Hi!

I am trying to cross compile the Alsa library for Windows with Cygwin. I dont know if this approach is proper, but I dont know how to be able to build the library in order to cross compile my application in my iMX8X board.

I have been trying to ./configure, make and make install via cygwin but this is not working.

Any idea how should I approach to cross compile Alsa for Windows? I am thinking about using a linux VM and compile it there, it seems much easier to be honest.

Thanks for your time,
Ander.

You are asking at the wrong forum.
This forum is about CDT related issues
and not about fixing project specific problems.

Try alsa-project.org.

Cygwin should be closest to Linux but
IIRC, ALSA needs other packages and may not work with
Windows drivers. After all, Cygwin is an emulator that
is really running windows code made to look like Linux.

So, is there no option to be able to compile Alsa to be able to use it on windows Eclipse?
Should I approach this by configuring a VM with Ubuntu and Eclipse so I could cross compile everything there?

I have tried to look on alsa-project but nothing appears for Windows.

Thanks for the forum aclaration!

ALSA is Advanced Linux Sound Architecture. It is tightly tied with the Linux kernel.

I doubt that there is suitable support for it in a Windows machine.
