InstallersAndPackages
« on: June 28, 2010, 07:05:34 pm »
Hello,

using Code::Blocks on Windows32 Vista Home Premium.

This is a very nice IDE, works great.

Only, is there an ability to make packages and installers.
(msi installers and deb/rpm packages)

If there is please tell me.
If there is NOT, where to do feature requests?
(Most projects allow some sort of feedback, feature request part in the forum somewhere.)

For windows installers, read about the nullsoft's installer.
For linux, you need to support another build system (autotools, scons, cmake) in order to make packages.
Unfortunately, CB can't generate them automatically.

There is a cbMakegen plugin, but it is not quite reliable.
(most of the time I ignore long posts)

You can create deb-packages without automake.
I created a very simple template for debian, that uses C::B as build-system and not automake/autoconf.
It needs some handworking to be used for other projects, but this is quite simple (if you know how debian build-system works).
