Chipmunk, Ruby and Windows

Post by DKnight »

Hi!
I was looking into using chipmunk for my project using gosu. It seems that it's almost impossible to compile this library for windows and ruby though.
I've tried compiling from windows, with msys, with no luck.
I've tried cross compiling it from linux, but I can't cross compile ruby successfully in the first place (it's a mess).
I've been searching for a solution all day, and all I've found is a pre compiled .so in these same forums, but it's outdated.
I seriously want to use this library, but I'm incredibly frustrated trying to get this to work in the first place. HELP PLEASE :cry:

Ok, after much grief I managed to compile the lib. I did it by compiling ruby inside msys and using that ruby and mingw make to build the extension.
Here it is, I hope it saves somebody from the headaches I had
