error with lminizip while compiling


I am compiling collada-dom 2-2 using minGW… but it is coming out of compailation after some time with the below error.

I downloaded the latest source code. I changed the operating systen ps3 to windows.
Do I need to change any configuration file other than in make file?

Please see the below error…

Compiling src/1.4/dom/domVertices.cpp to build/mingw-1.4/obj/domVertices.o

Please direct me to right path

I am getting this too.

In the instructions for windows it says to use the linux instruction which states

Neither Redhat nor Debian provide minizip packages. So I included it’s source in external-libs/minizip/src. It can be built with: make project=minizip. You can specify other parameters such as colladaVersion or conf as well.

I dont understand what I have to do at this point to remedy the problem. Using msys what do I do?


If your system doesn’t have minizip then first make the minizip provided in the external directory so that you can link with that in the end.
