Compiling libpqxx-2.3.0 under Windows... - 08-31-2004 , 03:38 AM
Did anyone manage to compile libpqxx-2.3.0 for PostgreSQL 8.0 beta 1
under Windows 2000? I do not have Developer Studio but am using
Bloodshed Dev-Cpp which comes with MinGW. I tried to follow the
installation instructions for libpqxx, but it wouldn't work. It took
me almost a day to fiddle around with makefiles and such but I could
not make it work in the end.
Part of the problem seems to be that the PostgreSQL 8.0 beta 1
installation does not come with pg_config which is a shell script
under unix but does not run under Windows. Hence, the configuration
utility complains about pg_config not being available.
I tried it using cygwin and I tried it using MinGW/MSYS as well...
Could anyone who made it please just post the resulting dll or make it
somehow available? Any other help is appreciated as well.
I am fairly frustrated for now. I better go home now.
Thanks for any help.
