Date 6-Jul-2007 7:14:04
Topic: hardware OS4


Fresh from Spot's bedroom! - Spot's Porting for Dummies 1.6.1.
Failed to port stuff with the last version? Cheer up lad!
This guide is new and improved! Have another go! You can do it!
Read the history for a detailed list of changes.
http://os4depot.net/?function=showfile&file=document/manual/spots_pfd.txt

Update:
Read more for what's new in version 1.6.4.

WHY SHOULD I READ THIS? I CAN'T CODE!
=====================================

Well, the sad fact is that, neither can I! :) I am just a stubborn geezer!
And look at me now... 300+ uploads to http://os4depot.net compiling
multiplatform stuff for AmigaOS 4.0 isn't THAT hard, c'mon! If I can do it,
you can do it too! You'll jump up and down screaming when you managed to
compile your first SDL app, I did! To my defence I have to say that I had
to figure out a lot of the process the hard way! :P
