Re: [Chicken-users] Chicken on Windows 10 - Was: [ANN] CHICKEN 5.0.0 rel

Hi Joerg,

I was trying C5rc1 on win10 i few weeks ago and had to do some tweaking to get it working og msys2 (which was surprisingly comfortable to use).

I also had a problem with chicken-install not downloading anything at first. The symptom became clearer when I did chicken-install -update-db. I realised I wasn't using an absolute path for PREFIX when invoking make. Doing something like make PLATFORM=mingw-msys PREFIX=C:/c5/ solved the issue, maybe you've run into the same problem?

I never tried to change the defaults, so this may be completely unrelated.

Hi all,

who is running chicken on Windows 10 here? How do you manage? I'm not sold
to msys; I just tried first time and failed miserably.

Any idea how to do a better setup (for chicken 5 release candidates)

Maybe we can fix the support for msys2 nevertheless;
So far I found two issues on Windows 10 + msys2 + mingw-w64:

1. chicken-install does not pick up the contents of setup.defaults by

   Workaround: chicken-install -defaults

   -- which is saying: give the defaults from the installation on the
command line again.
   -- This does the download and generates the build scripts (*.build.bat)

2. Using "start" to open a window running cmd.exe I found that I can not
call chicken-do using the full path. As it is in the PATH variable I tried
to copy the invocation line with only the path leading to chicken-do

   This leads to:
   /usr/local/bin/csc -host -D compiling-extension -J -s -setup-mode -I
C:\msys64\home\... ...
   creating subprocess failed
