look at `ms-windows/osgeo4w/package.cmd`.
## 4.2. Building on Linux with mxe
## 4.2. Building on Linux with mingw64
With this approach you can cross build a Windows binary on Linux using MXE (M cross environment).
You can find the build script and a README.md file in the ms-windows/mxe directory.
With this approach you can cross build a Windows binary on Linux using mingw64
in a Docker container.
For now, Python buildings cannot be built with mxe.
To build on Linux from your QGIS sources directory, launch:
```cmd
ms-windows/mingw/build.sh
```
After a successful build, you will find two packages in the QGIS sources
directory:
- qgis-portable-win64.zip (QGIS for Windows 64bit)
- qgis-portable-win64-debugsym.zip (debug symbols)
This method is also used in the continuous integrations process. After each pull
request the two packages mentioned above are stored as GitHub actions artifacts
and are available for download making it possible to quickly test changes on Windows.
