Your environment variables should have been set by the installer as follows :-

Code: Select all

DEVKITPRO=/opt/devkitpro
DEVKITARM=/opt/devkitpro/devkitARM
DEVKITPPC=/opt/devkitpro/devkitPPC
You should not have DEVKITA64 in your environment at all.

The project you're trying to build is from two years ago and unfortunately, in a world where we're reverse engineering a console and building libraries as we go, code that old is unlikely to build.

We distribute example code which you should find installed in /opt/devkitpro/examples/switch (this is C:\devkitPro\examples\switch from windows file explorer). When you use these examples please copy them elsewhere and don't modify them in place. The installer may overwrite or even remove examples when you update.
