Let me put it like this:
I have successfully cross-compiled ed2k_gui on my debian box for win32 using
mingw32. The resulting .exe seems to run fine on windows using the dropline
gtk runtime library package, BUT the networking part (gnet) does not seem to
work (it does not even resolve localhost), even though gnet2 should work fine
on windows. I am suspecting some issue with the cross-compiling part here,
but I don't have the slightest idea what the problem is. Ironically, the
networking part of that very same .exe works perfectly fine under WINE on
linux (WINE is a windows emulator that can run windows .exe files under
As I do not have a windows system myself, and I do not plan to install one
either, it will take a win32 programmer to figure out the problems.
Possibly ed2k_gui will work just fine if it is compiled natively on win32. I
have not tried, and I do not know of anyone else who has. But given that it
cross-compiles fine, it should be a piece of cake to make it compile in a
native win32 environment as well.
If you are a win32 programmer, and want to give it a shot, please do :)
