What I’m trying to do is successfully compile native code using Cygwin. The error message i get when i run type my directory to the ndk-build in the terminal is
ERROR: Cannot find ‘make’ program. Please install Cygwin make package or define the GNUMAKE variable to point to it.
This is what im typing into the Cygwin terminal:
My Build Path is: C:\cygwin\bin;C:\Users\Kwesi\Desktop\android-ndk-r8\ndk-build;
I’ve installed the make using this youtube video tutorial, so I am pretty sure it is installed correctly. http://www.youtube.com/watch?vjqJGxJJq87w&listFL2bdE2OcpySONpqzf5OsWNQ&index1&featureplpp_video
You probably just need to install the
setup.exe command that you used to install Cygwin in the first place, and select “make”.
First, to confirm that this is the problem, run
make from the terminal.
You’ll likely have to install some other packages as well.
