Re: [cdt-dev] Answering a poor post

The message stating that I had been posting in a moderated forum and I must wait until a moderator accepts my post. :)

It is online now though.

I don’t think the form is moderated.  At least as a committer I was always able to post so you should too.

What happens that makes you feel it is moderated?

I shared the three (very simple) steps I always perform to setup my C++ development environment (with MinGW). This should be easily reproducible for anyone, when the moderated post comes online…

My main issue with Cygwin is that the cygwin runtime has a pretty restrictive license. You can only do open source works with it.

At least Qt made an LGPL version that provided more freedom for the developer. And enabling an LGPL Qt install with CDT would also be something I'd love to have with the Eclipse C/C++ IDE.

This guy just did not install the gcc compiler tools from Cygwin...Installing the gnu tools is an optional feature of the Cygwin installer... so no one can help him in this desperate case except to tell him to install the gnu gcc tool set ...

By the way, I confirm that -- on a W7/x86_64/Cygwin platform -- even the provided HelloWorld sample does not work... see this issue and this one is always pending

Letting those two issues opened won't help in getting beginner CDT's  user happy with CDT on a W7/x86_64/Cygwin platform (I am talking only of Cygwin, because I never tested MinGW, one problem at a time..)

I saw this a little while ago.  It sounds un-justified to me but since I don’t use Windows I can’t really answer.

I know many of you are using Cygwin or MinGW with CDT.

My guess is that this user didn’t configure things right.

Can someone who uses CDT on Windows confirm (nicely J) to him/her (and everyone else that might fall on this post)

that things do work and that the user probably is facing poor configuration of his toolchain?


We’re going to get some frustrated users even if it is not justified, but I don’t like to see these posts

go un-answered as if they were correct.

sorry to say this but,
after days of working on windows 7 64bit with cygwin and mingw,
i concluded that cdt on windows eclipse is the worst thing on development.

it really doesn's work.

if someone struggling with errors like "eclipse Program "gcc" not found in PATH",
forget about it, and install the visual studio of microsoft.

as of last update's of cygwin and mingw, cdt isn't working, and nobody did'nt found how to do it.
