in thread Compiling C/C++ based Modules under ActiveState using MinGW

I had problems with the MinGW installer you pointed to (5.0.3); but the latest one (5.1.3) worked o.k.

Oh ... I thought my link was to the latest available .... but apparently not. Can you send me the correct link(s) and I'll amend the post.

I encountered an error whilst dmaking a certain module

Which module ? I know I've seen that error, but that's about all I can recall about it.

The solution is to delete or rename Perl\site\lib\ActivePerl out of the way. The one in Perl\lib is newer ...

I don't quite follow. What exactly is it in Perl\lib that's "newer" ? Also Perl\site\lib\ActivePerl doesn't exist on build 819 (or 820).

I can't recall ever seeing any warnings or errors in relation to false - and I've never been asked to run dmake -S -s. (Do you have any further info on these aspects ?)

I think it would helpful if you'd mention what values you put in dmake's config.mk file (or any other files)

I've never put anything in dmake's config.mk file (or any other dmake files). All I ever do is place the startup directory and dmake.exe in the same location, and make sure that location is in the path. Perhaps that's what I should have said in my post - instead of referring to the dmake distro's Readme.txt ?

Thanks for taking the time to raise all of this, btw.

Cheers,
Rob

    If you do that, it will be out of date soon enough again. Instead, link to MinGW.exe download from SourceForge, which always shows the "current".

    Which module?

    If it mattered, I would have included it. The point is to prepare people for this event regardless of which module they're installing when it happens.

    What exactly is it in Perl\lib that's "newer" ?

    Perl\lib\ActivePerl is newer than Perl\site\lib\ActivePerl.

    Perl\site\lib\ActivePerl doesn't exist on build 819

    Ah, that may be true. It's probably left over from when I upgraded from an earlier build. At any rate, if I had this problem, others may as well.

    Do you have any further info on these aspects?

    Sorry, no. I figured it may not be a usual thing, which is why I said "if you receive it".

    Perhaps that's what I should have said in my post - instead of referring to the dmake distro's Readme.txt?

    Sure.

    My pleasure. Thanks for writing the tutorial in the first place! You saved me (and many others, I'm sure) countless hours of tedious rediscovery.
