Downloading devkitPro toolchains

Post by Malcohol » Wed Apr 11, 2012 1:53 pm

Hi there.

I tried to download this project last night, to use on a GNU/Linux
machine. It seems the instructions are out of date. Can someone please
update them?

Here is the getting started page:

The link to the installers for non-Microsoft platforms is dead: ... lupdaters/

In fact, it seems that the SVN repository is empty. So I had a look to
see where the other installer takes you. That's here:

Cool, but I can't find the perlupdaters in that respository. It does
offer a "Looking for the latest version?" link, but that is only for
the examples bzip file, not the whole devkit. (Today, I see that it's
offering a link to devkitProUpdater-1.5.0.exe instead. Not sure why
and not what I need.)

I won't be working on the toolchain, so I don't really want to check
it out with git (especially as the Getting Started page explicitly
warns that the check-out can be difficult to build).

Can someone tell me how to proceed without manually downloading the
files one by one?

Thanks for your help,


(BTW, apologies if I double posted this. I thought I'd posted it already, but it never appeared.)

Sorry about that, I've been moving everything over to git and hadn't yet got around to adding the perl scripts. I've updated the wiki page and uploaded the scripts to ... Installer/ now.
