Problems and more Problems

This is an old ar­ti­cle from 2012. I was a kid. I learned a lot since then, so please do think twice when tak­ing ad­vice from me as a kid.

So Al­le­gro 4.3 doesn’t work. Ap­par­ent­ly it has some­thing to do with me hav­ing up­dat­ed MinGW to 4.6.2 and hav­ing to re­com­pile all my li­braries and there­for all their de­pen­den­cies and in the end notic­ing I wouldn’t be able to com­pile the Mini­Di­rec­tX SDK need­ed for Al­le­gro.

Why re­com­pile? I think the rea­son is the new ex­cep­tion han­dling of MinGW: dw2 (Dwar­f2). This makes all the code com­piled with the sjlj (set-jump-long-jump) ex­cep­tion han­dling ar­chi­tec­ture in­com­pat­i­ble and seems to pro­duce strange re­sults like 0 kb *.exe-Files.

Well, I guess I don’t have a choice oth­er than in­stalling a new Pro­gram­ming Li­brary. I’m think­ing about Al­le­gro 5, SDL+GL, or SFML.
