I cheated and compiled it under cygwin on Windows - most of the dependencies are
available from the cygwin-ports project, and I used cygwin's x11 based Qt
libraries. Feels funny running an X server and emacs on windows. Those
dependencies I couldn't find I built from source under cygwin too.
It compiled and ran (with a little huffing and puffing and minor tiddlings about
with the build system), which I guess is no enormous surprise since that's what
cygwin does for you - allow you to compile linux sources on windows. But it was
pleasing nevertheless that it did. It seemed quite happy to create segments,
edit them, save and load files, all that sort of stuff.
Naturally, pressing play did nothing ;-)
I compiled it with no ALSA, and I tried to use the windows sdk for JACK -
./configure seemed happy with this and it built but I don't know what actually
happened as a result of it.
I'm not sure what doing all that proved really! But it was quite fun doing it.
If I'm feeling brave/foolish/drunk enough over the coming days/weeks I might
have a look at how you "do midi" on windows. Maybe Jack2 can help out with that.
Dunno yet. I don't think ALSA can run under cygwin, I'd be mildly astonished if
it did but I could be wrong.
