Directories

If you didn't already install Mingw, this page will guide you through the process.

If you didn't already start an msys session, do so now. Just double click the MSYS shortcut or run C:\msys\1.0\msys.bat. An msys session will be opened, creating your profile directory at C:\msys\1.0\home\<windows login>. As you can see, MinGW uses your windows login as the user name in its fake UNIX environment. Be careful, I've not checked whether it works with non latin-character account names.

Now, use explorer or your favorite file manager and go to C:\msys\1.0\home\<windows login>. Create a directory there for all Synfig operations. For example, let it be synfig. Go into this directory.

Ok, now you are at C:\msys\1.0\home\<windows login>\synfig. Create four directories here:

  • _filez, for patches (and maybe later, additional files).
  • _src, for program sources.
  • build, for building programs.
  • temp, for local installation programs and libraries, which are required for building synfig. (For example: ETL, synfig (core for studio), OpenEXR, etc...)

Of course, you can choose your own name for all the directories and choose their locations. All you need then is to set a new path in the configuration file. But for now we choose the easy way.

Files

_src directory

Go to the C:\msys\1.0\home\<windows login>\synfig\_src directory. Get the latest sources of Synfig from its repository.

$ svn co https://synfig.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/synfig/ETL/trunk/  ETL
$ svn co https://synfig.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/synfig/synfig-core/trunk/  synfig-core
$ svn co https://synfig.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/synfig/synfig-studio/trunk/  synfig-studio

Note: The commands have a space between the URL address and the third paramater, it's easy to miss it. There should be three, space separated, paramaters in total after the "svn" command.

Download the current stable OpenEXR version from:

Finally, you must have three directories (ETL, synfig-core and synfig-studio) and the ilmbase-1.0.1.tar.gz & openexr-1.6.1.tar.gz files in your _src directory.

Configuration

This section describes the parameters of synbuild.conf file.

Files and Directories

As you can see in this section you can define the path and name of the special directories (with sources, patches and temporary directories). If you install the build scripts as written above, there is nothing to change.

Also this section contains the path and version of the OpenEXR source files.

External tools

In this section you need to define the path to the executable files of the three auxiliary packages: ImageMagick, Subversion and NSIS. ImageMagick and Subversion binaries are located using the PATH environment variable, but their paths are added to the end of the path list and so we can get name collisions. For example, the ImageMagick "convert" tool has the same name as the "convert" tool from Borland Delphi Explorer, which may have been installed before ImageMagick.

Build setup

MINGW_HOST - host parameter of "configure" script. Do not change it.

SYN_CORE_DEBUG_BUILD - if "yes", Synfig Core will be made with debug info.

SYN_STUDIO_DEBUG_BUILD - if "yes", Synfig Studio will be made with debug info.

Patches

In this section you can find a number of patch definition blocks, looking like this:

# ETL patches
ETL_PATCHES=$(cat <<:END_ETL:
:END_ETL:)

For example, if you place any filenames of patches between :END_ETL: blocks, it will be applied before the configuration of ETL. Patch files need to be stored in the _filez directory.

This section is useful if you want to test your own patches before sending them to the Synfig developers.

Autoconfiguration

This section contatins code which sets up the required environment variables and (by default) there is no need to change anything.

Build Order

Note: If you want build synfig without slowing down other tasks running on the same machine while the build takes place, open a single msys session, then open "Task Manager", search for the sh.exe process and set its priority to "Below normal".

Note: Running an on-access antivirus scanner can dramatically decrease compilation speed.

OpenEXR

This package needs to be built only once. A rebuild is only required if you get a new version or want to apply a new patch to it or you update the compiler and it is incompatible with the previous binaries.

In your msys console go to the C:\msys\1.0\home\<windows login>\synfig directory by typing:

$ cd ~/synfig

Then type:

$ ./make_openexr.sh

Wait for the "Done: OpenEXR" message.

ETL

Rebuild it when you get a new version of Synfig.

In your msys console go to the C:\msys\1.0\home\<windows login>\synfig directory by typing:

$ cd ~/synfig

Then type:

$ ./make_etl.sh

Wait for the "Done: ETL" message.

Synfig Core

Rebuild it when you get a new version of Synfig.

In your msys console go to the C:\msys\1.0\home\<windows login>\synfig directory by typing:

$ cd ~/synfig

Then type:

$ ./make_core.sh

Wait for the "Done: synfig-core" message. It can take a long time. The Synfig Core installer will be moved into the current directory.

Synfig Studio

Rebuild it when you get a new version of Synfig.

In your msys console go to the C:\msys\1.0\home\<windows login>\synfig directory by typing:

$ cd ~/synfig

Then type:

$ ./make_studio.sh

Wait for the "Done: synfig-studio" message. It can take a long time. The Synfig Studio installer will be moved into the current directory.

Additional tools

These tools are not required to build Synfig, but they can help in the debugging process.

P.S. Post this later. ;-)

(Atrus - keen to hear what you recommend for debug. Also any debug processes you go through to fix the bugs. There's several bugs (mainly preview rendering) that I see under the current builds of Windows that are not under Linux or the old 0.61.05 for Windows - Pxegeek 2/7/07)
