Brett, if you're referring to building the repo yourself, just follow the instructions on the repo wiki. There's instructions for Linux & Windows. Under Windows, I use MinGW as my host environment, some use CygWIN. There's step-by-step instructions for both.

Gene, Bill.  thanks!  I remember the build process being unintelligible,but I think there's been a bunch of work recently to address this.  So I'llaim for fixing the .d files associates with the cocofpga build...Btw: I guess the practical problem I am trying to solve is as of now isfpga users can easily boot nitros, or decb from the sd card, but not BOTH,without reflashing their externel ROM.  :(Now: do I have to worry about any source .def, .d, templates that go ontothe target fs for self hosting nitros building?On Wednesday 08 March 2017 13:01:21 Bill Pierce via Coco wrote:> Brett, pre-setting descriptor values is no big deal, a little> confusing due to the fact that the superdesc builds for 5 different> systems/types, but still not hard.

The new defs file could handle all that dirty work.Since you are more familiar with it, I never managed to see the sdc cardI have, probably because I had it in the wrong mpi slot. Someday, whenmy hard drives are about ~30~ I'll have to get up some enthusiasm tomake it work. I'll have to admit it is not near the top of my todo listatm.>>>>> Bill Pierce> "Charlie stole the handle, and the train it won't stop going, no way> to slow down!" - Ian Anderson - Jethro Tull>>>> My Music from the Tandy/Radio Shack Color Computer 2 & 3> https://sites.google.com/site/dabarnstudio/> Co-Contributor, Co-Editor for CocoPedia> http://www.cocopedia.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page> Global Moderator for TRS-80/Tandy Color Computer Forums> http://www.tandycoco.com/forum/>> E-Mail: ooogalapasooo at aol.comCheers, Gene Heskett--"There are four boxes to be used in defense of liberty: soap, ballot, jury, and ammo.
