MingwInstallMain

Hi,

I’ve got a question for the MinGW users / wiki editors.

I notice that in http://gnuradio.org/trac/wiki/MingwInstallMain
it says to use the --with-md-cpu=generic configure option.

Why are you specifying this option?

If you do, you’ll lose all the SIMD speedups.

I’ve got a question for the MinGW users / wiki editors.

This comes from the recommendations in an older web page (reference not
handy). I haven’t found it necessary but haven’t known what its impact
is.

The MinGW install page is still a work in progress. Comments and
suggestions are greatly appreciated; feel free to send them directly to
Patrick M. [email protected] and myself (Don W.
[email protected]) if you prefer.

Eric,

I’m working with Don W. to edit that wiki page. One of my starting
points
was Martin’s notes at
http://www.olifantasia.com/projects/gnuradio/mdvh/mingw/binary/readme.mingw.
In that readme file, he says:

use --with-md-cpu=generic:
the optimized fir code doesn’t compile on my mingw/gcc setup so use
the
generic code. Maybe you are lucky or know how to fix this, please let
me
know.

This option is also specified in the README-win32-mingw-short.txt file
at
http://gnuradio.org/trac/browser/gnuradio/trunk, and at the old wiki
page at
http://www.comsec.com/wiki?Cygwin.

I simply followed this advice; I didn’t try to enable optimization.
Would
you like me to specify a different option for ./configure, and rebuild
gnuradio?
