Building Basilisk II in MinGW under Windows

Sat Mar 04, 2017 11:58 pm

Following the excellent guide, I was able to set up MinGW and Msys and build SDL, but I'm having trouble with Basilisk II. When I try to ./configure, I get this error message:

checking whether VirtualProtect works... no
configure: error: Sorry, Windows VM functions don't work as expected on your system.

Is that possibly because I'm doing this under 64-bit Windows 10? Or is there an easy fix?

And is it necessary (under Windows) to build BII before building SheepShaver (which is my actual goal here)?

I don't think you need to build BII to build SS, but I think SS uses the slirp code from the BII source DIR.

Thank you for that. Unfortunately, I'm getting the same error message when building SS under 32-bit Windows 7, so any advice on building in MinGW would be welcome. (Maybe the best advice is "Try it under Cygwin"?)
