Make (to create build) error

Post by renewreborn » Sat Jun 16, 2018 4:54 pm

Hello,

I'm not sure whether this question is related here. Anyway, I'm trying to compile and build something for a GBA hack. When I opened up CMD and typed in Make. The follow appeared and this error message appeared.

Can anyone help me?

Looks like you might be missing grit.

How did you install everything? Is whatever you're building available on github or something?

Replace https://github.com/Touched/MegaEvolutio ... file#L1-L6 with this

Code: Select all

include $(DEVKITPRO)/devkitARM/base_tools
export LD	:=	$(PREFIX)ld

I've replaced it with exactly that, but now this appears

What's the output of these commands?

Code: Select all

which make
make --version
echo %PATH%

Sorry, what do you mean?

If it means anything, I've installed the latest Devprokit in the root of the C: Drive (C:\devprokit)

I downloaded the GitHub and placed it into the folder "mega" in the root of my desktop. I then created a folder within that folder labelled "build".

I downloaded GnuWin Make 3.81 and installed it into my computer. I've copied the content inside the "Make 3.81's BIN" folder into the "Mega" folder.

I opened the "CMD" in the folder and then typed in "make" and that error appeared :/

I have no idea what this means. Did you use the installer as specified here https://devkitpro.org/wiki/Getting_Started

It's really best not to place these things on your desktop. Spaces in the paths can cause issues.

This was a terrible idea. You should uninstall GnuWin Make 3.81 at the very least and probably delete the Mega folder then start again fresh.

the devkitPro installer sets up msys2 which contains all the unix tools you need. Please don't use other unix tools simultaneously, they will cause problems.

Okay. How do I build it using Msys2? Like what are the commands?
