If you want to get help on this sort of problem, you need to capture the relevant console output. "make fails" could mean a million different things, and virtually no-one can tell which of those things you are suffering from, nor even how to start debugging your problem.Jeziah wrote:Every time i try to "make" any one of the examples, the make fails (error 2). I've uninstalled then re-installed devkitpro twice now, and restarted my computer many times, but it still does not work :c. I'm running XP.
Not much point in asking the question in a forum then, surely? Just send a PM to WinterMute and be done with it.Jeziah wrote:The admin has already discussed this exact error (the solution didnt work for me). I was hoping he could help me, as he would have experience and would not need to work through the complete copy/paste of my problem.
And no-one else benefits from Google searching and finding your description of the problem, or any possible answers.
Do i REALLY need to quote the whole thing? i mean, everything i've seen of make error 2 has been in the EXACT same context. "Make Error 2" should be enough for everyone. More efficient. BTW, who is WinterMute? the Admin?
Here is what the man page for make says:Jeziah wrote:Do i REALLY need to quote the whole thing? i mean, everything i've seen of make error 2 has been in the EXACT same context. "Make Error 2" should be enough for everyone. More efficient.
In laymans terms, what its saying is "make will return error 2 if any sub-process or command it tries to execute has a problem." That could be a C compile, C++, the link, bad options to ndstool, copying non-existant files, anything. So, as far as make is concerned, all it knows is "something has failed". Its up to you to read the rest of the console log to determine exactly what that something was.
Code: Select all
EXIT STATUS GNU make exits with a status of zero if all makefiles were successfully parsed and no targets that were built failed. A status of one will be returned if the -q flag was used and make determines that a target needs to be rebuilt. A status of two will be returned if any errors were encountered.
Yes. Look at any of his posts and you'll see it says "Site Admin" under his name. Since you referred to his posts saying "the admin has already discussed ..." I assumed you knew that. Or if there's some other admin (which there may well be), I apologise, I only know the one.BTW, who is WinterMute? the Admin?
