GCC 8.2 or 7.4 distro available for BMX?
« on: December 31, 2018, 11:02:01 AM »
Hi everyone,

I wanted to update my BMX MinGW-Win32 compiler to GCC 8.2 (released in July) or 7.4. (released in December).
In general I use this site to get a working distribution: https://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64/files/

Sadly it hasn't been updated for ages. :(

Is there another / newer distribution available that works well with BMX?

Thanks
Grisu

Try the one Brucey provides in its NG releases?

Brucey's build is not compatible with my PRP project code. Thus I depend on external sources.

Did you raise an issue on github (for NG) ?

No, I don't bother Brucey with my lack of advanced coding skills.  ;)

Hi,

you could use the 'MinGW-W64 Online' Installer found in your link, and install what ever version you wish to try (8.1 seems to be the newest available).

Edit. See attached for 32-bit settings.

Yes.. but it works ? it's possibile compile a Win project (Architecture 64) ? ( asking before destroying my current NG setup )

NG is portable .... just copy your whole NG directory into "BLitzMaxNG.MyWorkingInstallation" and play with the other one - or name the other one how you like etc.

Pay attention to copy your source too - or at least use a "non quick" compile variant to avoid issues with precompiled stuff. Also important: if you update NG (bmk, bcc, ...) it is a very good idea to rebuild the modules to avoid trouble.

NG already has a fairly recent version of 7.3 gcc, so I don't believe there is enough reason to update.
