Default RPM on Windows

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has tried building the RPM library
on Windows outside the Cygwin environment. Is this possible?

Thanks,
Dave

My goal would be to add functionality to an existing
native Windows binary application that can extract info
from RPM files. I'm not really very sold on the idea
of doing things this way (rather than extracting the
info on a Linux machine and then transferring the info
to the Windows machine that the app is running on).
However, I'd like to know what my options are.

You should be able to create a DLL which uses cygwin, and then link that to
you native app.

Hi,

Dave


When I first had to build RPMs I tried to do it with Cygwin as I've
already had the environment in place, but I'm afraid I never could build
anything else besides an RPM containing a zero-sized file. So in the end
I had to build RPMs on Linux. So personally I guess that building RPMs
on Windows OUTSIDE of Cygwin might be even more complicated, if not
impossible.

As I understand it, he's not talking about building the actual rpms on
Windows, though, just to build the rpm support code into a windows
application that will read rpm files already generated elsewhere.


Anyhow, maybe you are all aware of it already, but in many cases you may
build a "more native" (than the Cygwin variant) version of GNU-style
freeware packages by using the MinGW library. See http://www.mingw.org/.

The RPM runtime requires a Posix System. The placed question has already been discussed in the past, leading to the same consideration.
