Can we add mingw-w64-gettext to depends? libglib-2.0-0.dll needs libintl-8.dll.

dll.a are ok if you compile with mingw-w64 but if you want to link in visual studio you need a .lib,

gstreamer official windows binaries are builded with mingw

and they work with msvc

.lib are generated this way:

I need .lib for glib to be able to link my gstreamer packages in visual studio,

I know about c++ but glib is a c library.

Actually the only problem is that .lib generated with dlltool in arch don't work with all msvc versions but this could be fixed in future updates, anyway packaging .def files make easier to regenerate the .lib directly on windows using lib.exe

Why are the contained import libraries not sufficient? Note that import libraries have the extension `dll.a` in mingw-w64 packages (and not `lib`).

I would also say that it is not recommend to mix mingw-w64 with msvc. It might work with pure C libs but will fail when using C++.

please add import library for linking in Visual Studio, patch here:

the generated .lib does not work with all msvc compiler versions anyway having the .def files make easier regenerate the .lib directly on windows using lib.exe instead of dlltool

Can you please apply the following patch?

You've just reminded me to push the commit to mingw-w64-gettext.

Schala commented on 2016-08-17 22:07

ack, forgot the last part -_-

pnyetmja: I will fix this problem with the static Qt package in the next update. To avoid hard coding I will use pkgconfig.

However, this package would need a slight fix to make it work:
This is because the bug pnyetmja already mentioned:
But please do not include this fix until the pkgconfig file for intl is included in mingw-w64-gettext.

Adding -liconv after -lintl in qmake.conf solves problem
Thank you
