OSSBuild-mingw
--------------

OSSBuild-mingw provides a build system based on jhbuild to build open source software using Mingw/Msys for Windows. It extends jhbuild, wrapping several of its commands and providing new ones that are specific to this build system. It also provides a default configuration and a set of modules that is ready to use both on Windows and Linux

Prerequisites
-------------

On Windows:

 * Git: http://code.google.com/p/msysgit/
 * Python (2.7): http://www.python.org/download/windows/
 * setuptools:  http://pypi.python.org/packages/2.7/s/setuptools/setuptools-0.6c11.win32-py2.7.exe#md5=57e1e64f6b7c7f1d2eddfc9746bbaf20
 * PyGtk (all-in-one installer): http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/binaries/win32/pygtk/2.24/pygtk-all-in-one-2.24.0.win32-py2.7.msi
 * MinGW-get (install all packages): http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/Automated%20MinGW%20Installer/mingw-get-inst/

 We recommend using Console 2.00 instead of the default MinGW's terminal emulator. To install it, run:
   $ mingw-get install msys-console
   $ console-config

On Linux:

 * git
 * python
 * python-setuptools
 * libtool
 * autoconf
 * automake
 * cmake
 * glib2-devel (glib-genmarshal)
 * bison
 * yasm
 * flex
 * Install Python27 with wine: $wine msiexec /i /path/to/installer/python2.7.msi


Install ossbuild
---------------
1. Checkout sources:
  Create a directory to work in.

  $ git clone git://github.com/ossbuild/ossbuild-main.git
  $ cd ossbuild-main
  $ git submodule init
  $ git submodule update

2. Install
  as root, systemwide:
  $ python setup.py install
  or as user:
  $ python setup.py install --prefix ~/prefix

3 Bootstrap (install the default toolchain and extra headers like the DirectX ones)
  $ ossbuild setup
  $ ossbuild update_moduleset


Configuring ossbuild
--------------------
OSSBuild has two configuration files, ~/.ossbuild/ossbuildrc and ~/.ossbuild/ossbuildenv.

1. ossbuildrc
  Configration file for the build system similar to the jhbuild one.
  You can use this file to override the default values (set in /path/to/repo/ossbuild/defaults.ossbuild)
  The installation step will create one for you changing the path of the modulesets directory:
  modulesets_dir = '/home/user/git/ossbuild/modulesets'

2. ossbuilenv
  Configuration file used to override environment variables. This file is loaded before the defaults one,
  allowing setting the environment variables HOST and TOOLCHAIN_PREFIX, which are used to use a custom toolchain.


Using ossbuild
--------------
Since ossbuild uses jhbuild, you can use most of the jhbuild commands (see http://developer.gnome.org/jhbuild/unstable/)

1. List modules
  $ ossbuild list -a

2. Update modules list
  $ ossbuild update_moduleset

3. Build
  $ ossbuild build gstreamer


Building for W64
----------------
Builds for 64bits are not supported yet, but you can still try using the
W64 toolchain provided by mingw-w64 and send us patches :)
You only need to change the default toolchain as explained in the next section 


Changing the default toolchain
------------------------------
We strongly reccomend using the default toolchain, installed with the 'setup'
command. If you still want to use a different toolchain, you should edit the
environment file (~/.ossbuild/ossbuildenv) and change the host triplet
and the toolchain prefix. On Fedora 15, to use the system's cross-compiler you
can use:
os.environ['HOST'] = 'i686-pc-mingw32'
os.environ['TOOLCHAIN_PREFIX'] = '/usr'
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
