Compiling w/ mingw
June 28, 2003 04:13PM
Hello guys!

I think Coolplayer is pretty slick, so I decided I want to compile the source myself under mingw. I have directx 9 installed.
I just changed the makefile to point to my directx directory and typed make.

But the make process failes, it says it can't create the folder .libs for libogg.a and that's true since windows doesn't allow that, what's the solution?

Keep it up guys!

Windows does, Windows explorer does not.

I did this:

search for .libs in all the makefiles (you can use the windows file find tool)

rename it to libs (or as you please but must be the same)

if it gives you receive an error saying you that make could no create an existing dir because it exists, take away the second line that creates it in thew makefile.

hope it helps you
bye
Waldo
