GCJ on mingw32 resignation.
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Unfortunately, I can't get that far. gcc-core-4.6.2.tar gcc-java-4.6.2.tar gc6.8.tar are the files I have. Now, Ive been told that I have to compile gcc-core-4.6.2.tar and have that running successfully first. This isn't working, due to an error message which I learn from the email list is due to an error I must be making, which I am not, and is therefore impossible. So I turn to my gcc-java file, which I try to use standalone without the core file. I find that it has 4 directories. I have replaced, configured maked installed 2 of those directories with more up to date versions of their programs, with no problems. These 2 are boehm-gc and libffi. However, I find that in ...gcc/java/ there isn't a configure script at all to start from, and that in .../libjava/ the configure script fails on the first line. Am I doing the wrong thing here? Can gcc-java-4.6.2.tar be used to build my gcj, without the gcc-core-4.6.2.tar file? If not, can I please just be sent a link or an archive file of someone's successful build of gcj on windows mingw32 (which is not the eclipse version)? Since I'm reall not succeeding from source code!

It shouldn't be that hard. You just have to replace the boehm-gc with an upstream version. The one in the GCC tree doesn't work (for mingw-w64), and it's a giant massive uphill (losing) battle to get everyone on the same page to update it. I admit I haven't tried it recently, but I did build it once before.
