[Beginner] error: gba.specs: No such file or directory

Post by LiihtName123 » Thu Mar 28, 2019 7:34 pm

So I'm following this tutorial https://www.reinterpretcast.com/writing ... vance-game. And I'm trying to compile the first example but this

Code: Select all

sudo arm-none-eabi-gcc main.o -mthumb-interwork -mthumb -specs=gba.specs -o main.elf
causes the error

Code: Select all

arm-none-eabi-gcc: error: gba.specs: No such file or directory
Unfortunately I don't really know what it means or where to get "gba.specs" or where to put. BTW I'm running Ubuntu 18.10. I've done what was asked of the person in this thread viewtopic.php?f=37&t=8740 who seemed to be having similar problems.

I hope I've made it easy for you to help me. It would be great if you could point me in the write direction!

You shouldn't be using sudo for this and we recommend using the gba template & using make rather than running these commands manually.

I suspect that you don't have /opt/devkitpro/devkitARM/bin in the PATH when you're running these commands and you're using the wrong toolchain - ubuntu has another arm-none-eabi toolchain tuned for different processors.
