Hi,

I am trying to install Ming for Python 2.6
I have downloaded the windows setup from

http://sourceforge.net/projects/ming/files/Releases/Ming%200.4.3/ming-0.4.3.zip/download

but I am running into problems since if I try
to run the setup.py inside the directory py_ext like

setup2.py build --compiler=mingw32

I get the following error message:

running build
running build_py
running build_ext
building 'mingc' extension
writing build\temp.win32-2.6\Release\mingc.def
C:\MinGW\bin\gcc.exe -mno-cygwin -shared -s build\temp.win32-2.6\Release\ming_wrap.o build\temp.win32-2.6\Release\mingc.def -L../src -LC:\Python26\libs -LC:\Python26\PCbuild -lming -lpython26 -lmsvcr90 -o build\lib.win32-2.6\mingc.pyd
C:\MinGW\bin\..\lib\gcc\mingw32\3.4.5\..\..\..\..\mingw32\bin\ld.exe: cannot find -lming
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

obviously there is a library missing like libming ?
Can anybody help or give a download link for this library
or for the missing _mingc.pyd which is needed for the ming
module to run?
I have found an installation guide for Python 2.4 but it does not
work either on my computer:

Any help or download links very much appreciated.

Not something I know about, but I did come across this which might be useful. Note that We don't provide an official windows version at this stage

Thanks for the link, but all the given links are broken
and have not been updated for a long time as it looks like.

If I go to Installing language bindings it says:

Python
(All language bindings below here are still to be documented on the wiki.)
