====== Running Rosegarden under Cygwin on Windows ======
This page is intended to document my journey trying to compile and run Rosegarden under Cygwin on Windows.
===== Why?? =====
Why document it? Because visibility and transparency is a good thing, as is sharing knowledge and pain.
Why do it? Because my work have given me a nice shiny new powerful Windows laptop which I use all the time now, and it would be nice to simply and conveniently dip in and out of Rosegarden on it. Plus, I have a desire to write a Jack midi/audio adapter for Rosegarden, at which point Rosegarden might be runnable on a Mac as well, and it gives an alternative to the reliance on ALSA on linux (albeit the dependency is hidden behind Jack, but you get what I mean).
====== Steps ======
First job to do - install Cygwin on my laptop. Next job, get hold of the RG source, try to build in the traditional linux way and see what the compiler moans about. The next step depends on those moans...
