Building Mumble on Windows
Mumble has quite a few dependencies for building on Windows, and as the feature set grows, so does the list of dependencies. This page will try to detail the steps required to set up a Win32 build environment.
The paths used here equal the defaults assumed in the Mumble build files. You are free to change them, but you'll then need to change the mumble.pro file as well.
Also note, that if you are submitting a bug report for a selfbuilt executable, we expect you to either
- Follow these instructions to the letter
- Report any deviations from these instructions
Deviations means anything, from "I installed to the D: drive" to "I changed the gcc build options for Qt" or "I used another version of Speex".
Create C:\dev, and inside that directory create a file prep.bat containing:
@echo off SET PATH=C:\dev\MinGW\bin;C:\dev\Qt4.2.2\bin;%PATH% SET QTDIR=C:\dev\Qt4.2.2
Start a new command shell (run cmd.exe) and
C: CD \dev prep.bat
Whenever something appears
you're supposed to enter it in that command shell. When you later want to compile things, remember to call prep.bat first to set paths correctly.
Create a directory c:\dev\MinGW
Download the following files:
and unzip them all to the C:\dev\MinGW directory. GDB is an installer, install it to C:\dev\MinGW
Go into the bin directory and copy mingw32-make.exe to make.exe.
