Description Igor Korot 2005-08-30 22:56:39 UTC
When you install wxGTK-2.6.1, and then try to build samples, you will receive 
error complaining about directory "../../build msw/makefile". This directory 
is for the MS Visual Studio. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Unmask the wxGTK-2.6.1 packet. 
2. Run "emerge =wxGTK-2.6.1" 
3. Go to /usr/share/doc/wxGTK-2.6.1/sample and issue the command "make -f" or "make -f makefile.gcc" 
Actual Results:  
The samples will not be compiled. 

Expected Results:  
Samples should be compiled.

Some of the samples are only for Windows, so you'll have to build the ones that
work for your platform individually.
Comment 2 Igor Korot 2005-08-31 13:17:43 UTC
wxGTK is platform-independent package, so no matter where, samples should be 
compiled fine. They might not run, but at the very least compiled. However, no 
one samples is to be compiled!!
Comment 3 Rob Cakebread (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-08-31 13:54:47 UTC
wxGTK is not platform-independent. It doesn't compile on Windows. The Windows
version of wxWidgets doesn't use GTK at all. See for details.

If you have a problem with the samples not compiling please take it up with
wxWidgets or provide a patch to ignore the Windows and Visual Studio source.
