[beginner] - Compile error if i move the example folder

Post by rekotc » Wed Jul 01, 2015 10:53 am

hi!

i've just started to learn the basics of GBA programming, and i have a simple problem i cannot solve. I was able to run the basic template included in devkitpro/examples/gba/template, i created the *.gba file and successfully run it on the emulator. Then i tried to copy the template folder to another directory on my pc, where i keep all the projects i'm working on. But when i try to compile the same project from the terminal using "make", i get the following error:
make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'c:/devkitPro/examples/gba/template/source/template.c', needed by 'template.o'. Stop.
make: *** [build] Error 2
Now, i noticed that 'make' is still searching in the old directory (c:/devkitPro/examples/gba/template/source/template.c), but i have absolutely no idea how to reconfigure the makefile in order to change the path where the project resides. How can it be done?

thank you in advance

Did you try cleaning the project? make clean

I'm having the exact same problem as the OP and tried doing a "make clean" then "make". I replicated it for the screen shot. Any other ideas?

that example requires imagemagick installation

You're using old 3DS examples as well. The latest version of that checks for imagemagick and fails gracefully
