cross compiler install failed on FC8

William Estrada
Hi group,

I am trying to install the latest version of Ming32 cross compiler on my
FC8 system and
I get this error:

    10:06:57 (226.48 KB/s) - `w32api-3.7-src.tar.gz' saved [1110397/1110397]


    ./x86-mingw32-build.sh: preparing the build tree... done.

    ./x86-mingw32-build.sh: stage 1: build binutils ...
    ./x86-mingw32-build.sh:
    /home/ming32/packages/binutils-2.17.50-20060716-1-src.t[ag][rz]* is
    not a recognisable archive

How do I fix it??

Update.
I tried to reinstall as root and got this error:

I just faced this this past week on a Slackware 12.1+ (aka -current) system.

Rather than build, I converted existing packages.

I downloaded the three .DEBs from Debian and used the alien perl script to
convert them to .TGZ's which Slackware's installpkg could handle.

alien will also convert to RPM.

http://packages.debian.org/mingw32                3.4.5.20060117 from etch
http://packages.debian.org/mingw32-runtime        3.13-1 from sid
http://packages.debian.org/mingw32-binutils        2.18.50-20080109 from sid

The MinGW binutils-2.17.50 source tarballs are incomplete; they are
actually snapshots of a CVS working tree, rather than distribution
packages -- hence the need for texinfo, and also (f)lex and bison.

This is too new.  Believe it or not, the stock binutils-2.17.50 and
earlier got texinfo detection badly wrong, and couldn't detect
anything more recent than texinfo-4.9 as suitable.

> Now what????

You can google for a patch to correct the binutils defect, or you can
update the x86-mingw32-build.sh.conf script, as instructed within it,
to use a newer version of binutils, e.g. 2.18.50-20080109-9, which
shouldn't need texinfo, flex or bison.  While you are about it, you
might also consider newer versions of mingw-runtime and w32api.

If you need any more assistance, feel free to ask, but please don't
top post -- if you do, I will not be responding.

Regards,
Keith.

John,

Thanks for the reply.

I got past this problem and then ran into another one.

I did find RPM files to install mingw and have installed them but can not
figure out how to use them?

Still trying. Mingw works very well once you have it installed but it is
a real
pain to install!

Thanks for your time.

William.

OK, two questions:

    What is 'top posting'?

    Where can I get a more current version of x86-mingw32-build.sh.conf ?
    I keep getting the old one from
    http://www.mingw.org/wiki/LinuxCrossMinGW.
    or
    https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=2435&package_id=12644&release_id=17892

Exactly what you have done yet again, asking me to read backwards;
this is where I stop reading.

As output from your favourite editor; the file is liberally commented,
to explain how you keep it up to date.  The README tells you this.

Keith.

Thanks for all the responses.  I got it installed by using RPMs for FC8.
