Re: Linux Installer

Like I said, it has been a while since I worked on it. I've got exams for the next 3 weeks, but I'll play around again after that.

Re: Linux Installer

Yeah, some stuff has changed since I last updated this. I'll try to get it going again.

Re: Linux Installer

I generally do "mkdir /usr/local/devkitPro && chown {user}:{user} /usr/local/devkitPro" as root before running the installer. Mostly because I sometimes have to move things around when working on the installer and logged in as my non-root account.

Re: Linux Installer

Another release! Now uses the same ini file as the Windows installer, stored on the devkitPro website, so updates should be available through the installer as soon as the Windows updater can see them. Also added some more code to make it easier to support different *NIX systems, and different proces...

Re: RoadMap Discussion

I do agree that for a beginner, using functions is certainly much easier to understand since it's what their book teaches. The concept of using a 'variable' (which is how they will see it) as a function will be a mystery, and the same for bitwise operators. However, should an absolute beginner be le...

Re: RoadMap Discussion

I'm for a bit more if it won't (and I know it won't) affect me, though I do wonder if there is a point where you have to be "cruel to be kind" and have to just force people to learn how to do something rather than just making it ever easier.

Re: Linux Installer

Updated again, now on 0.3. This version will now only extract updated packages, not everything each and every time. Also, File_linux is gone from the ini file, it just uses File now.

Re: Linux Installer

I've updated the link in the first post. The original 0.2 package segfaulted because devkitPro-installer/Config.in needs a blank line at the end, which was missing :D.

Re: Linux Installer

We were wondering in IRC the other day (after you'd left) whether it would be feasible to run the scripts pretty much as they are (or with a few changes to get the ncurses code running if needed) on OS X. That'd mean that if you were able to package your binaries as tarballs rather than disk images ...

Linux Installer

I've put together an ncurses installer for Linux, based on buildroot (it looks the same as menuconfig when building the kernel). It will automatically download, extract and optionally edit ~/.bashrc to add the needed environment variables for compiling stuff with the devkitARM and devkitPPC toolchai...
