Building nightly with Msys2

Hi,
(In case automatically closed duplicate of my post can be reopened, please inform me… (Duplicate - closed post here))

I am trying to build fresh KiCad nightly with Msys2 (Win 10 x64). Steps I have taken:

  1. Launch “msys2_mingw64”;

  2. Use these commands:

    pacman -Suy
    pacman -Su

    pacman -S base-devel
    git
    mingw-w64-x86_64-cmake
    mingw-w64-x86_64-doxygen
    mingw-w64-x86_64-gcc
    mingw-w64-x86_64-python2
    mingw-w64-x86_64-pkg-config
    mingw-w64-x86_64-swig
    mingw-w64-x86_64-boost
    mingw-w64-x86_64-cairo
    mingw-w64-x86_64-glew
    mingw-w64-x86_64-curl
    mingw-w64-x86_64-wxPython
    mingw-w64-x86_64-wxWidgets
    mingw-w64-x86_64-toolchain
    mingw-w64-x86_64-glm
    mingw-w64-x86_64-oce
    mingw-w64-x86_64-ngspice
    mingw-w64-x86_64-gtk3

    git clone https://gitlab.com/kicad/code/kicad.git

    cd kicad
    mkdir -p build/debug
    cd build/debug

    cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug
    -G “MSYS Makefiles”
    -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/mingw64
    -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/mingw64
    -DDEFAULT_INSTALL_PATH=/mingw64
    …/…/

    make -j 4

  3. And this is there ld fails with:

collect2.exe: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [pcbnew/CMakeFiles/pcbnew_kiface.dir/build.make:658: pcbnew/_pcbnew.kiface] Error 1
make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:3327: pcbnew/CMakeFiles/pcbnew_kiface.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [Makefile:161: all] Error 2

The same (similar output) happens if switching OFF most of the flags inside \kicad\CMakeLists.txt, LD returns the same an errors.
I have attached console output inside txt file.
Output log 2020-09-02.txt (996.2 KB)

What am I doing wrong?

Linker is failing because it fails to lookup some symbols.
Here’s a few things to try

  1. Do a release build instead of debug
  2. Disable python (KICAD_SCRIPTING and KICAD_SCRIPTING_WXPYTHON cmake flags)

If you need python and debug build, you may get more help on dev mailing list.

Wow! Thank you @qu1ck, release version with almost all cmake flags set to OFF have been built successfully!
