Re: Problems compiling ImageMagick

Hi Rene!
First tought: why do you want to compile ImageMagic? is the version distributed
by Cygwin not working?
There are some reasons: One is that I do also sometimes like to use apache with perl cgis. The apache under cygwin needs cygwin-Perl. And I use perl-scripts for Image manipulating. And activeperl works good with precompiled ImageMagick, but I cannot use both perls (already tried) since they have conflicts. So I decided to compile ImageMagick alone and normally this is no problem. (I have not only these two PCs, there is one that at my boyfriend and one laptop) and all work fine. Just this one at my home does not want to work.
About the linker messages: can you compile a simple program? do you have the
required pre-requisites to compile ImageMagic?
A simple selfwritten program can be compiled and started. The prerequisites should be OK. I checked with the config.log from the bureau-PC and the Home-PC with a diff tool.
I assume you are using a shell (bash probably) in a terminal window (Windows
cmd.exe or rxvt), can you list the required library: "ls -al
/usr/bin/cygbz2-1.dll" (I see a 56K file).

$ ls -al /usr/bin/cygbz2-1.dll

But it could really be that something in the Windows environment is
buggy since the errors remained after deleting cygwin.

Deleting Cygwin means you don't have the linker (and compiler) so where could
the errors come from?

No, I meant that I deleted the whole C:\cygwin directory and all tmps and installed new in d:\cygwin
Perhaps we have a wrong idea of what you are trying to do. Could you be more
I try to be.But basically I have installed cygwin from scratch and try to compile ImageMagick. And on my other computers this works fine, so I think I do not something basicaly wrong.

Thanks a lot in advance, Dani
