Re: [libvirt] PATCH: Latest MinGW patches


I have seen the fixes for MinGW have been included to 0.4.5 release. But I am unable to find the windows binaries on the site, which were to be generated using MinGW. If anyone of you already have client binaries for windows, please share them with me.

SAKAI already shared me link to build virsh windows executable using a guide, but I am having some setup issues. It is missing some basic instruction such as MinGW setup. Where should I setup MinGW? a fedora or windows machine and where to get its distribution? The directory structure suggests that I should use fedora.

Why is the MinGW guide is not published on your site as you are actively work on it?

So if you follow the mailing list, you will see that Dan Berrange has
just spent a great deal of time fixing up the current Windows support
for libvirt and also adding libvirt to our automated build process.
This means that libvirt Windows support won't break so easily in
future.  It also means that shortly we can start offering libvirt
binaries on the website.

The next step is to get the required MinGW packages into Fedora, which
is something I'm looking at right now.

And the step after that will be to build more of our tools and supply
those on the website (see the list at that link above).

So this is broadly underway now.  If you wish to help out, please grab
the latest libvirt from CVS and try building it.

Fedora now supports 67 OCaml packages (the OPEN alternative to F#)
