<h2 id="introduction">Introduction</h2>
<p>
MXE (M cross environment) is a Makefile that
compiles a cross compiler and cross compiles
many free libraries such as SDL and Qt. Thus,
it provides a nice cross compiling environment
for various target platforms, which
</p>
<ul>
<li>
is designed to
<a href="#requirements">run on any Unix system</a>
</li>
<li>
is easy to adapt and to extend
</li>
<li>
builds
<a href="#packages">many free libraries</a>
in addition to the cross compiler
</li>
<li>
can also
<a href="#usage">build just a subset</a>
of the packages,
and automatically builds their dependencies
</li>
<li>
downloads all needed packages
and verifies them by their checksums
</li>
<li>
is able to update the version numbers of all packages automatically
</li>
<li>
directly uses source packages,
thus ensuring the whole build mechanism is transparent
</li>
<li>
allows inter-package and intra-package
<a href="#usage">parallel builds</a>
whenever possible
</li>
<li>
integrates well with <a href="#tutorial-5a">autotools</a>,
<a href="#tutorial-5b">cmake</a>, <a href="#tutorial-5c">qmake</a>,
and <a href="#tutorial-5d">hand-written makefiles</a>.
</li>
<li>
has been in continuous development <a href="#history">since 2007</a>
and is <a href="#used-by">used by several projects</a>

<h2 id="tutorial">Tutorial</h2>
<h3 id="tutorial-1">Step 1: Requirements and Download</h3>
<p>
First, you should ensure that your system meets
MXE's
<a href="#requirements">requirements</a>.
You will almost certainly have to install some stuff.
</p>
<p>
When everything is fine, download the
<a href="#download">current stable version</a>:
</p>
<pre>git clone -b stable https://github.com/mxe/mxe.git</pre>
<p>
If you don't mind installing it in your home directory,
just skip the following step and go straight to step 3.
</p>
<h3 id="tutorial-2">Step 2: System-wide Installation (optional)</h3>
<p>
Now you should save any previous installation
of the MXE.
Assuming you've installed it under
/opt/mxe (any other directory will do as well),
you should execute the following commands:
</p>
<pre>su
mv /opt/mxe /opt/mxe.old
exit</pre>
<p>
Then you need to transfer the entire directory to its definitive location.
We will assume again you use /opt/mxe,
but feel free to use any other directory if you like.
</p>
<pre>su
mv mxe /opt/mxe
exit</pre>
<p>
We're almost done.
Just change to your newly created directory and get going:
</p>
<pre>cd /opt/mxe</pre>
<h3 id="tutorial-3">Step 3: Build MXE</h3>
<p>
Enter the directory where you've downloaded the MXE.
Now it depends on what you actually want &ndash; or need.
</p>
<p>
If you choose to enter:
</p>
<pre>make</pre>
<p>
you're in for a long wait,
because it compiles
<a href="#packages">a lot of packages</a>.
On the other hand it doesn't require any intervention,
so you're free to do whatever you like
&ndash; like watch a movie or go for a night on the town.
When it's done you'll find that you've installed
a very capable Win32 cross compiler onto your system.
</p>
<p>
If you only need the most basic tools you can also use:
</p>
<pre>make gcc</pre>
<p>
and add any additional packages you need later on.
You can also supply a host of packages on the
<a href="#usage">command line</a>,
e.g.:
</p>
<pre>make gtk lua libidn</pre>
<p>
Targets can also be specified on the command line.
By default, only i686-pc-mingw32 is built, but you can
build your toolchain(s) of choice with:
</p>
<pre>make MXE_TARGETS='x86_64-w64-mingw32 i686-w64-mingw32'</pre>
<p>
or by adjusting the <code>MXE_TARGETS</code> variable
in <code>settings.mk</code>.
</p>
<p>
You'll always end up with a consistent cross compiling environment.
</p>
<p>
If you have trouble here, please feel free to
contact the mxe team through the
<a href="https://github.com/mxe/mxe/issues">github issue tracker</a> or
<a href="http://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/mingw-cross-env-list">project mailing list</a>.
</p>
<p>
After you're done it just needs a little post-installation.
</p>
<h3 id="tutorial-4">Step 4: Environment Variables</h3>
<p>
Edit your .bashrc script in order to change $PATH:
</p>
<pre>export PATH=/<em>where MXE is installed</em>/usr/bin:$PATH</pre>
<p>
In case you are using custom $PKG_CONFIG_PATH entries,
you can add separate entries for cross builds:
</p>
<pre>export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="<em>entries for native builds</em>"</pre>
<pre>export PKG_CONFIG_PATH_i686_pc_mingw32="<em>entries for MXE builds</em>"</pre>
<p>
Remember to use i686-pc-mingw32-pkg-config
instead of pkg-config for cross builds.
The Autotools do that automatically for you.
</p>
<p>
Note that any other compiler related environment variables
(like $CC, $LDFLAGS, etc.)
may spoil your compiling pleasure,
so be sure to delete or disable those.
</p>
<p>
Congratulations!
You're ready to cross compile anything you like.
</p>
<h3 id="tutorial-5a">Step 5a: Cross compile your Project (Autotools)</h3>
<p>
If you use the
<a href="http://www.lrde.epita.fr/~adl/autotools.html">Autotools</a>,
all you have to do is:
</p>
<pre>./configure --host=i686-pc-mingw32
make</pre>
<p>
If you build a library, you might also want to enforce a static build:
</p>
<pre>./configure --host=i686-pc-mingw32 --enable-static --disable-shared
make</pre>
<p>
Don't worry about a warning like this:
</p>
<pre>configure: WARNING: If you wanted to set the --build type, don't use --host.
If a cross compiler is detected then cross compile mode will be used.</pre>
<p>
Everything will be just fine.
</p>
<h3 id="tutorial-5b">Step 5b: Cross compile your Project (CMake)</h3>
<p>
If you have a
<a href="http://www.cmake.org/">CMake</a> project,
you can use the provided toolchain file:
</p>
<pre>cmake ... -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=/<em>where MXE is installed</em>/usr/i686-pc-mingw32/share/cmake/mxe-conf.cmake</pre>
<h3 id="tutorial-5c">Step 5c: Cross compile your Project (Qt)</h3>
<p>
If you have a
<a href="http://qt-project.org/">Qt</a> application,
all you have to do is:
</p>
<pre>/where MXE is installed/usr/i686-pc-mingw32/qt/bin/qmake
make</pre>
<p>
Note that Qt 4 is in the "qt" subdirectory. Qt 5 is in the "qt5" subdirectory
and its qmake can be invoked similarly.
</p>
<p>
If you are using Qt plugins
such as the svg or ico image handlers,
you should also have a look at the
<a href="https://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/plugins-howto.html#static-plugins">Qt documentation about static plugins</a>.
</p>
<p>
Note the sql drivers (-qt-sql-*)
and the image handlers for jpeg, tiff, gif and mng
are built-in, <em>not</em> plugins.
</p>
<h3 id="tutorial-5d">Step 5d: Cross compile your Project (Makefile)</h3>
<p>
If you have a handwritten Makefile,
you probably will have to make a few adjustments to it:
</p>
<pre>CC=$(CROSS)gcc
LD=$(CROSS)ld
AR=$(CROSS)ar
PKG_CONFIG=$(CROSS)pkg-config</pre>
<p>
You may have to add a few others, depending on your project.
</p>
<p>
Then, all you have to do is:
</p>
<pre>make CROSS=i686-pc-mingw32-</pre>
<p>
That's it!
</p>
<h3 id="tutorial-5e">Step 5e: Cross compile your Project (OSG)</h3>
<p>
Using static OpenSceneGraph libraries requires a few changes to your source.
The graphics subsystem and all plugins required by your application must be
referenced explicitly. Use a code block like the following:
</p>
<pre>#ifdef OSG_LIBRARY_STATIC
USE_GRAPHICSWINDOW()
USE_OSGPLUGIN(&lt;plugin1&gt;)
USE_OSGPLUGIN(&lt;plugin2&gt;)
...
#endif</pre>
<p>
Look at <code>examples/osgstaticviewer/osgstaticviewer.cpp</code> in the
OpenSceneGraph source distribution for an example. This example can be
compiled with the following command:
</p>
<pre>i686-pc-mingw32-g++ \
-o osgstaticviewer.exe examples/osgstaticviewer/osgstaticviewer.cpp \
`i686-pc-mingw32-pkg-config --cflags openscenegraph-osgViewer openscenegraph-osgPlugins` \
`i686-pc-mingw32-pkg-config --libs openscenegraph-osgViewer openscenegraph-osgPlugins`</pre>
<p>
The <code>i686-pc-mingw32-pkg-config</code> command from MXE will
automatically add <code>-DOSG_LIBRARY_STATIC</code> to your compiler flags.
</p>
<h3>Further Steps</h3>
<p>
If you need further assistance,
feel free to join the
<a href="http://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/mingw-cross-env-list">project mailing list</a>
where you'll get in touch with
the MXE developers
and other users.

<h2 id="download">Download</h2>
<p>
To obtain the current stable version, run:
</p>
<pre>git clone -b stable https://github.com/mxe/mxe.git</pre>
<p>
The development version can be obtained by:
</p>
<pre>git clone -b master https://github.com/mxe/mxe.git</pre>
<p>
<strong>N.B.</strong> when using the development version,
ensure you use the local documentation (index.html) -
the website reflects the stable branch.
</p>
<p>
To retrieve updates, run:
</p>
<pre>git pull</pre>
<p>
You can also browse the
<a href="https://github.com/mxe/mxe">web repository</a>.
</p>
<p>
In addition,
feel free to join the
<a href="http://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/mingw-cross-env-list">project mailing list</a>
and to <a href="#creating-packages">propose new packages</a>.
</p>
<h3 id="committers">For Committers</h3>
<p>
The following <code>.git/config</code> settings ensure
that the stable branch will always be pushed to the
<code><a href="http://help.github.com/pages/">gh-pages</a></code>
branch in addition to the
<code>stable</code> branch,
thus ensuring the website will always stay in sync:
</p>
<pre>[remote "origin"]
url = git@github.com:mxe/mxe.git
fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
push = refs/heads/master:refs/heads/master
push = refs/heads/stable:refs/heads/stable
push = refs/heads/stable:refs/heads/gh-pages
[branch "master"]
remote = origin
merge = refs/heads/master
[branch "stable"]
remote = origin
merge = refs/heads/stable</pre>
<h3 id="branches">Branch Concept</h3>
<p>
For the sake of simplicity, there are just two
branches, "master" and "stable". Although it might
seem obvious, here's an overview of the types of
changes that go into each branch:
</p>
<ul class="compact-list">
<li>
Any change of a build script goes into "master".
</li>
<li>
Any package upgrade goes into "master".
</li>
<li>
Any documentation upgrade that refers to a feature
not present in stable goes into "master".
</li>
<li>
Anything else that doesn't affect the build goes
into "stable".
</li>
<li>
Any non-critical improvement to the main Makefile
goes into "stable".
</li>
<li>
Any improvement in the package download URLs or
package version recognition goes into "stable".
</li>
<li>
When in doubt, "master" is used rather than "stable".
</li>
</ul>
<p>
And this is how the branches relete to each other:
</p>
<ul class="compact-list">
<li>
Every change to the "stable" branch
will be merged into "master".
</li>
<li>
After a successful testing phase,
the "stable" branch
will be fast-forwarded to "master".
</li>
</ul>

<h3 id="issue-non-multilib">Issues without a 32-bit compiler</h3>
<p>
Certain packages contain native tools that are
currently 32-bit only. In order to build these on a
64-bit system, multi-lib support must be enabled in the
compiler toolchain. However, not all operating systems
support this.
</p>
<p>
To build the remainder of MXE, specify empty build rules
for the affected packages:
</p>
<pre>make \
ocaml-cairo_BUILD= \
ocaml-findlib_BUILD= \
ocaml-lablgtk2_BUILD= \
ocaml-camlimages_BUILD= \
ocaml-flexdll_BUILD= \

<h2 id="creating-packages">Guidelines for Creating Packages</h2>
<ol>
<li>
<p>
The package should be a
<a href="http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html">free</a>
<a href="http://www.debian.org/social_contract#guidelines">software</a>
<a href="http://www.opensource.org/osd.html">library</a>
that is really used by one of your applications.
</p>
<p>
BTW, we're always curious about the applications people are porting.
We maintain a
<a href="#used-by">list of projects</a>
which use MXE.
No matter whether your project is free or proprietary
&ndash; as long as it has its own website,
we'd be happy to link to it.
</p>
<p>
Also, feel free to link to us. :-)
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Grep through the <code>src/*.mk</code> files
to find a project that is most similar to yours.
(Really, <code>grep</code> is your friend here.)
</p>
<p>
For instance,
when adding a GNU library,
you should take a package like
<a href="https://github.com/mxe/mxe/blob/master/src/gettext.mk">gettext.mk</a>
or
<a href="https://github.com/mxe/mxe/blob/master/src/libiconv.mk">libiconv.mk</a>
as the base of your work.
When using a SourceForge project,
you could start with a copy of
<a href="https://github.com/mxe/mxe/blob/master/src/xmlwrapp.mk">xmlwrapp.mk</a>.
And so on.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Adjust the comments,
fill in the <code>$(PKG)_*</code> fields.
</p>
<p>
To fill the <code>$(PKG)_CHECKSUM</code> field, use a command such as (for file gettext.mk):
</p>
<pre>make update-checksum-gettext</pre>
<p>or:</p>
<pre>openssl sha1 pkg/gettext-x.y.z.tar.gz</pre>
<p>
if you have already downloaded the package
</p>
<p>
Be especially careful with the <code>$(PKG)_DEPS</code> section.
The easiest way to get the dependencies right
is to start with a minimal setup.
That is,
initialize MXE with <code>make gcc</code> only,
then check whether your package builds successfully.
</p>
<p>
Always list the dependency on <code>gcc</code> explicitly:
</p>
<pre>$(PKG)_DEPS := gcc ...</pre>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Add your package to the <a href="#packages">list of packages</a>.
</p>
<p>
Each package gets its own table row element with table cells
specifying your package name, official name and website:
</p>
<pre>
&lt;tr&gt;
&lt;td class="package"&gt;gettext&lt;/td&gt;
&lt;td class="website"&gt;&lt;a href="http://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/"&gt;gettext&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/td&gt;
&lt;/tr&gt;</pre>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Write your <code>$(PKG)_BUILD</code>.
If your library has a <code>./configure</code> script,
enable/disable all dependency libraries explicitly
via "<code>--enable-*</code>" and "<code>--disable-*</code>" options.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
You might also have to provide a patch for it.
In that case, have a look at other patches such as
<a href="https://github.com/mxe/mxe/blob/master/src/sdl-2-fix-dinput.patch">sdl-2-fix-dinput.patch</a>.
In particular, each patch file should be named as:
</p>
<pre>PACKAGE-PATCHNUMBER-DESCRIPTION.patch</pre>
<p>
and should start with:
</p>
<pre>This file is part of MXE.
See index.html for further information.
This patch has been taken from:
https://...</pre>
<p>
where the URL points to the
bugtracker entry,
mailing list entry or
website
you took the patch from.
</p>
<p>
If you created the patch yourself,
please offer it to the upstream project first,
and point to <em>that</em> URL,
using the same wording:
"This patch has been taken from:".
</p>
<p>
Depending on the feedback you get from the upstream project,
you might want to improve your patch.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
If you find some time,
please provide a minimal test program for it.
It should be
simple,
stand alone and
should work unmodified for many (all?) future versions of the library.
Test programs are named as:
</p>
<pre>PACKAGE-test.c</pre>
or
<pre>PACKAGE-test.cpp</pre>
<p>
depending on whether it is a C or C++ library.
To get a clue,
please have a look at existing test programs such as
<a href="https://github.com/mxe/mxe/blob/master/src/sdl-test.c">sdl-test.c</a>.
</p>
<p>
At the very end of your <code>*.mk</code> file
you should build the test program in a generic way,
using strict compiler flags.
The last few lines of
<a href="https://github.com/mxe/mxe/blob/master/src/sdl.mk">sdl.mk</a>
will give you a clue.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
You could also try to provide a <code>$(PKG)_UPDATE</code> section.
However, that requires some experience and "feeling" for it.
So it is perfectly okay if you leave a placeholder:
</p>
<pre>define $(PKG)_UPDATE
echo 'TODO: write update script for $(PKG).' &gt;&amp;2;
echo $($(PKG)_VERSION)
endef</pre>
<p>
We'll fill that in for you.
It's a funny exercise.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Check that you don't have "dirty stuff" in your <code>*.mk</code> files,
such as TAB characters or trailing spaces at lines endings.
Have a look at random <code>*.mk</code> files
to get a feeling for the coding style.
</p>
<p>
The same holds for your test program.
</p>
<p>
However, patch files should always appear
in the same coding style as the files they are patching.
</p>
<p>
When patching sources with crlf line endings, the patch
file itself should also have the same eol style. Use the
convention of naming the file as <code>*crlf.patch</code>
to instruct git not to normalise the line endings (defined
in <code>.gitattributes</code>).
</p>
<p>
Finally, in your <code>$(PKG)_BUILD</code> section,
please check that you use our portability variables:
</p>
<table class="translation">
<tr><td><code>bash</code></td> <td>&rarr;</td><td><code>$(SHELL)</code></td></tr>
<tr><td><code>date</code></td> <td>&rarr;</td><td><code>$(DATE)</code></td></tr>
<tr><td><code>install</code></td> <td>&rarr;</td><td><code>$(INSTALL)</code></td></tr>
<tr><td><code>libtool</code></td> <td>&rarr;</td><td><code>$(LIBTOOL)</code></td></tr>
<tr><td><code>libtoolize</code></td><td>&rarr;</td><td><code>$(LIBTOOLIZE)</code></td></tr>
<tr><td><code>make</code></td> <td>&rarr;</td><td><code>$(MAKE)</code></td></tr>
<tr><td><code>patch</code></td> <td>&rarr;</td><td><code>$(PATCH)</code></td></tr>
<tr><td><code>sed</code></td> <td>&rarr;</td><td><code>$(SED)</code></td></tr>
<tr><td><code>sort</code></td> <td>&rarr;</td><td><code>$(SORT)</code></td></tr>
<tr><td><code>wget</code></td> <td>&rarr;</td><td><code>$(WGET)</code></td></tr>
</table>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Check whether everything runs fine.
If you have some trouble,
don't hesitate to ask on the
<a href="http://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/mingw-cross-env-list">mailing list</a>,
providing your <code>*.mk</code> file so far.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Issue a
<a href="https://help.github.com/articles/creating-a-pull-request">pull request</a>
to propose your final <code>*.mk</code> file to us.
If you have trouble with pull requests,
send your file to the mailing list instead.
</p>
<p>
Either way,
don't forget to tell us
if there are some pieces in your <code>*.mk</code> file
you feel unsure about.
We'll then have a specific look at those parts,
which avoids trouble for you and us in the future.

<p>
The shell script has been rewritten as Makefile
and supports partial builds and parallel builds.
</p>
<p>
As usual,
this release also supports some new packages and
some newer versions of the already supported packages.

</p>
<p>
This release now includes a tutorial by Hans Bezemer
and has improved compile options of FLTK.
As usual, it supports some newer versions of the libraries.
</p>
<p>
At the <a href="http://www.fefe.de/nowindows/">request of its author</a>,
libowfat is no longer supported from this release on.
</p>
<p>
The script now uses a specific SourceForge mirror
instead of randomly chosen ones,
because the download phase
often stumbled on some very slow mirrors.

</p>
<p>
A sudden change in the download URLs of GEOS
made the automatic download fail.
<a href="http://www.w3.org/Provider/Style/URI">Such changes should never happen!</a>
But it happened,
and this quick release is an attempt to limit the damage.
</p>
<p>
This release also supports some newer versions of the libraries
including support for fontconfig-2.5.0.

</p>
<p>
This release is the result of the public attention the release 1.0 got.
It contains many improvements suggested by its first users,
and adds support for many new libraries.
</p>
<p>
Thanks to Rocco Rutte who contributed many code snippets.
