AltME: R3 Building and Porting

Messages

(but I did not use HostileFork's instructions)
Marco
Could you please give me the instructions?
Ladislav
which R3 did you use as r3-make?
Ladislav
could you try again using an interpreter from http://www.rebolsource.net/
Marco
Idem for the interpreter found on rebolsource.net

I did it, and at some point added a few notes, but they don't appear to be there any more.
Marco
with the console version it does not crash but gcc still gives error: CreateProcess: No such file or directory
Maxim
I've had troubles too.   a few notes:
-the rebol scripts in the current community distro do not work properly with saphirion'ts latest build... something to do with the use of 'FUNCTION vs 'FUNC .   I've had to edit at least one script.
-the CreateProcess error is due to local dir handling which is pretty screwed up, if you launch the make from a windows prompt. either create a batch file which does a CD first or use the -C option in make to tell make to change directory internally before interpreting the make file.
if you haven't done so, you might also want to add the msys package and make sure you've got a folder in your PATH environment which points to a folder with a proper  make.exe  (not the mingw_make) function.
Marco
yes, something wrong with paths. If I use : make TOOLS=c:/minGW/bin/ it starts but complains about not finding a .dll so now how I can I tell it to search for it in that dir? or How can I make a folder in my PATH environment which points to a folder with a proper make.exe?
Marco
I surrender so I tried to copy ALL  lib*.dll in c:/minGW/bin to c:/minGW/bin/msys/1.0/bin and it worked !!
Marco
So to summerize it if you have Win7:
Follow hostilefork instructions but:
- download R3-*-console.exe from http://www.rebolsource.net/  and use it as r3-make.exe
- copy ALL lib*.dll from c:/minGW/bin to c:/minGW/bin/msys/1.0/bin
- as the last command use $ make TOOLS=c:/minGW/bin/
good luck! Tell me if you find a shorter/simpler way.

Max, are you up and running on MSVC?
Maxim
not quite... running around on three projects... a lot of analysis on stone in the last few days.

Any QT + R3 integration going on?
I would prefer VID + R3
Robert
Why then ask for QT? And, no not that I know about.
Did you try R3-GUI?
eFishAnt
I was for a short time, I will look again...thanks Robert.  and happy New Year!
NickA
eFishAnt, have you tried Marco's http://www.rebol.org/view-script.r?script=vid1r3.r3 ?  It lets you run many R2 VID layouts directly in R3.  You need http://www.rebol.net/builds/#section-2 to use it.

eFishAnt
Thanks I wll do some other experiments.
