Decided to give msys a try and ended up getting FWCellInput errors for the samples/fw "make" and for the testapp "make."
This can be really complicated when you're new to all this. I suppose I'll stick to cygwin for now since I can get that running pretty easy. Only problem I'm having with cygwin is getting the ps3toolchain installed. Keep getting errors. I'll keep trying till I succeed though
I'll retry msys again later, I thought maybe it had to deal with my environment but that can't be it since it started to process the make file but ran into an error at FWCellInput. So that means my environment is being read. I double checked also that I had all the 3.41 SDK files copied over the 1.92 SDk.
Still having fun in the process, so I will get these to work at will, eventually.
