Re: Cross-Compiling for Amiga OS4 PPC from Cygwin / Bash on Ubuntu on Windows 10+

Happy to help, hopefully it actually _does_ help.

Yes, Ubuntu-on-Win/UWin/Windows Subsystem for Linux/Linux Subsystem/LXSS/Bash-on-Ubuntu-for-Windows, are all names for the same thing. Microsoft clearly hasn't settled on the branding of this!

Please, if you have some spare time, feel free to get the UWin stuff working. It makes for MUCH easier IDE integration from a Windows IDE, like Visual Studio (or really any IDE) -- but really, aside from IDE integration there's almost nothing that Cygwin can't do for this (and many, many) other purposes.

I've actually uninstalled UWin on a couple of machines in favour of Cygwin. Much more stable.

It might be worth noting that I do _NOT_ have Creator's Edition of Windows 10 running; and that probably makes a difference with the UWin binaries.

I'm currently running Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit, Version 1607, OS Build 14393.1715. Which means I'm definitely _not_ using the latest-available UWin tools/binaries/packages.

The version of UWin I'm running is: Linux version 3.4.0-Microsoft (Microsoft@Microsoft.com) (gcc version 4.7 (GCC))

I'm pretty sure it's something to do with the Linux subsystem version I'm running; despite using the latest apt packages for my setup. As I noted in my original post -- all the build checks pass and a _ton_ of compiling/linking works until near the very end. With a bizarre error about the resulting cross-compiler being unable to compile an executable.

I can happily post my error details later on if desired. I'd be more interested in seeing how far you get with my instructions on a later version of UWin.
