Build info bugs
« on: July 30, 2005, 05:04:35 pm »
Hi,

First, i would like to thank you all for this great IDE. It is by far the best open source IDE i have seen yet. And it seems to be getting better and better, as the CVS head screenshots show.

So, i've tried to compile it, so that i could start playing a bit with it and changing the things that bother me most, but i have come over a few issues in the build information (README-wx2.6.0):
  - first, it states that MSYS is not required... This is not exactly true: in fact, it is necessary NOT TO have MSYS (at least not in the path). Else, wxWidgets can't compile.
  - then, i was not able to compile Code::Blocks. I had to add the wxWidgets directories into the Compiler settings, else wx files could not be found. I'm not sure if this is normal, but i have otherwise followed all the instructions... so i guess some information was missing :)
  - finally, the "zip.exe" missing for update, but i was able to find this elsewhere on this forum.

Once this was done, it worked fine, but it would be nice if the build info were updated.

ok, i'll do that... Indeed, i had not thought of looking through the wiki... I was thinking that the build information present on CVS (README-wx2.6.0...) should be updated :)

Anyway, i'll add something to the wiki as well.

Perhaps it is usefull to update the content of that textfile with the content of the Wiki
OS: winXP
Compiler: mingw
IDE: Code::Blocks SVN WX: 2.8.4 Wish list: faster code completion, easier debugging, refactoring
