OSC under Windows

Feature state

Description

i think that port OSC under windows will be really usefull, everybody know what osc is, but use it under windows can allow me and lots of developer/packager to work on packages even if they are running windows for any reason

I tried running osc under cygwin. It gave me some permission issues. I don't know if the issue is with Perl available in cygwin, osc or just my machine setup. Haven't tried again.

i thinked more to native command line tool, perl exist for windows (should be perl32), but i hop to have that tool soon.

in last periods, i must work with windows lots of time, and i really would like to be able to use osc also there

osc is written in python, so there is no need for perl.

I tried to create one monolithic binary (osc.exe) using cxPython or python-freeze (can't remember exactly), but failed, because of the dependency hell.

are you able to rember what kind of depencies gave you troubles?

icons/user_comment.png P. R. wrote: (9 years ago)

I think it was rpm (import rpm)

Fortunately the code has changed, so the rpm module is not mandatory and I managed to create an OSC package for Windows. I will post the how-to and the package later today after some testing ...

greate! IMHO in a windows version the "osc build" feature should be removed (only a cygwin version may support it) because you now, is not possible to build rpms there :)

Done! osc build is indeed not working, same for the osc vc.
