You can compile mudlet on windows too. If you follow the instructions and install the dependency packages right into c:\ it will work out of the box. If you install it anywhere else you'll need manual adjustments.
instructions: http://mudlet.sourceforge.net/wordpress/?page_id=30
If you've compiled it once, any further compiles will be only consist of deleting c:\mudlet, unpacking the new source package, starting qt-console, cd c:\mudlet, qmake, make release, copy c:\mudlet\src\release\mudlet.exe into the directory containing the libs & the old mudlet.exe from the windows installer. So it's a bit of pain once, but after that it's simple.

Dual boot is always a nasty thing. Unless you know what you are doing you should stay away from trying to fix it and stay with windows instead in my opinion.

I can't release a new windows binary package before Sunday at the earliest as way too much new stuff has been added and it isn't finished yet.

Thanks for the tips. I'll definitely look at compiling it for windows.

Though I'll still go back and sort out the dual boot. It went smoothly enough on my laptop, I just made the one mistake this time round. I won't try to fix anything, I'll just reinstall ubuntu - the install was only a day old anyway so its not like I lost much.

I installed qt4.
I unpacked lua and scintilla to C:\

Code: Select all

C:\QScintilla-gpl-2.3.2\Qt4>qmake

C:\QScintilla-gpl-2.3.2\Qt4>make
'make' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
^ As you can see, I did as instructed in the correct directory.
Something is missing.

I couldn't make lua either. The instruction says "make mingw" but it doesn't say from which directory. I tried every directory I could think of, but I get the same error.

What have I missed?

Have you installed the qt4.5 SDK ?
On windows you should go for qt4.5 directly and install the SDK bundle that you can get here:
http://www.qtsoftware.com/downloads/sdk-windows-cpp

When you have installed the SDK, open the qt command console. You can find this program in the qt4.5 sdk program folder.
*THEN* make etc. will be configured correctly if you issue your commands from this special console.

Yeah I did that first, and the quote I showed was what happened in the qt4 command console.

Obviously the path to make isn't set correctly on your system. In the Qt-prompt console go to directory:
C:\QScintilla-gpl-2.3.2\Qt4>
then type:
qmake
then
"c:\Qt\2009.02\mingw\bin\mingw32-make.exe"
That's it

I have just had a look at the windows compile and found that some of the dependencies have upgraded their packages and that what I have described before is not valid anymore - at least it requires a fair bit of knowledge to get Mudlet to compile on windows.
For most people it's simply unrealistic to get this to work. I have just released an updated windows installer as a pre-beta-10-git-snapshot version for windows. This is can be found in a seperate snapshot package in the download section.
