Description Micael Dias 2013-08-02 17:57:24 UTC

I was trying to cross compile mono from linux to windows i486 with mingw-gcc 4.7.2 and I got the following error:

../../../mono/metadata/threads.c:820:2: error: invalid 'asm': invalid expression as operand

I don't know much about assembly, so I cannot help with what might be the error, but it's a single line operation.

Could you try again with master ?
Comment 2 Micael Dias 2013-08-09 09:36:49 UTC
Tried with master. This specific error is gone, but now I have another:

  CCLD     monow.exe
ln -sf mono-sgen.exe mono.exe
make[4]: *** No rule to make target `mono-sgen', needed by `mono'.  Stop.
make[4]: Leaving directory `/tmp/mono-build/build-cross-windows/mono/mini'
make[3]: *** [all] Error 2
make[3]: Leaving directory `/tmp/mono-build/build-cross-windows/mono/mini'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/mono-build/build-cross-windows'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Maybe I should open another bug?

Cross compiling should now work with MXE: http://mxe.cc/
