I’m only a beginner with SDL, mingw etc, but here goes…
I’ve downloaded mingw, and msys 1.0.10 and set both up on winxp successfully.
I’ve also downloaded SDL-devel-1.2.12-mingw32.tar.gz and extracted the directory.
I’ve been able to successfully make use of the prebuilt sdl.dll that comes in
the download in some small trial programs.
Now I want to use SDL_ttf, and for this it seems my life will go a lot smoother
if I properly install SDL-1.2.12 as per the instructions on the net that say run
’./configure’ then ‘make’ then ‘make install’ inside the msys shell.
The SDL-1.2.12 download I got has no configure file for SDL.
I’m not sure if I am not doing something right here?
I have noticed that the makefile already exists and provides two options
Either ‘native’ or ‘cross’ which seem to want locations that do not exist.
I am not sure how I should proceed from here to get the most reliable end
(basically so that my life is hassle free when I go to get SDL_ttf configured
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated
