Descision on build system.

Post by rene » Tue Oct 22, 2002 2:55 pm

When is a descision on build system going to be made?

The autoconf version looks nice. Is it portable enough? ie is it possible to generate msvc project files(or build using msvc some other way with autoconf)?

Anyone got blender to compile with mingw or cygwin yet?

I think crystal space went away from autoconf a year or so ago, as it was not portable enough for them. Maybe it is better now.

Cmake is very cool.
It can generate makefiles, and msvc workspaces(amongst others). It has many nice features.

Until further notice I'm going to be writing my code to the autoconf version. As that seems to be the easiest version for me to use at the moment.

Go blender!
