Updated to 2.7.14. Enjoy!

you can now take advantage of the mingw-configure script to simplify PKGBUILD and set the right compilation flags:
- set makedepends=mingw-w64-configure instead of mingw-w64-gcc|pkg-config
- use ${_arch}-configure instead of
../configure \
--prefix=/usr/${_arch} \
--host=${_arch} \
--build=$CHOST \
--enable-shared \

Hi Dr-Shadow,

Is there any chance you can email me at mingw dot android at gmail dot com to discuss future directions for this, in regard to:


xantares commented on 2014-10-19 08:25

orphaned, take care of it!

Dr-Shadow commented on 2014-10-18 19:34

Same here, I could build mingw-w64-python2 ver2.7.8 with patches from there :

(I only replaced patches + pkgver/rel in PKGBUILD)

We should add tcl/tk for tkinter (and idle). It's currently failing to find the libs / headers even if I add them as a dependency.

xantares commented on 2014-01-23 17:05

It's okay now!

The current state is: builds but interpreter crashes for i686, works for x86_64.

I think python2.exe should be called instead, I've not heard from the mingwandroid guy, let's be patient.

As far as I can find out python2 is required to build this package. Could you either confirm that it builds without it installed or add it to the makedepends?

xantares commented on 2013-10-18 09:07

Yep, nothing like a fresh reboot,
like in the good old days :/


xop commented on 2013-10-18 09:05

Ok, after reboot I've managed to build it. I think binfmt-wine should be added to builddeps.

xop commented on 2013-10-18 08:51

Yes, it was during the build. Installing binfmt-wine fixed this issue, but I've got more build errors, which are really weird (ld crashing with segfault). I'll recheck everything and if errors persist I'll report them here.

Sorry for not being very informative in first message, and thank you for your work.

xantares commented on 2013-10-18 08:35

What do you mean ?
During the build ?
Could you try install binfmt-wine and retry ?

xop commented on 2013-10-18 08:20

It seems like you forgot something :(
