Here is a quick and dumb note to make and
burn NetBSD/dreamcast 5.0.1 bootable CD-R
on Windows and Cygwin.
(caution: not fully confirmed yet and tested only on XP)
0. See Cygwin User's Guide first:
1. Open http://cygwin.com/
Click "Install or update now!"
and start installer
2. Choose A Donwload Source:
Select "Install from Internet" and "next"
3. Select Root Install Directory:
"Root Directory" -> Specify directory for Cygwin ("c:\cygwin" etc.)
"Install for" -> Select "All users" or "Just Me" as you like
"Default Text File Type" -> Select "Unix / binary(RECOMMENDED)" as noted
4. Select Local Package Directory:
Specify directory you choose
5. Slect Your Internet Connection:
Select per your environment
6. Choose A Donwload Site:
Use an appropriate mirror
7. Select Packages:
Click "view" button if you want to browse all packages.
- Optional packages required for build:
gcc-core (3.4.4 is enough)
XXX: maybe some more?
It will take a few minutes
9. Create Icons
Check buttons as you like
10. Start Cygwin
Click "Cygwin" icon and get Cygwin's command window
11. Fetch a dumb Makefile to create CD
$ mkdir dc
$ cd dc
$ wget -nc http://www.ceres.dti.ne.jp/~tsutsui/netbsd/dc-cygwin/Makefile
(XXX: won't work with proxy)
12. Build and install cdrtools utility (for mkisofs and cdrecord)
$ make cdrtools
(XXX: fetching files won't work with proxy)
It will take a few minutes again
13. Set blank CD-R media into your CD-R drive on your PC
Here assuming that your CD-R drive is at primary on the secondary IDE.
If you have a different one, edit the Makefile and change CDRDEV variable
per output of "cdrecord -dev=help" command.
(XXX: not sure what for USB one)
14. Create tools and image, and burn CD-R
(XXX: fetching files might fail)
15. Boot it
Set the prepared CD-R into your Dreamcast and boot it
Note some fragile GD-ROM drives might require several retries to read CD-R
