Re: Build on msys2 fails : libngspice-x.dll not found in any executable path


Unfortunately, while we seem to get past the libngspice-0.dll problem with the fix, the old workaround  for the python problem no longer works.

cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug \
-DKICAD_SCRIPTING=OFF\ <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< I believe this used to get around the pyhton mismatch.
-G "Eclipse CDT4 - Unix Makefiles" \
-DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=C:/msys64/mingw64 \
-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=C:/msys64/mingw64 \
-DDEFAULT_INSTALL_PATH=C:/msys64/mingw64 \

Throws the library mismatch error.

There is definitely something wrong but I'm not sure where the issue is.
  I downgraded both cmake a couple of versions but cmake started
complaining about missing libraries.  I even modified Findngspice.cmake
with the absolute path to libngspice-0.dll and it still didn't work so
something is definitely broken.  I'm may try a full clean reinstall of
msys2 when I have a *lot* of free time so I don't know when that will
happen.  For all of you windows devs using msys2, you might want to hold
off updating until this issue is resolved.

I also tried the last msys version.
I found 2 issues:
this issue: libngspice-0.dll is not found even if it is in path.
This is an issue but one can invoke cmake with option -DNGSPICE_DLL=<libngspice-0.dll full path>
The other issue is the fact the last msys version comes with wxWidgets 3.05 compiled with gcc10
but wxPython was not rebuild and there is an ABI issue.

I just committed a fix for the libngspice-x.dll issue.
I am not entirely convinced this is a msys issue.
However, the wxPython problem is a msys issue.
