    everytime I try to download devkitpro, it stops at devkitARM and says either my internet was not permitted or has timed out...I'm gonna grab them manually, but what is the minimum that is needed? thanks in advance!

    you don't need the ARM stuff for like 98% of projects. if you really want to compile ARM stuff, you can manually download it and extract it to your devkit folder and then just set up the environmental variable.

    You'd only need DKARM for GBA/DS stuff, or I suppose things involving Starlet(which would involve MINI, no?).

    Vista Ultimate 32bit...env variables..no clue, this is the first time i'm attempting to mess with devkit

    all I did was download the devkitppc from soureforge, along with the programmers notepad, and extracted them both to c:\DevkitPro

    type in a command prompt
    Code:
    echo %DEVKITPRO%
    it should tell you the path to the devkit folder. but i suspect that yours will just give you a blank because it was never set. normally this is set by the installer. and you need to have msys set up, and the DEVKITPPC variable. if you still get errors, run that shit as administrator because vista likes to pull its nanny shit.

    running the installer as admin right now, fingers crossed..

    .yea the echo just gave me a blank

    auto installer keeps failing on DevkitPPC, just 3kb short of being finished..it grabbed the msys though

    got everything manually again and am reading this guide http://www.devkitpro.org/setup.shtml

    ok, upon trying to MAKE, now I get "Please set DEVKITPPC in your environment. export DEVKITPPC=devkitPPC". Stop.

    LAST EDIT: got it working...close this thread!
