4.4. Building on Linux with mxe
===============================

With this approach you can build a windows binary on Linux using mxe MXE (M cross environment).
You can find the build script and a README file in the ms-windows/mxe directory.

For now, Python buildings cannot be built with mxe.

4.4.1. Initial setup
====================

Please follow the instructions on mxe website to setup your building toolchain http://mxe.cc/,
take note of the path where you have installed mxe.

4.4.2. Building the dependencies
================================

Please see the README under ms-windows/mxe for a list of the dependencies that need to be
built in mxe before attempting to build QGIS.


4.4.3. Cross-Building QGIS
==========================

Edit the build-mxe.sh script and change the path where your mxe installation is located, you
can also change the build and release directory.

4.4.4. Testing QGIS
====================

Copy and unzip the release package on a Windows machine and launch it!


5. Building on MacOS X
======================

Scripts to cross build a windows QGIS binary from Linux using MXE:
(M cross environment) http://mxe.cc/

For now, Python bindings cannot be built with mxe.

Follow the instructions on the website to prepare the mxe environment, you
will need to build all required dependencies for QGIS.

Note that some of the packages listed below are dependencies of other
packages, you will probably not need to build them all explicitly.
