- installing the psptoolchain on linux
- installing the minimalist pspsdk on linux via minpspw
- installing the minimalist pspsdk on windows via minpspw
this tut should hopefully help anyone who wishes to bother install the psptoolchain or the minimalist pspsdk. for those of you who dont know, the psptoolchain is the "official" sdk used to develop programs for the psp. the minimalist pspsdk is also used to compile programs to run on the psp but does not include everything included in the psptoolchain, only the necessary files.
while there are merits in installing the psptoolchain from scratch, for noobs (or even your average user), the minimalist pspsdk is much easier to install and get up and running and will provide you with everything you need, hence i suggest it for those groups.
at this time i will cover three methods of installation: installing the psptoolchain on linux, installing the minimalist pspsdk on linux via minpspw, and installing the minimalist pspsdk on windows via minpspg. there are other installation methods to get the full psptoolchain on windows, but those methods will not be covered today
note: this tutorial assumes that the reader has basic knowledge of how to use a computer and the appropriate operating system, which includes but is not limited to creating, moving, modifying, and deleting various files, as well as bash (linux) or dos (windows) commands. if you are not familiar with these operations i suggest you read up on them. there are tons of guides all over the internet.

please note that NONE of this is my work, only the tutorial. all credit goes to the wonderful devs who developed all of these tools, without which there would be no psp homebrew scene. all thanks go to them!
also, im obviously no expert, so if you notice any mistakes (trust me, im sure there are plenty ), feel free to post them and i will get it corrected. thanks!
