Hello all,


My PC details:

Windows XP sp 3.

Mingw (latest, added path)


Here are the steps I took:


1) After checking out the latest Boost from CVS I went and build bjam using

> cd C:\Dev\Checkout\boost\tools\jam\src

> build mingw


2) After build I copied the bjam.exe to boot++ root dir



got this error while trying to run it:

C:\Dev\Checkout\boost>bjam "-sTOOLS=mingw" -s"MINGW_ROOT_DIRECTORY=C:\MinGW"
toolset=mingw install

mingw.jam: No such file or directory

C:/Dev/Checkout/boost/tools/build/v2/build\toolset.jam:27: in toolset.using

rule mingw.init unknown in module toolset.

C:/Dev/Checkout/boost/tools/build/v2\build-system.jam:195: in load

C:\Dev\Checkout\boost\tools\build\v2/kernel/bootstrap.jam:132: in

C:\Dev\Checkout\boost\boost-build.jam:9: in module scope



Here is the gcc output from compiling :


C:\Dev\Checkout\boost\tools\jam\src>build.bat mingw

Am I missing something?
