According to the libsdl website, the latest version of SDL works well with Cygwin. How exactly does one get it to do so?
I’ve been struggling with it for a couple of days now… I’ve tried various installs of different development binaries, I’ve tried building it from source under Cygwin, and I haven’t had any success - the shell scripts and make files all complain about missing directories. I want to do native compiling, not cross development, and I can’t find any instructions anywhere on how to do that; the only docs on using gcc under Win32 are for cross compiling under mingw32.
Previously under Win32 I’ve only used SDL with Visual C++, and I don’t recall having any problems, got my first program with it running within maybe ten minutes of downloading the zip files… That was at work, though, and here at home I don’t have VC++ and would much rather use gcc if I can anyway.
How have other people gotten SDL to work under Cygwin? Any advice or experience would be much appreciated.
