Description Alp Toker 2007-12-18 12:53:59 PST
There seem to be a few places where Windows code paths are selected using COMPILER(MSVC). This doesn't hold true when building the GTK+ port using GCC on Windows.
Comment 1 Alp Toker 2007-12-18 13:00:48 PST
Problem areas in WebCore are:

DateMath.cpp (localtime usage)

TCSpinLock.h (tests for MSVC)

FTPDirectoryParser.cpp (had to ifdef out a block here)

To get the GTK+ port building (not directly related to this bug, but here for the record):

Replaced the Freetype text code with a no-op backend (since my toolchain didn't come with FreeType for Windows and it'd result in non-native text rendering)

FileChooserGtk.cpp and LocalizedStringsGtk.cpp were using GNU intl stuff which I think these days is well-ported to Windows but which I was avoiding out of habit.

Made changes to WebKit.pri to avoid some curl-config/icu-config/pkg-config calls.

The Windows machine with the patches isn't here with me right now but the fixes were fairly obvious.

Bug is couple years old. Webkitgtk+ runs fine on windows now afaik.

Yes. The openSUSE builds are very good.

This bug is pretty old and a lot has changed in the last 8 years.
