Tried to install on Ubuntu and got a 404 error

Post by Silicon42 » Tue Aug 07, 2018 1:26 am

I just tried to install devkitARM on Kubuntu via the buildscripts and was rewarded with this unhelpful error:

Code: Select all

[email protected]:~/Documents/devkitpro/buildscripts$ ./build-devkit.sh
Please note, these scripts are provided as a courtesy, toolchains built with them
are for personal use only and may not be distributed by entities other than devkitPro.
See http://devkitpro.org/wiki/Trademarks

Patches and improvements are of course welcome, please submit a PR
https://github.com/devkitPro/buildscripts/pulls

Looking for configuration file... Found.

Please select the toolchain you require

1: devkitARM (gba gp32 ds)
2: devkitPPC (gamecube wii)
3: devkitA64 (switch)
1

Please enter the directory where you would like 'devkitARM' to be installed:
for mingw/msys you must use <drive>:/<install path> or you will have include path problems
this is the top level directory for devkitpro, i.e. e:/devkitPro
/home/cs/Documents/devkitpro

use /usr/bin/make as make

Ready to install devkitARM in /home/cs/Documents/devkitpro/devkitARM

press return to continue

Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

Is there any particular reason why you can't use the prebuilt binaries through devkitPro-pacman?

Ubuntu does not have pacman and furthermore, it is highly frowned upon to have multiple package managers installed on one system because they can't keep track of each others changes potentially leading to catastrophic file system corruption. This means that most package managers don't have easy ways to be installed on systems that they are not prepackaged with because said systems are typically prepackaged with their own package managers.

That being said, if you know how to install pacman on Ubuntu, that'd probably work well enough for me since I'd only use it to install the devkit.

You seem to be unaware that we do ship in fact a build of pacman specifically targeting Debian based distros such as Ubuntu, meant to coexist with apt. We named it dkp-pacman, and it installs as a .deb you can easily run dpkg on. Please refer to this: https://github.com/devkitPro/pacman/releases/latest

devkitPro toolchains and support libraries are deliberately self contained within /opt/devkitpro and won't interfere with the system tools and libraries.

We're currently supplying just over 100 packages via pacman now so, as I'm sure you'll appreciate, making packages for all the distros we can run on is a lot of effort that seems wasteful when we can standardise on one. Most of these are devkitPro toolchain specific and don't really make any sense to repackage in several formats for no particularly good reason.
