Date: Sun, 15 May 2022 15:44:42 +0000 (UTC) [thread overview]
Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> (raw)
Hello, reporting back!
(Irc is fine, but people can't follow that easily, so here are my
I installed cygwin and everything gcc that made sense, including the gcc
package and mingw-gcc. I didn't install any 32bit compilers as far as I
can tell. The installation target was my work windows 11 PC.
Using CONF=win64 compiled without any issues. It used
x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc for compiling. I verified the binary is 64-bit,
and not 32-bit. Starting works fine like I'd expect from a drawterm
application. No issues at runtime so far.
However, Make.win64 mentions that I can set MING to nothing when not
cross-compiling since it would just use gcc then. I tried it, but it
failed at some #include (I think it was direct.h). It is possible that it
uses the "other" gcc version I installed on cygwin which tries to find
libraries that aren't installed.
In the end, mingw works fine and is also what the Readme states. I
suggest adjusting the comment in the Make.win64 to prevent confusion and
then publish it.
P.S. nice to have some 64-bit drawterm. I'd love to have it as a download
