######################################################################################
(See bottom of file for steps to cross-build for Win32 from Linux.)
**************************************************************************************
* Introduction *
**************************************************************************************
The following instructions have been tested on both Windows 7 and Windows XP.
Most of what is described below (copying files, downloading files, etc.) can be done
directly in the MinGW MSYS shell; these instructions do not do so because package
versions and links change over time. The best way is to use your browser, go to the
links directly, and see for yourself which versions you want to install.
Winrar was used to do the extracting of archive files in the making of this guide.

**************************************************************************************
* A tip that might help you along the way *
**************************************************************************************
Enable "QuickEdit Mode" in your Command Prompt Window or MinGW Command Prompt
Window (No need to go into the context menu to choose edit-mark/copy/paste):
Right-click on the title bar and click Properties. Under the Options tab, check
the box for "QuickEdit Mode". Alternately, if you want this change to be
permanent on all of your Command Prompt Windows; you can click Defaults instead
of Properties as described above. Now you can drag and select text you want to
copy, right-click to copy the text to the clipboard and right-click once again to
paste it at the desired location. You could for example, copy some text from this
document to the clipboard and right click in your Command Prompt Window to paste
what you copied.
**************************************************************************************
* Install mingw32 *
**************************************************************************************
Go to this url ==> http://www.mingw.org/wiki/Getting_Started
Click the link that says "Download and run the latest mingw-get-inst version."
Download and run the latest file. Install MinGW in the default directory.
(I downloaded the one labeled "mingw-get-inst-20120426" - note that this could
be a different version later.)
Make sure to check the option for "Download latest repository catalogs".
I just selected all the check boxes (excluding "Fortran Compiler") so that everything
was installed.
**************************************************************************************
* Run the MSYS shell for the first time to create your user directory *
**************************************************************************************
(Start Icon/keyboard key ==> All Programs ==> MinGW ==> MinGW Shell).
This will create your user directory for you.
**************************************************************************************
* Install libpdcurses *
**************************************************************************************
Type the lines below to install libpdcurses.
mingw-get install mingw32-libpdcurses
mingw-get install mingw32-pdcurses
Ctrl-D or typing "logout" and pressing the enter key should get you out of the
window.
**************************************************************************************
* Copy CGMiner source to your MSYS working directory *
**************************************************************************************
Copy CGMiner source code directory into:
\MinGW\msys\1.0\home\(folder with your user name)
**************************************************************************************
* Install AMD APP SDK, latest version (only if you want GPU mining) *
**************************************************************************************
Note: You do not need to install the AMD APP SDK if you are only using Nvidia GPU's
Go to this url for the latest AMD APP SDK:
http://developer.amd.com/tools/heterogeneous-computing/amd-accelerated-parallel-processing-app-sdk/downloads/
Go to this url for legacy AMD APP SDK's:
http://developer.amd.com/tools/heterogeneous-computing/amd-accelerated-parallel-processing-app-sdk/downloads/download-archive/
Download and install whichever version you like best.
Copy the folders in \Program Files (x86)\AMD APP\include to \MinGW\include
Copy \Program Files (x86)\AMD APP\lib\x86\libOpenCL.a to \MinGW\lib
Note: If you are on a 32 bit version of windows "Program Files (x86)" will be
"Program Files".
Note2: If you update your APP SDK later you might want to recopy the above files
**************************************************************************************
* Install AMD ADL SDK, latest version (only if you want GPU monitoring) *
**************************************************************************************
Note: You do not need to install the AMD ADL SDK if you are only using Nvidia GPU's
Go to this url ==> http://developer.amd.com/tools/graphics-development/display-library-adl-sdk/
Download and unzip the file you downloaded.
Pull adl_defines.h, adl_sdk.h, and adl_structures.h out of the include folder
Put those files into the ADL_SDK folder in your source tree as shown below.
\MinGW\msys\1.0\home\(folder with your user name)\cgminer-x.x.x\ADL_SDK
**************************************************************************************
* Install GTK-WIN, required for Pkg-config in the next step *
**************************************************************************************
Go to this url ==> http://sourceforge.net/projects/gtk-win/
Download the file.
After you have downloaded the file Double click/run it and this will install GTK+
I chose all the selection boxes when I installed.
Copy libglib-2.0-0.dll and intl.dll from \Program Files (x86)\gtk2-runtime\bin to
\MinGW\bin
Note: If you are on a 32 bit version of windows "Program Files (x86)" will be
"Program Files".
**************************************************************************************
* Install pkg-config *
**************************************************************************************
Go to this url ==> http://www.gtk.org/download/win32.php
Scroll down to where it shows pkg-cfg.
Download the file from the tool link. Extract "pkg-config.exe" from bin and place in
your \MinGW\bin directory.
Download the file from the "Dev" link. Extract "pkg.m4" from share\aclocal and place
in your \MingW\share\aclocal directory.
**************************************************************************************
* Install libcurl *
**************************************************************************************
Go to this url ==> http://curl.haxx.se/download.html#Win32
At the section where it says "Win32 - Generic", Click on the link that indicates
Win32 2000.XP 7.27.0 libcurl SSL and download it.
The one I downloaded may not be current for you. Choose the latest.
Extract the files that are in the zip (bin, include, and lib) to their respective
locations in MinGW (\MinGW\bin, \MinGW\include, and \MinGW\lib).
Edit the file \MinGW\lib\pkgconfig\libcurl.pc and change "-lcurl" to
"-lcurl -lcurldll".
Ref. http://old.nabble.com/gcc-working-with-libcurl-td20506927.html
**************************************************************************************
* Build cgminer.exe *
**************************************************************************************
Run the MinGW MSYS shell
(Start Icon/keyboard key ==> All Programs ==> MinGW ==> MinGW Shell).
Change the working directory to your CGMiner project folder.
Example: cd cgminer-2.1.2 [Enter Key] if you are unsure then type "ls -la"
Another way is to type "cd cg" and then press the tab key; It will auto fill.
Type the lines below one at a time. Look for problems after each one before going on
to the next.
adl.sh (optional - see below)
autoreconf -fvi
CFLAGS="-O2 -msse2" ./configure (additional config options, see below)
make
strip cgminer.exe <== only do this if you are not compiling for debugging
**************************************************************************************
* Copy files to a build directory/folder *
**************************************************************************************
Make a directory and copy the following files into it. This will be your CGMiner
Folder that you use for mining. Remember the .cl filenames could change on later
releases. If you installed a different version of libcurl then some of those dll's
may be different as well.
cgminer.exe from \MinGW\msys\1.0\home\(username)\cgminer-x.x.x
*.cl from \MinGW\msys\1.0\home\(username)\cgminer-x.x.x
README from \MinGW\msys\1.0\home\(username)\cgminer-x.x.x
libcurl.dll from \MinGW\bin
libidn-11.dll from \MinGW\bin
libeay32.dll from \MinGW\bin
ssleay32.dll from \MinGW\bin
libpdcurses.dll from \MinGW\bin
pthreadGC2.dll from \MinGW\bin
**************************************************************************************
* Optional - Install Git into MinGW/MSYS *
**************************************************************************************
Go to this url ==> http://code.google.com/p/msysgit/
Click on the Downloads tab.
Download the latest "Portable" git archive.
Extract the git*.exe files from the bin folder and put them into \MinGW\bin.
Extract the share\git-core folder and place it into \MinGW\share.
After the previous step you should have a folder called \MinGW\share\git-core.
To test if it is working, open a MinGW shell and type the following:
git config -–global core.autocrlf false (note: one time run only)
git clone git://github.com/ckolivas/cgminer.git
If you simply just want to update the source after you have already cloned, type:
git pull
"git pull" did not work for me. Try the following which does the same thing:
git fetch && git merge FETCH_HEAD
Now you can get the latest source directly from github.
**************************************************************************************
* Optional - Make a .sh file to automate copying over ADL files *
**************************************************************************************
Make a folder/directory in your home folder and name it ADL_SDK.
(ref: \MinGW\msys\1.0\home\(folder with your user name)\ADL_SDK)
Copy the ADL .h files into that folder/directory.
Open your favorite text editor and type the following into it.
cp -av ../ADL_SDK/*.h ADL_SDK
Save the file as "adl.sh" and then place the file into "\MinGW\msys\1.0\bin".
From now on when your current working directory is the cgminer source directory
You can simply type "adl.sh" and it will place the ADL header files into place
For you. Make sure you never remove the ADL_SDK folder from your home folder.
**************************************************************************************
* Optional - Install libusb if you need auto USB device detection; required for Ztex *
**************************************************************************************
Go to this url ==> http://git.libusb.org/?p=libusb.git;a=snapshot;h=master;sf=zip
save the file to your local storage. Open the file and copy the libusb* folder to
\MinGW\msys\1.0\home\(your user directory/folder).
Or if you do not want to download the file directly and would like to use git then
Type the following from the MSYS shell in your home folder.
git clone git://git.libusb.org/libusb.git
Run the MinGW MSYS shell
(Start Icon/keyboard key ==> All Programs ==> MinGW ==> MinGW Shell).
Change the working directory to your libusb project folder.
Example: cd libusb-something [Enter Key] if you are unsure then type "ls -la"
Another way is to type "cd libusb" and then press the tab key; It will auto fill.
Type the lines below one at a time. Look for problems after each one before going on
to the next.
./autogen.sh --disable-debug-log --prefix=/MinGW
make
make install
You may now exit the MSYS shell.
Ctrl-D or typing "logout" and pressing the enter key should get you out of the
window.
You will have to copy "libusb-1.0.dll" to your working cgminer binary directory.
You will find "libusb-1.0.dll" in the \MinGW\bin directory/folder.
Use this method if libusb does not work for you on Ztex. Once someone lets us know
Libusb works instead of libusbx then we will remove the section below this line.
Run the MSYS shell and change into the libusb folder as above.
Type ==> make uninstall
Go to this url ==> http://libusbx.org/
Click on the "Downloads" tab.
Click on "releases".
Click on the latest version. I downloaded 1.0.14; yours may be newer.
Do not download from the link that says "Looking for the latest version?".
Click on "Windows"
Click on the file and download it. I downloaded libusbx-1.0.12-win.7z.
Extract the the following from the file and place in where directed.
Copy libusb.h from include\libusbx-1.0 to \MinGW\include\libusb-1.0\libusb.h
Copy contents of MinGW32\static \MinGW\lib
Copy contents of MinGW32\dll to \MinGW\lib
You will have to copy "libusb-1.0.dll" to your working cgminer binary directory.

# Cross-compiling for Windows from Linux #
# #
######################################################################################
It is possible to cross-compile Windows binaries from Linux. The
process is a bit different to the native steps shown above (it is also
possible to use wine and the native steps, but this is more messing
around, very slow, and not advisable.)
** Install mingw cross compiler
On Ubuntu/Debian:
sudo apt-get install mingw32
** create a directory to hold our cross-library dependencies
We'll create a directory outside the source tree to hold non-system
libraries we depend on. We could put these in
/usr/i586-mingw32msvc/lib or anywhere else, instead (though keeping it
outside /usr means we can set it up without root privileges.)
IMPORTANT: If you put this directory inside your cgminer directory,
remember 'make distclean' may delete it!
mkdir -p ../cgminer-win32-deps/lib
cd ../cgminer-win32-deps
mkdir include
mkdir bin
NB: All following steps assume you are in the "cgminer-win32-deps" directory. Adjust as necessary.
** pdcurses
wget http://internode.dl.sourceforge.net/project/pdcurses/pdcurses/3.4/pdc34dllw.zip
unzip /home/gus/Downloads/pdc34dllw.zip
mv *.h include/
mv pdcurses.lib lib/
mv pdcurses.dll bin/
** pthreads-w32
(NB: I found pthreads-w32 2.9.1 doesn't seem to work properly, transfers time out early due to sem_timedwait exiting immediately(?))
wget -O lib/libpthread.a ftp://sourceware.org/pub/pthreads-win32/prebuilt-dll-2-8-0-release/lib/libpthreadGC2.a
wget -O include/pthread.h ftp://sourceware.org/pub/pthreads-win32/prebuilt-dll-2-8-0-release/include/pthread.h
wget -O include/sched.h ftp://sourceware.org/pub/pthreads-win32/prebuilt-dll-2-8-0-release/include/sched.h
wget -O include/semaphore.h ftp://sourceware.org/pub/pthreads-win32/prebuilt-dll-2-8-0-release/include/semaphore.h
wget -O lib/libpthread.a ftp://sourceware.org/pub/pthreads-win32/prebuilt-dll-2-8-0-release/lib/libpthreadGC2.a
wget -O bin/pthreadGC2.dll ftp://sourceware.org/pub/pthreads-win32/prebuilt-dll-2-8-0-release/lib/pthreadGC2.dll
** libcurl
wget http://curl.haxx.se/gknw.net/7.33.0/dist-w32/curl-7.33.0-devel-mingw32.zip
unzip curl-7.33.0-devel-mingw32.zip
mv curl-7.33.0-devel-mingw32/include/* include/
mv curl-7.33.0-devel-mingw32/lib/* lib/
mv curl-7.33.0-devel-mingw32/bin/* bin/
rm -rf curl-7.33.0-devel-mingw32
** clean up
rm *.zip
** Building cgminer
Below assumes you're building in a "build-win32" or similar directory
inside the cgminer directory. Fix up the -I and -L paths appropriately
if you're building in-tree or someplace else.
Configure command:
CPPFLAGS="-I`pwd`/../../cgminer-win32-deps/include" LDFLAGS="-L`pwd`/../../cgminer-win32-deps/lib -lcurldll" ../autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/local/i586-mingw32 --host=i586-mingw32msvc --build=i686-linux
^^^ Plus whatever configure arguments you want to add. Note the paths
to cgminer-win32-deps that you may need to change.
And make:
make
After cgminer builds, the next steps are the same as for native
building as given under "Copy files to a build directory/folder"
(DLLs can all be found in the cgminer-win32-deps/bin directory.)
