Cross Compiling CEF for a different OS

Postby rdowdall » Thu Sep 12, 2013 10:12 am


I am trying to compile CEF for a new OS. I have managed to setup a gyp generator for the toolchain that I am using, and it seems to be compiling properly. However I am running in to some trouble figuring out what I need to turn on and off with respect to the third party libraries that are provided. For example the skia build seems to need a freetype library, and there is one in the third-party library, but it seems to be trying to pull in one from the Linux system that I am compiling on. Also if I look at the include lines that it seems that it is trying to pull in additional includes from glib, and libdrm.

I was under the impression that the chromium source was a self contained entity and that it built what it needed, and that it didn't really need anything else from a building stand point. Is there a way that I can configure my build to build what it needs as it goes through?
