Atari TOS/FreeMiNT

The Atari build is very similar to the Linux one. The build might work on native machine with gcc 4.3> compiler, but it wasn't tested. You can also build binary for Coldfire based machines(e.g. Firebee) by replacing '-m68020-60' in makefile with '-mcpu=5475'(you can use '-mcfv4e' too, but this option may be deprecated in future versions of gcc, so '-mcpu=5475' is more favourable). Preferable way is to build GrafX2 with use of cross compiler, you can get one from Vincent Rivière site(URL: There are versions for win32 (Cygwin) and debian packages for latest Ubuntu (32/64bit).

Before compilation you have to build all the needed libraries mentioned in requirements.

To compile a Atari TOS executable, type in

        make ATARICROSS=1 prefix=/usr/m68k-atari-mint

You can also add other options like NOTTF, NOLUA, NOLAYERS etc. to enable/disable program features..

If you don't know how build libraries here's some hints. Please note that prefix path in examples below is valid only under Linux, in case of Cygwin the path will be '/opt/m68k-atari-mint'. There will be no prefix when building on native machine. You have to omit 'sudo' under Cygwin and native build. Stick to this order and you will be fine ;> ... The versions of libraries were tested, you can also try newer versions. As I mentioned earlier, replace '-m68020-60' with '-mcpu=5475' if you want to target Coldfire machines.

libpng (optional, for png reading in SDL_image)

note: you will need libzip too

libpng 1.2.44

./configure --prefix=/usr/m68k-atari-mint --disable-shared --enable-static --host=m68k-atari-mint CFLAGS="-m68020-60 -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer"
sudo make install

or libpng 1.4.44

./configure --prefix=/usr/m68k-atari-mint --disable-shared --enable-static --host=m68k-atari-mint CFLAGS="-m68020-60 -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -DPNG_NO_SETJMP"
sudo make install

libjpeg, libtiff (optional, for jpeg/tiff support in SDL_image)

./configure --prefix=/usr/m68k-atari-mint --disable-shared --enable-static --host=m68k-atari-mint CFLAGS="-m68020-60 -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer"
sudo make install

freetype 2.4.4 (optional, for TTF fonts support, required by SDL_ttf)

./configure --prefix=/usr/m68k-atari-mint --disable-shared --enable-static --host=m68k-atari-mint CFLAGS="-m68020-60 -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer" 
sudo make install 

lua 5.0.4 (optional, for LUA scripting support)

Here you have to customize makefiles, add prefixes, platform has to be set as generic.

SDL 1.2 (mandatory)

note: best is to grab it directly from Mercurial repository
./configure --prefix=/usr/m68k-atari-mint --disable-shared --enable-static --host=m68k-atari-mint --disable-video-opengl --disable-shared --enable-static --disable-threads CFLAGS="-m68020-60 -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer"
sudo make install 

SDL_ttf (optional, for ttf fonts support, depends on SDL and freetype)

./configure --prefix=/usr/m68k-atari-mint --disable-shared --enable-static --host=m68k-atari-mint --disable-shared --enable-static --with-sdl-prefix=/usr/m68k-atari-mint --with-freetype-prefix=/usr/m68k-atari-mint CFLAGS=" -m68020-60 -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer"
sudo make install 

SDL_image 1.2.10 (mandatory)

./configure --prefix=/usr/m68k-atari-mint --disable-shared --enable-static --host=m68k-atari-mint --disable-shared --enable-static --with-sdl-prefix=/usr/m68k-atari-mint CFLAGS="-DHAVE_OPENGL=0 -m68020-60 -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer"
sudo make install
