I don't have cygwin installed. I'm going to search the forums a bit more see if I can't come up with a good answer. I'm eager to use the program, but am gettting too frustrated (being that I've been trying to build it for the last week) and thus, am not as motivated as I once was. Maybe I can find something easier to work with...

I uninstalled everything an reinstalled the following (in order):

cs-pseudo-stable-2006-01-27.zip
cs-win32libs-0.99r0_018.exe
MinGW-5.0.2.exe (minimal installation)
MSYS-1.0.11-2004.04.30-1.exe

I ran msys and typed the following:

Hmm... minimal installation. Perhaps that doesn't include the C compiler? Because configure seems to complain it can't find the C++ compiler. Perhaps try a typical installation of mingw instead?

no, I made sure the option for "c compiler" was clicked when I installed. I've given up trying to install crystal space. Too much hastle. Thanks for your time. Maybe I'll revisit when a  binary version of the application exists.

farewell...

Well c compiler alone is not enough. You need a c++ compiler too. I would try to avoid minimal installation. Use a 'typical' installation instead.

then end it and install the CS libs.

Run "g++ --version"

This should produce a similar result to gcc --version. If not, run the Mingw update program and select the "g++ compiler" from the install list.

The steps are described in the manual. Did you check that? If you have specific problems with understanding parts of that manual you can always ask here but normally it is all there.

jam install is really optional, and in fact should only be used by packagers.
One problem with it is that there's no uninstall target, so you have to do it by hand,
and may run into problems when you update or run other versions.

jam distclean removes all files produced by compilation, so that only should be
done when you want to restart building from scratch.
Stick to ./configure && jam and you'll be fine.

Please open a new discussion thread, stating your environment dev spec (OS, compiler version, CS version & revision),
and the exact errors you get (ie. ./walktest -console -verbose=-scf output).
This thread is so old I'd have locked it if I could wink
