Best way to go about updating from the Dev ISO(r4)?

Post by speewave » Sun Aug 26, 2012 1:54 pm

It's been quite some time since the release of the DDE, and theres been some major changes in KOS (including the move from SVN -> git)
So i was wondering whats the best way to update this, is it simple enough to clone the repo, move it in place and recompile? also would the GCC\binutils\etc., all need updating too to work with the latest update to KOS?

thanks in advance for your response... i figured i'd try to do some programming on DC now that i got an SD Reader coming! (Btw, could you run straight binaries *scrambled or unscrambled* from SD? or must they be in an ISO format?)

You might be able to get away with just updating newlib (you will need to update at least newlib versus what I recall being in the dev iso), however you really should update GCC and binutils as well.
