Port for cygwin ?

Submitted by becker on Fri, 02/18/2005 - 18:13.


I have a motif application, which is running fine under Linux openmotif, but has problems with lesstif. Now, I want to compile it under cygwin. Unfortunately, there is only lesstif, but no openmotif.

Did one of you compile openmotif already for cygwin? Any hints?

Thanks in advance

Port for cygwin ?

I just ran ./configure followed by make. It built libXm.a ok which is all I cared about. The only problem when linking with my app is there was no readdir_r in my gcc libc so I hacked one from readdir.

Any news yet? Re: Port for cygwin ?

Hi Folks,

any news yet on an OpenMotif-Port for cygwin? I am in need since lesstif does not do it for me, unfortunately.

I ported a decades old app from SGI over to LINUX and now try to get it to work on Win with cygwin/x. No deal, since the XMT library, that this app uses, won't work with lesstif.

My point is:
Why does the OpenMotif-Code itself contain in a lot of places "#ifdef __CYGWIN__" Preprocessor-statements, if it is not allowed to port it? Obviously, people (who can) do so and even check in their code.
