Yeah, it'll install GCC 3.4.2.

Well, after uninstalling and reinstalling it two more times without success, I decided to install Cygwin from the DC Dev ISO R1, and the rest from the DC Dev ISO R2. Now everything is working. :)

Now there is only one problem left after the installation of KOS development environment.
Have anybody an idea what I can do to see my path in BASH? I can type an path but I can?t see it. Must there perhaps be an entry in the profile file under Cygwin\etc\ ? If that file have something to do with it, can anyone post the entries of this file? Thanks to everybody for a good advise :) !!!

You can do what I did, and install Cygwin from the R1 disc. And then you can install the rest from the R2 disc.

After a lot of time trying setup DC_DEV_R2 I've decided to build a Dreamcast Enviroment on Linux system.I've get a script on other topic in this forum and finaly I geting a working sh and arm compiler(Linux system is very much better! I'm now a NIX user).

My question now is, how to setup Code::Blocks for a DC compiler? I see a topic but incomplete. Someone knows how to?

Yes, a new/complete tutorial to set up a DC compiler for Code Blocks, Dev C++ or Visual C++ Express 2005 would be great :D . I?ve tried to make one with Dev C++ after a the tutorial on this site http://dreamcast.dcemu.co.uk/devcconfig.php.
I searched for the correct dirs for binaries, libraries on my pc... but in the end I got compile errors. Perhaps this tutorial is very old.

But perhaps this would help:

It's a wizard for Visual C++ but I assume my OS Win98SE is too old.

I was wondering if there have been any advances since the dcdev iso2 that would warrant the creation of a V3. I'm getting ready to set up a dev environment on my new PC and want to make sure I have the newest and greatest ;) Also, are there any good instructions on how to use gdb with the DC?

I thought about updating the autorun program to install the tools on the disc but that's not exactly worth repackaging for a new release. The Code::Block configuration currently has my eye on it...

Simply dropping everything into a subfolder under the Code::Blocks install folder doesn't work right. It probably doesn't like the space in "Program Files" since it tells me it can't find cygintl-3.dll.

why not install it into /cygwin/code::blocks or something similar?

also, I've been thinking a great idea for it would be to include a bunch of classic DC homebrews or emus (with some PDroms) that could be automatically placed into a /projects/examples/ folder. That way everyone that starts out isn't only given the paltry kos 'examples' but functioning programs.

I wanted to create a small DC environment installer for Code::Blocks but since most of Cygwin is still used small isn't exactly gonna happen.

What about using MinGW?

That probably could work.

Oh, and (I just installed the deviso, so this is a real-time complaint =P) you should find the newest stable (not chui's) addon SDL libs to add into v3 (SDL_mixer, SDL_image, SDL_ttf, and the likes).

So, is V2 using Chui's SDL? Did V1 use it also?

v2 doesn't have anything. I can't remember what v1 had. I say we should include gpf's sdl build (considering we're using his toolchain and whatnot =P)

If I have time at some point, I should be able to compile SMPEG for DC as well--or, at least I can make sure it compiles under Linux and send somebody an archive with a DC makefile that should work on cygwin. It probably won't play videos well, but I think it's needed if you want to get MP3 files to work with SDL_mixer. Reaper ported it quite a while ago, but if I recall correctly, his version had a bunch of stuff commented out and some wierd stuff hacked in to make it play nice with KOS 1.2.0, but that stuff shouldn't be necessary with KOS 1.3.x.

Hallo,
where can I find the R1 disc?
Isn't it possible to make a new tutorial with Dev C++ support?
Please.

Please.
There's this tutorial at DCEm UK though it looks like you noticed it already. I don't know C or use any compilers like that but I did think about redoing a tutorial for setting up Dev-C++ for Dreamcast programming. It's still on my todo list, I just haven't found the time to actually sit down and do it yet.

@fackue
Thanks for the fast reply and the link for the dcdev r1.zip.

The Tutorial at DCEmu UK is for an old KOS ~v 1.25.

A Tutorial for Dev-C++ and the a newer KOS would be great, because it's easier to use for non programmers or noobs (like me).

I try once again to get the KOS and Dev-C++ run, maybe the rev1 helps.

Thanks for your help.

I didn't realize it used an older KOS version. I'll look into it before the end of the month.
