Command not found

Command not found

Sorry, may be a noob question, but I always get "[make] rm: command not found"when I try to build.

The source is the 3rd person demo by iamabe + oyzzo, with little changes.
I'm running devkit on Vista.

And before someone suggests googling it: I already did that, but obviously it brought no results.

Sounds like you accidently typed "rm" somwhere in your program.

is rm in your makefile?

rm is a standard unix command to delete stuff (which is not present normally on windows). I'm not experienced with devkitpro on windows, but you may want to alter your makefile and/or use mingw/cygwin. Except you probably already are, so not sure what's up with that.

I agree. Sometimes in a "make" file I've encountered commands and/or an additional expected app that might not be present on your enviroment.
I too am on a windows platform and have come across similar to this. "RM" is calling to "delete" something and for some reason the method your using to compile the source (programmers notepad? / Ming32w?) is not recognising the command/app.

If it's PN, try opening a console window and manually entering the command to see if it knows what to do. Same for ming32w (although both should know this simple command).

Look in the makefile, find the rm line and fix it to be windows compatible. Do not quote me on this, but I think that there may be a macro to always use the right command, ${rm} or something like that I guess.
