Some notes on installation
I use a mingw/msys environment to build/compile Navit, and CodeBlocks to edit. Personally I found that getting the mingw/msys environemnt under Windows to work took a bit of effort. However, once it is set up it works fine. Following are my installation notes.
Install MinGW from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=2435 (select Automated MinGW installer) Install MSYS etc as per the instructions at http://www.mingw.org/wiki/msys Install GTK from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=98754 (select gtk+-win32-devel) Install CodeBlocks (NB, the version without mingw bundled in) - (I use the latest Nightly Build avaialible from the CodeBlocks wiki rather than the release as the overnight build has all the features.) Run the msys shell, cd /usr, mkdir local, cd /usr/local, mkdir share Fix /c/GTK/bin/autopoint or /usr/local/bin/autopoint (line 117) to handle DOS paths, and fix the install path (line 29) to be C:/GTK or /usr/local 29: prefix="/c/GTK" 117: replace "curr_installdir=`echo "$curr_executable" | sed -e 's,/[^/]*$,,'`" with: case "$curr_executable" in ?:\\*) curr_installdir=`echo "$curr_executable" | sed -e 's,\\\\[^\\\\]*$,,'` ;; *) curr_installdir=`echo "$curr_executable" | sed -e 's,/[^/]*$,,'` ;; esac Remove "pixman-1" from inside /c/GTK/lib/pkgconfig/cairo.pc Download SVN "trunk" source tree to C:\navit Copy /mingw/share/aclocal/*.m4 files to /usr/share/aclocal. NB, AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION etc defined in these files cd /c/navit/trunk/navit ./autogen.sh If you get the error 'Can't locate object "path" via package "Autom4te::Request"' then delete /c/navit/trunk/navit/autom4te.cache and run autogen.sh again: As per http://www.arcknowledge.com/gmane.comp.sysutils.autoconf.general/2004-06/msg00028.html "That can happen if you have a stale cache (ie. generated by an older version)" ... consequently: rm -fR ./autom4te.cache and then autoconf -f works fine :-) Repeat autogen.sh multiple times, may need to do the following if there are errors. Instead of running ./autogen.sh can do: autoreconf --verbose autopoint --force aclocal --verbose automake --add-missing libtoolize --force autoreconf --verbose Add X11/XF86keysym.h to ./navit/support/win32/sys (or C:\MinGW\include) Add "#define SIGWINCH 28" definition to /c/mingw/include/signal.h Add "typedef unsigned int speed_t" etc to /c/mingw/include/sys/types.h To enable serial GPS under Windows, refer to bug 332 on trac (http://trac.navit-project.org/ticket/332): Copy serial_io.h and serial_io.c to navit/support/win32, and add serial_io.c to Makefile.am Edit function vehicle_file_io in vehicle_file.c to inluce WIN32 support ./configure "windres" may need to be added to ./navit/Makefile in WINDRES line Edit ./int/localename.c to to fix SUBLANG defintions: SUBLANG_BENGALI_INDIA,SUBLANG_BENGALI_BANGLADESH, SUBLANG_PUNJABI_INDIA,SUBLANG_PUNJABI_PAKISTAN, SUBLANG_ROMANIAN_ROMANIA, SUBLANG_ROMANIAN_ROMANIA make
Navit should then compile.
