I am a Windows user, so here are the steps I had to go through:
1. Install cygwin to emulate a Unix environment on Windows. But when you install and it asks you to choose the components, make sure these are selected:
autoconf2.59 (or greater)
2. Then try to get the PSP Toolchain from PS2Dev.org PSP Toolchain Download
3. Extract the folder to your cygwin home/user directory, so you have for example d:\\cygwin\\home\\user\\psptoolchain
Note that maybe on your computer, "user" maybe another name, like your computer''s username. Who knows
4. Then run cygwin and type:
echo ''export PSPDEV=/usr/local/pspdev'' >> .bashrc
echo ''export PATH=$PATH:$PSPDEV/bin'' >> .bashrc
5. And then edit your cygwin.bat file (rightclick and edit) to make sure it looks like this:
bash --login -i
Note: replace x with your drive letter. And your cygwin maybe in another folder, like x:\\program files\\cygwin\\
6. Alright, then close cygwin, reopen it, and type:
PSP Toolchain will start installing!
From here, everything should be ok and you can follow the instructions from PSP Programming to start your programming.
Please be reminded that I am also a PSP programming noob and I went through hell to get the above solved. So I hope others do not experience the same crap that I did. Thus, the existence of this page.
Update: OK, after doing the steps above, the psp toolchain seemed to install successfully. But it did not. Lots of errors popped up when I was compiling my psp program so I had to find other ways, and that led to the precompiled cygwin with psptoolchain...
