What do you think you would achieve with this, GizmoTheGreen?

There's a lot of homebrew for the gamecube and none would really benefit from exFAT support. I would just recommend using FAT32 cards with your GC.

In case anyone is actually interested in doing this, the optimal way would be to write a shim library to allow using fatFS as a drop-in replacement for libfat. Probably not a lot of work, but requires recompiling applications individually, and as you've noticed, a lot of them simply won't compile with newer versions of dkPPC (or will compile, but have some other problem).

Well luckily I had a spare sdcard, but imagine if I only have one and I use it for more than my gamecube? we have exfat support in iplboot and swiss. it surely wouldn't hurt keeping most of the useful tools up to date and compilable with latest dkppc/libogc for future use, would it?

and another example on the top of my head, long movies in mplayer-ce :twisted: or why not a full dvd-image 4,7gb.
why limit ourselves when we can modernize?

I got a bit further compiling GCMM but it got stuck on something with libpng now... something about missing links. it's beyond what I'm experienced with.

GCMM doesn't need libpng, only freetype which depends on zlib.

It looks like freetype uses those for whatever reason, so you'll have to install the portlibs for them as well.
