Requesting assistance with PSL1GHT

So I got around to attempting to return to working on PS3 homebrew. But I’ve been having some trouble with PSL1GHT.

I installed the v0.03 Beta PSL1GHT V2 DevkitPro addon (I already had DevkitPro installed for Wii homebrew). But it didn’t come with any examples so I went and got the PNG sample from the normal release of PSL1GHT but I wasn’t able to get it actually compile. I don’t know if that’s to be expected (its my understanding that there is some meaningful differences between normal PSL1GHT and what is included in the addon).

So I figured, fuck it, I’ll just use normal PSL1GHT.

The PSL1GHT wiki has three tutorials for setting up PSL1GHT on Windows. The MingW one acknowledges that it does not work. The GnuWin32 is nothing but a link to the GnuWin32 installer. Finally the CygWin one which is by comparison the most complete gives me an error instructing me to install gcc before continuing when I get to entering ./ But gcc is in fact already installed.

Would anybody be willing to help me out?

I use Windows and would prefer to continue working in Windows instead of needing to dual boot or use a VM.

Should I just go back to using the leaked SDK? Or should I wait it out well the PSL1GHT people finish getting their shit together?

  1. Normal psl1ght on ubuntu?
    Check out
    It’s a site I’m working on.
    It will soon be

    1. Cool. I look forward to seeing the site completed.

      Should I take this to mean that the DevkitPro addon isn’t actually usable? The installation page you have for Windows shows it exclusively but the following pages seem to assume that the reader has a regular installation of PSL1GHT.

      I would really prefer to be able to use Windows rather then Ubuntu…

      Oh and I noticed a mistyped phrase.
      “Your Now Doing installing”
      should probably say
      “You’re now done installing”

      1. Devkitpro is useable, it uses a different makefile to compile.
        I’ll talk with miigitu (or however you spell it) who is the creator of devkitpro. And then I’ll make the windows tutorial better. Cause it sucks right now.

  2. I would recommend you dual boot ubuntu cause it’s really easy.
    Atleast till devkitpro is combatible with psl1ght v1

  3. Hello I love your games but when you are going to make ps3 games again can you please make a new version of Cubicle Shooter? xD

        1. yes for GCC. As mentioned in the comment above it incorrectly thinking that I hadn’t was a problem that seems to have been resolved. I’m not actually sure about binutils. I just followed what it said to do here.

          (google cache because the wiki is down at the moment)

          1. Ya idk what’s up with it.
            I think it would be more worth your time to dual boot ubuntu.
            In the meantime I’ll ask around and see what I can find out.

          2. I installed Ubuntu a few days ago and finally got around to setting up PSL1GHT with it.

            I noticed a typo. In step five of your tutorial for setting for linux it says
            which I’m assuming should be

            But anyway I’m stuck at that part because libelf (and a few of the others though most of them where fine) wasn’t installable in the way described in your tutorial. I’m assuming it shouldn’t be difficult to get another way but I haven’t looked yet.


          3. That gave me an error also (a diffrent one this time though) so I just went and downloaded and installed libelf-dev with the Ubuntu Software Center.

            Now I get this error

            purple@purple-H6410:/usr/local/ps3dev/ps3toolchain$ ./toolchain.shERROR: Add /usr/local/ps3dev/ppu/bin to your path before continuing.
            ../depends/ Failed.

          4. In Ubuntu unhide all your files
            then go to your home directory and open the folder named “.bashrc”
            Scroll down to th bottom and type this in
            #Set PS3 toolchain
            export PS3DEV=/usr/local/ps3dev
            export PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/bin
            export PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/host/ppu/bin
            export PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/host/spu/bin

            #Set PSL1GHT
            export PSL1GHT=$PS3DEV/psl1ght
            export PATH=$PATH:$PSL1GHT/host/bin

          5. That had no effect. It still tells me “ERROR: Add /usr/local/ps3dev/ppu/bin to your path before continuing.
            ../depends/ Failed.”

          6. Then use this:

            #Set PS3 toolchain
            export PS3DEV=/usr/local/ps3dev
            export PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/bin
            export PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/ppu/bin
            export PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/spu/bin

            #Set PSL1GHT
            export PSL1GHT=$PS3DEV/psl1ght
            export PATH=$PATH:$PSL1GHT/host/bin

          7. The #Set PSL1GHT is wrong in the comment I posted above.
            Put this:
            #Set PSL1GHT
            export PSL1GHT=$PS3DEV/psl1ght
            export PATH=$PATH:$PSL1GHT/bin

          8. Awesome. Can you join #psl1ght
            On efnet
            If there isn’t a irc app for ubuntu, use
