkmm path is the one where you
163 installed it. The space in "Program Files" causes problems, so the
164 short file name form is used here):</p>
165
166 <pre>echo "/c/Progra~1/gtkmm/share/aclocal" >> /usr/local/share/aclocal/dirlist</pre>
167
168 <p>Add the gtkmm bin directory first in your PATH (the installer has
169 already added gtkmm to the PATH, but it may have used "Program Files"
170 with a space in it, which causes configure to fail):</p>
171
172 <pre>export PATH=/c/Progra~1/gtkmm/bin:$PATH</pre>
173
174 <p>Make sure pkg-config will find the LinuxSampler libraries:</p>
175
176 <pre>export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig</pre>
177
178
179 <p>*** The intltool scripts expect perl to be in /opt/perl/bin, so
180 make a link to the ActivePerl installation. Also add ActivePerl to
181 PATH:</p>
182
183 <pre>mkdir -p /opt/perl/bin
184 ln -s /c/Perl/bin/perl.exe /opt/perl/bin
185 export PATH=/c/Perl/bin:$PATH</pre>
186
187
188 <p>*** MSYS gettext and gtkmm both include libintl. We want the gtkmm
189 version. Remove the MSYS files so the gettext configure tools don't
190 choose the wrong version:</p>
191
192 <pre>rm /usr/local/include/libintl.h /usr/local/lib/libintl*</pre>
193
194
195 <p>*** The gettext configure tools also need:</p>
196
197 <pre>export CPPFLAGS="-I/c/Progra~1/gtkmm/include"
198 export LDFLAGS="-L/c/Progra~1/gtkmm/lib"</pre>
199
200
201 <h3><a name="sndfile">11.&nbsp; Building libsndfile</a></h3>
202
203 <p>The windows precompiled version of libsndfile doesn't include the
204 neccessary pkg-config file, so it's best to build libsndfile
205 yourself. Download libsndfile-1.0.17.tar.gz
206 from <a href="http://www.mega-nerd.com/libsndfile/">www.mega-nerd.com</a> and
207 extract it to your $HOME:</p>
208
209 <pre>cd
210 tar xzf libsndfile-1.0.17.tar.gz</pre>
211
212 <p>To prevent a compilation error for the test cases, add</p>
213
214 <pre>#include &lt;stdint.h></pre>
215
216 <p>to tests/utils.h.</p>
217
218 <pre>./configure
219 make
220 make install</pre>
221
222
223 <h3><a name="gig">12.&nbsp; Building libgig</a></h3>
224
225 <p>Just use the same commands as you would in linux:</p>
226
227 <pre>make -f Makefile.cvs (if you build from CVS)
228 ./configure (add any configuration parameters as you wish)
229 make
230 make install</pre>
231
232
233 <h3><a name="ls">13.&nbsp; Building linuxsampler</a></h3>
234
235 <pre>make -f Makefile.cvs (if you build from CVS)
236 ./configure --enable-asiosdk-dir=$HOME --enable-vstsdk-dir=$HOME/vstsdk2.4
237 make
238 make install</pre>
239
240
241 <h3><a name="gigedit">14.&nbsp; Building gigedit</a></h3>
242
243 <pre>make -f Makefile.cvs (if you build from CVS)
244 ./configure
245 make
246 make install</pre>
247 </body>
248 </html>
