Hi guys,

I'm trying to cross-compile a project using CMake and gdc (or 
better: the gdmd port). My CMakeLists-file is the following:

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8.1)

set(CMAKE_MODULE_PATH ${CMAKE_MODULE_PATH} 
"${CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR}/cmake-d")
SET(CMAKE_SYSTEM_NAME Linux)

project(myapp D)
set(CMAKE_D_FLAGS "${CMAKE_D_FLAGS} ${GLOBAL_DMD_DEFS}")

set(SOURCES
     main.d
     generic.d
     )

include_directories(.)

add_executable(myapp ${SOURCES})

I'm working on Windows and I want compile the project for the 
target linux system. So, I downloaded the gdc (x86_64-linux-gnu), 
extracted it and set the PATH variable. Unfortunately, when I 
configure my project using CMake, I'm getting the following 
message:

CMake Error at 
C:/Users/User/Desktop/Project/cmake-d/CMakeDetermineDCompiler.cmake:32
(MESSAGE):
   Could not find compiler set in environment variable C:

   CMAKE_D_COMPILER-NOTFOUND.
Call Stack (most recent call first):
   CMakeLists.txt:6 (project)


CMake Error: CMAKE_D_COMPILER not set, after EnableLanguage

I think CMake cannot find the compiler because the executables of 
gdc are named like "x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu-gdc". So, I've added 
the following to my CMakeLists-file:

set(CMAKE_D_COMPILER x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu-gdmd)

But this also fails with the following error:

The D compiler identification is GNU

C:/Users/User/Compiler/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/bin/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu-gdmd.exe

To force a specific D compiler set the DC environment variable
     ie - export DC="/usr/bin/dmd"

   It fails with the following output:

Does anyone know what can cause the problem here? I've also set 
the DC environment variable but I'm still getting the errors :(

 I'm trying to cross-compile a project using CMake and gdc (or

For cross-compiling, CMake uses a so called "toolchain" file [1] where you define the system paths similar to the target system. I confess that never cross-compiled any code with cmake-d, but in principle it should work. Dragos [1] https://cmake.org/cmake/help/v3.7/manual/cmake-toolchains.7.html#cross-compiling-for-linux

Alright. Thank you Dragos. I thought it's possible without using a toolchain file but I'll give it a try :)

I tried using a toolchain file but unfortunately, I'm still getting the same error. Using the dmd compiler works fine but not the GDC compiler for cross compiling :(. Any other idea(s) what can cause the error?
