Finally, I booted GC-Linux

The platinum GameCube and Pokémon Colosseum, that I had since I was a kid, and the memory card, SD gecko and microSD card that I bought for this adventure

An obsession for half of my life

When I was a very little kid, my neighbor had a PlayStation One, and I wanted one as as well. I knew almost nothing about video games, I just thought they were cool. Then the PlayStation 2 came out, and I started wanting it.

So, after many years of requests, when I was like 8 or 9, on the Saturday before Christmas, my Dad took me and my syster to a shop close to our home… and we bought a GameCube. He liked a Logitech steering wheel that was for the GC, and, influenced by a shop assistant, we bought the bundle of a platinum GameCube with Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. … [Leggi il resto]

Installare devkitPPC su Linux

Non riuscivo a installare il devkitPPC che serve a fare gli homebrew ma non so perché così penso che questa mini guida possa tornare utile.

1. Posizionatevi dove volete veramente installare il devkit
2. Digitare in ordine:
    wget -q -O- http://sourceforge.net/projects/devkitpro/files/devkitPPC/devkitPPC_r21-i686-linux.tar.bz2/download | tar -xjvf -
    mkdir libogc
    wget -q -O- http://sourceforge.net/projects/devkitpro/files/libogc/libogc-1.8.3.tar.bz2/download | tar -C libogc/ -xjvf -
    wget -q -O- http://sourceforge.net/projects/devkitpro/files/libfat/libfat-ogc-1.0.7.tar.bz2/download | tar -xjvf - -C libogc/
    mkdir -p examples/wii examples/gamecube
    wget -q -O- http://sourceforge.net/projects/devkitpro/files/examples/wii/wii-examples-20091124.tar.bz2/download | tar -C examples/wii -xjvf -
    wget -q -O- http://sourceforge.net/projects/devkitpro/files/examples/gamecube/gamecube-examples-20091212.tar.bz2/download | tar -C examples/gamecube -xjvf -
3. Ora scrivete (se usate questo toolkit spesso però aggiungetelo al file .bashrc!):
    export DEVKITPRO=/opt/devkitpro # Dove avete installato insomma...
    export DEVKITPPC=$DEVKITPRO/devkitPPC

Non si sa perché ma a me non andava.

Forse mi dimenticavo di mettere libogc, comunque ora funziona…
