I tried putting the pd-extended install in a root directory with no spaces
and I still get the errors listed in the previous email.
The build instructions say that mingw on windows is a tested configuration.
I'm using the only pthreads implementation for mingw I can find which is at:
I've got the header in path-to-pd/include and the dll/lib stuff in path-to-pd/bin.
I've even tried renaming to pthread.dll but it doesn't make a difference.
Which pthreads implementation did you use to test mingw? Do you have a copy
of the libs/headers you can send me?
