I’m trying to compile a simple revision of Retroarch where pressing the power actually turns off the console instead of returning to loader. I’m having some difficulty though and would really appreciate any help!
First, I’m just trying to compile retroarch wii without any changes on my Ubuntu machine. I installed devkitppc and the necessary libraries by following this site: https://devkitpro.org/wiki/Getting_Started/devkitPPC
Then I started following the directions here: https://github.com/libretro/docs/blob/master/docs/compilation/wii.md
However, I cannot seem to find a ‘.a’ file that I can rename to ‘libretro_wii.a’ for when I execute the ‘make -f Makefile.griffin platform=wii’ command. I downloaded libretro-super-master because I read that’s a way to get a ‘.a’ file, however, after fetching snes9x2002 and attempting to make the file, I only found a ‘.so’ file.
Does anyone know what I may be doing wrong here, or how I can get a libretro_wii.a file?
