Alright... I stand corrected. I do recall that a lot of things on sf were
sitting at 2013 when I installed recently, but it seems you guys caught the
issues I ran into at the time. Installs fine on 7, and XP. 2000 has an issue
with some of the downloads, but again I think that problem is related to Window
2000 as even firefox can't go to https sites. So I copied my install from XP to
2000 and it works like a charm. It complains that my screenshot is too large, I
tried jpg and png... eh... it just shows that it's windows 2000 and I ran gcc
--version so not seeing it is no loss. I guess I'll look at the documentation
we talked about.

Ticket details:

I have patched together my copy of MinGW based on a very old install and a lot
of manual downloading (about 3 weeks ago), I know there were a lot of broken
links. My copy works great, I've compiled a ton of libraries into mine. I've
also pulled MSYS2, and setup automounts to MinGW, TDM-MinGW, and MinGW-64. I've
been in IT for over 20 years and I think this project is amazing or at least
can be once again. MinGW-64, and MSYS2 are cool as well, but pacman, although
it works nice if you KNOW the name of the package you want is a pain. i am/was/
have been a Windows programmer for many years, also a Unix admin for several
years, and Windows admin as well. So I have skills across the board, but
recently I've been retraining myself to be all about MinGW as it offers me an
equal development environment between my linux and windows systems. I've been
slowly moving over to Linux as I can't stand Microsoft and I'm so tired of
giving up my whole machine for what Microsoft tools can do when I can do them
for a fraction of the overhead under MinGW. Sorry about the book, but I'm not
sure if/and what kind of help you all need on this so I thought I'd toss in a
little summary. I'm interested in helping on the project. Let me know. my email
address is ayper****@gmail*****

thanks, Chris
