VitaSDK. How to build.

apt-get install cmake git build-essential autoconf texinfo bison flex

Native compilation.

  • Linux host -> Linux toolchain.
  • OSX host -> OSX toolchain.
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make -j4

Cross compilation.

  • Linux host -> mingw32 toolchain
mkdir build
cd build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=toolchain-x86_64-w64-mingw32.cmake
make -j4

Cmake command-line options

You can pass then on the cmake phrase like this cmake .. -DFOO=ON.

If you want to fetch an specific revision of a part of the toolchain then you can pass the branch/tag/id from the command line. The available values are NEWLIB_TAG, TOOLCHAIN_TAG, PTHREAD_TAG, HEADERS_TAG and SAMPLES_TAG. For example:

cmake /path/to/cmakelists -DNEWLIB_TAG=0254c2dc0c2686f69580030af3cacc795c94d616

This will configure the vitasdk to use that newlib commit instead of the vita branch.

If you need to change the download directory used for the tarballs then do the following, for example:

cmake /path/to/cmakelists -DDOWNLOAD_DIR=$HOME/vitasdk_tarballs

The remote repositories won't be checked for updates if you run make again. If you don't want this behaviour then pass -DOFFLINE=NO to the cmake command line. This is only available if your CMake installation is 3.2.0 or greater, else it will always check for updates the next time you run make.

To change the default installation path a path to CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX, for example:

cmake /path/to/cmakelists -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME/vitasdk

If you want to create a tarball of the sdk then run the following command:

make tarball


Build scripts for the toolchain.
