Hi, I have a question. Is anyone aware of any known problems that result when trying to compile the required libraries while using Cygwin on Vista? I am specifically having problems with glib (required to compile gtkmm.)

Thanks, Amanda

Addendum to the above: I have now decided to just compile on Windows. I would like to recommend not to use Cygwin for this project unless you are very comfortable with it, due to the large number of dependent libraries.


There is a CMakelists.txt in the main trunk code I checked out. I tried compiling using cmake (This is the natural reaction seeing a CMakelist.txt file) but later I found out that cmake is not supported I suggest removing the file or adding a line in the compilation wiki section / CMakelists.txt file saying its just experiment code and doesnt work.
