One problem for gcc compile object-c on windows 7


Hi all,

I am a newbie for object-c, I am study object-c on windows 7, as I found
http://www.gnustep.org/experience/Windows.html is very useful for me, so I setup the environment as
it said: install MinGW and GNUstep Core, then I can use gcc to compile the first object-c program which do
not include any foundation header files, like <Foundation/NSObject.h>.

But the problem is that I can not write any code actually, as gcc can not find all of foundation header files.
If my code include <Foundation/NSObject.h>, gcc will pop out error like: 
  fatal error, Foundation/Foundation.h: No such file or directory
  compilation terminated.

Does any body can help me for this problem? Thank you very much.

BTW, I have installed Cygwin before install MinGW and GNUstep Core, does it conflict with MinGW?

Waiting for your reply.
Thanks.

GNUstep Packages for openSUSE

						     13th January 2014

                         GNUstep 2.6.6 for openSUSE 12.3

Introduction

    This repository gives openSUSE 12.3 users a quick and easy way of
    setting up a GNUstep installation, without the need to compile from
    source.

    It also provides users of the latest One Step to GNUstep Virtual
    Machine (version 0.9.6) with a means of updating their installed
    GNUstep software.

    It contains binary packages for both 32-bit (i586) and 64-bit (x86_64)
    hardware. There are three variants — one for each of these
    architectures:
      * GCC/libobjc1
      * GCC/libobjc2 and
      * Clang/libobjc2

    The packages are configured to follow the UNIX/Linux FHS file-system
    layout, so the software is installed in the places where you would
    expect to find it in an openSUSE system.

Where to Get It

    The packages and documentation are in an openSUSE-style repository at:

    http://www.rstonehouse.co.uk/extras/GNUstep-2.6.6/openSUSE-12.3

Christmas GNUstep core release (gui)

This is version 0.24.0 of the GNUstep GUI library (`gnustep-gui').

1.1 What is the GNUstep GUI Library?
====================================

It is a library of graphical user interface classes written completely
in the Objective-C language; the classes are based upon Apple's Cocoa
framework (which came from the OpenStep specification as release by
NeXT Software, Inc).  The library has been enhanced in a number of ways
to take advantage of the GNU system.  These classes include graphical
objects such as buttons, text fields, popup lists, browser lists, and
windows; there are also many associated classes for handling events,
colors, fonts, pasteboards and images.

   The GNUstep GUI Library is designed in two parts.  The first part is
the front-end component which is independent of platform and display
system.  This front-end is combined with a back-end component which
handles all of the display system dependent such as specific calls to
X/Windows.  This design allows the GNUstep applications to have the
"look and feel" of the underlying display system without any changes to
the application, and the library can be easily ported to other display
systems.

   The GNUstep GUI Library requires the GNU Objective-C compiler, the
GNUstep Base Library, the TIFF Graphics library, and a back-end
component like the GNUstep 'Back' Backend.

1.2 Noteworthy changes in version `0.24.0'
==========================================

Christmas GNUstep core release (back)

This is version 0.24.0 of the GNUstep GUI Backend (`gnustep-back').

1.1 What is the GNUstep GUI Backend?
====================================

It is a back-end component for the GNUstep GUI Library.  The
implementation of the GNUstep GUI Library is designed in two parts.  The
first part is the front-end component which is independent of platform
and display system.  This front-end is combined with a back-end
component which handles all of the display system dependent such as
specific calls to the X Window System.  This design allows the GNUstep
applications to have the "look and feel" of the underlying display
system without any changes to the application, and the library can be
easily ported to other display systems.

   The GNUstep GUI Backend is for platforms using the X-Window System or
Window's Systems. It works via a DPS emulation engine to emulate the
DPS functions required by the front-end system.

1.2 Noteworthy changes in version `0.24.0'
==========================================

Added experimental Opal backend.

   Allow for ARGB visual for OpenGL.

1.3 Where can you get it?  How can you compile it?
==================================================

The gstep-back-0.24.0.tar.gz distribution file has been placed at
