#1102 Bootstrapping MinGW packages in devel branch (F-11)
Closed: Fixed None Opened 13 years ago by rjones.

We have applied for the following MinGW packages to be added to CVS:

These three packages have a circular dependency, so we would like rel-eng's help in creating the initial Koji repository. The circular dependency and how we normally break it is described here:


If the two noarch binary packages mingw32-runtime and mingw32-w32api from our temporary repository (http://www.annexia.org/tmp/mingw/fedora-10/i386/RPMS/) can be added then we can build mingw32-gcc from source followed by mingw32-runtime and mingw32-w32api from source, and then the circular dependency is broken.

To minimize the time in which the non-built packages are in koji, lets coordinate the building. We'll untag the imported versions so that they can get garbage collected earlier.

This should happen after the CVS admin step is done so that koji itself is ready to take the packages.

These were imported, and made available for build.

I've built mingw32-gcc, mingw32-runtime and mingw32-w32api from source.

Thanks jkeating.
