libnds compiling problem

Post by bench-kun » Mon Jul 27, 2020 3:02 pm

whenever i try to compile libnds, this error shows up

notice i used powershell for this, but the error persists using msys2 too.
i downloaded the rule files and placed them in the specified missing directory (that i also made), but still nothing. correct me if i'm wrong, but i think the problem is with apparently a missing key on the installer

  • You probably don't need to compile libnds. The latest version is available via pacman.
  • You definitely shouldn't be compiling libnds there. We recommend not modifying the devkitPro folder at all.
  • The key thing is an msys2 issue with insttructions to resolve at https://github.com/msys2/msys2.github.i ... -packagers . This isn't related to your other issue at all.
  • We've seen many odd issues with Powershell and don't recommend using it in combination with the tools.
What windows version is this and is it a new install?

I'm using windows 10, but that doesn't matter anymore, i think that i downloaded from the sourceforge link which was probably outdated. Apologies for making this thread before i made extra extra sure.

There have been no files hosted on Sourceforge in a couple of years, there's only a link to say we moved.

Your actual issue was that the windows installer wasn't installing anything other than msys and it's all fixed now?

It was more of an outdated version problem, i've had both the sourceforge and github pages open so i got confused there. But yeah that pretty much was it.

I'm still not really sure what you're saying here.

There was an issue with msys recently that caused the installer to only install msys & not the rest of the tools. I can only assume that was what your issue was. The last windows installer was built and released in 2018. Previous installers automatically update to that one before installing.
