Hardware donations

w00t!!!

A thanks to the following people/groups for some recent hardware:

Gensei: Smartcard reader + cards for AMD64 testing and integration into some of my embedded projects.

Tavros: Antec 500w PSU + opteron 248 + MSI SMP mobo to replace my aging socket 754 3000+

Thanks everyone!

Part 1: tools for win32 development in linux

emerge the following packages to create a development environment:


dev-util/xmingw-binutils
dev-util/xmingw-gcc
dev-util/xmingw-runtime
dev-util/xmingw-w32api
app-emulation/wine

Use the following as a template for win32 makefiles:

CC=i386-mingw32msvc-gcc
CFLAGS=-O2 -pipe -std=c99 -mno-cygwin -mno-sse -mno-sse2 -mno-mmx -mthreads -DWIN32 -D_WIN32 -D_WINDOWS

helloworld.exe: helloworld.o
$(CC) $(CFLAGS) -luser32 -o $@ $?

helloworld.o: helloworld.c helloworld.h
$(CC) $(CFLAGS) -o $@ -c $<

NOTE: Now is not a good time to rice out your cflags. Debugging win32 code is hard enough without the compiler playing tricks on you.

To test your new win32 program:

wine ./helloworld.exe

Part 2 will talk about how to create win32 DLLs and import libraries.

*EDIT* I’m sick of all the lame losers out there that keep spamming my blog, so no more comments until something can be worked out
