This is an attempt to document my steps in attempting to use Cygwin as a development platform for the slug under windows.
If I am successful, I will update this page appropriately, if not, I will post how I got stuck so that someone else might want to take over.
mkdir slug cd slug wget http://nslu2-linux.org/Makefile make setup-host-debian
(ok, it was worth a shot!)
from what I can tell, I need to install cyg-apt to get this to work, and add in an alias for apt-get
matt Says: October 19th, 2006 at 1:14 pm the cygwin-setup page referenced have stripped out all references to cyg-apt, with no word as to why. The google cache, http://tinyurl.com/v5u4q, is still (at the time of this writing) at one of the mirrors but gone from the main jessies.org cygwin setup page. excerpt: ———— Now install cyg-apt(1), a useful imitation of apt-get(1) which sadly isn’t itself packaged: wget http://www.lilypond.org/~janneke/software/cyg-apt chmod a+rx cyg-apt mv cyg-apt /bin cyg-apt setup cyg-apt update ———- there’s another link for cyg-apt at http://www.xs4all.nl/~jantien/software/cyg-apt but does not appear as up to date as the lilypond one.
Minor Snag: The cyg-apt needs python to be installed. In order to install python, I need to rerun the cygwin setup first.
