This page describes (re)building of KDE binary packages using the kdewin distribution.

{{Moved To Community|Windows/Imported From TechBase/Build/{{#titleparts:{{PAGENAME}}||4}}}}
 
+
Applications build in this way will not have debugging support because the packages build in release mode do not have any debug symbols. If you need debug symbols you should use the [[Getting Started/Build/KDE4/Windows/emerge|Windows ''emerge'' tool]]
+
 
+
It is assumed that KDE is installed using the KDEWin gui or console installer in %PROGRAMFILES%\kde and a developer tries to recompile the kdeedu binary package.
+
It is also assumed that the KDE installation tree is empty or contains only packages for the related compiler.
+
 
+
== (Re)building packages for MS Visual Studio C++ ==
+
 
+
* download [http://www.winkde.org/pub/kde/ports/win32/installer/kdewin-installer-gui-latest.exe KDE windows installer]
+
 
+
* run the installer in '''Package Manager Mode''' and select '''msvc compiler'''
+
 
+
* choose the '''all''' category and select (at least) the following packages   
+
** kdeedu bin and source package - this will also select all depending packages
+
** automoc (or use [http://www.winkde.org/pub/kde/ports/win32/repository/other/automoc4.exe static version])
+
** cmake
+
** perl
+
** psdk-msvc
+
** one of the vcexpress-xx-msvc package
+
** the development packages required for building the requested package. In the Package Manager mode of the gui installer you can see the required package dependencies by clicking on the package name (only first level dependency yet). For the kdeedu package the development package for kdelibs-msvc, kdebase-runtime-msvc, phonon-msvc and qt-msvc are required.
+
 
+
* install the selected packages using the installer.
+
 
+
* open a Visual Studio command prompt
+
 
+
* set the required environment for the MS Platform SDK e.g. if your are using the 2003 R2 Release of the Platform SDK the command line looks like that:
+
    "%PROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2\setenv.cmd"
+
 
+
* add the bin subdirectory of the kde installation dir to the PATH environment variable:
+
  set PATH=%PROGRAMFILES%\kde\bin;%PATH%
+
 
+
* enter src subdirectory of the kde installation root
+
  cd %PROGRAMFILES%\kde\src
+
 
+
* create a build directory and enter it
+
  mkdir kdeedu-msvc-build && cd kdeedu-msvc-build
+
 
+
* run cmake
+
  cmake.exe -G "NMake Makefiles" ..\kdeedu-msvc-4.1.3 -DCMAKE_INCLUDE_PATH=%PROGRAMFILES%\kde\include -DCMAKE_LIBRARY_PATH=%PROGRAMFILES%\kde\lib -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=%PROGRAMFILES%\kde
+
 
+
* build
+
    nmake
+
 
+
* install the compiled package
+
    nmake install
+
 
+
== (Re)building packages for the MinGW compiler ==
+
 
+
* download [http://www.winkde.org/pub/kde/ports/win32/installer/kdewin-installer-gui-latest.exe KDE windows installer]
+
 
+
* run the installer in '''Package Manager Mode''' and select '''mingw compiler'''
+
 
+
* choose the '''all''' category and then select the following packages
+
** the kdeedu bin and source package - this will also select all depending packages
+
** automoc (or use [http://www.winkde.org/pub/kde/ports/win32/repository/other/automoc4.exe static version])
+
** cmake
+
** gcc-mingw
+
** perl
+
** the development packages required for building the requested package. In the Package Manager mode of the gui installer you can see the required package dependencies by clicking on the package name (only first level dependency yet). For the kdeedu package the development package for kdelibs-mingw, kdebase-runtime-mingw, phonon-mingw and qt-mingw are required.
+
 
+
* install the selected packages using the installer. For the gcc-mingw package use \Mingw as installation root.
+
 
+
* add bin subdirectory of the mingw installation dir to the PATH environment variable
+
    set PATH=\Mingw\bin;%PATH%
+
 
+
* add bin subdirectory of the kde installation dir to the PATH environment variable
+
    set PATH=%PROGRAMFILES%\kde\bin;%PATH%
+
 
+
* enter src subdirectory of the kde installation root e.g.
+
    cd %PROGRAMFILES%\kde\src
+
 
+
* create a build directory and enter it
+
    mkdir kdeedu-mingw-build && cd kdeedu-mingw-build
+
 
+
* run cmake
+
    cmake.exe -G "MinGW Makefiles" ..\kdeedu-mingw-4.1.3 -DCMAKE_INCLUDE_PATH=%PROGRAMFILES%\kde\include -DCMAKE_LIBRARY_PATH=%PROGRAMFILES%\kde\lib -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=%PROGRAMFILES%\kde
+
 
+
* build
+
    mingw32-make
+
 
+
* install the compiled package
+
    mingw32-make install
+
 
+
== Make a binary package for the KDE on windows distribution ==
+
 
+
* run the installer in '''Package Manager Mode''' and select '''kdewin-installer(-mingw|-msvc) '''
+
 
+
* install the above mentioned packages with <make-tool> install
+
 
+
* run kdewin-packager from kde installation bin dir with the following options:
+
  - name <the name of the package>
+
  - version <the package version e.g. 1.2.3 or 20090312
+
  - type <msvc> or <mingw> depending on the type of used compiler
+
  - root <the install root where the package has been installed into>
+
  - srcroot <the root of the source package tree>
+
  - destdir <the directory where the package will be placed into>
+
