Hi Andeas, (List)
Sorry for the delay, I've been offline upgrading my PC to a new motherboard and
processor. Very fast!
Two issues: gdal and the state of wingrass:
1) I compiled the gdal library for someone just last year. So, I can help in
2) if we move to a total windows port, I will continue to support the X11 version;
that will take some cvs configuration and this group has been very good
in this area in the past.
I agree with Glynn about using the win32api if you decide to go native.
Again, though, let's keep the configure and the cvs in step with that
Let me know...

i think it depends on the version of winGRASS. The version i compiled
with the X driver did not contain a working r.in.gdal, as i never could
compile the gdal library on windows. Maybe the version with the native
windows driver worked with gdal lib, but i never tested.
The cygwin environment has undergone many changes since i wrote the
installation instruction (e. g. the new setup system, there is a sunrpc
package now!), and i had a nearly-working auto-installable grass package
last year. But i decided to abandon further development, as i was not
able to support all those external dependencies (XFree, sunrpc, gdal,
nviz, tcl/tk etc.). I think that we should decide which route to go for
the windows port (only X or only native windows driver), as i (we?)
don't have the capacities to maintain two versions (and documentation)
for the windows port. It costs a lot of effort to create really
fool-proof documentation and setup system and to cope with all the
If there is interest and others are willing to join, i will revive the
