Folks:

Thank you for MinGW!

A user of my open source p2p secure cloud storage system project had trouble building with mingw, and he eventually traced the problem to this:

http://allmydata.org/pipermail/tahoe-dev/2009-June/001978.html

He tested the fix of removing the 'time' symbol from msvcr90.a and that allowed him to build successfully.

This appears to be the same issue as http://lists.zerezo.com/mingw-users/msg11190.html and may also be related to http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2134161&group_id=2435&atid=302435 .

Regards,

Zooko

  • I've followed the links and it appears that you have a patch for your application. Is this still an issue?

    I've also encountered this issue when trying to build pyOpenSSL, a Python extension which wraps OpenSSL. For now, it looks like I'll have to require MSVC when building pyOpenSSL for newer versions of Python.

     
  • I've removed the time symbol from libmsvcr90.a and libmsvcr90d.a.
