A guide for how I made RetroPie, RetroArch, and EmulationStation Work on the Rock64

Next challenge is to try and make the build able to cross compile for armhf (32-bit) and then hack the retropie setup script to force the cross compile to see if it improves performance on some of the more demanding emulators (PSX, N64, GC). Anyone with experience in either of those feel free to speak up!

Hey Mrfixit2001, I was happy to see your guide and some of your troubleshooting.

I'm trying to follow it on the latest image of DietPi, which runs on debian 9 arm64.
It's not working, is there any developtment in this approach since 2017?

One of the main hiccups I've been seeing is that there's no package or source for "libmali-rk-dev". I got past the SDL error

By the way, there's a binary for retroach in this distribution (and apt install it works), why doesn't retropie setup script just uses it? Is it really necessary to build retroach and emulationstation from source?

Here's a log of the events:

Edit:
Was able to install emulationstation and retroarch, but now the emulationstation command in terminal shows this error:

Code:
rock64@DietPi:~$ emulationstation
lvl0:   Error - File type unknown!
emulationstation: /home/rock64/RetroPie-Setup-4.3/tmp/build/emulationstation/es-core/src/resources/Font.cpp:17: Font::FontFace::FontFace(ResourceData&&, int): Assertion `!err' failed.

Edit2:
tried the install with the pull edits on the latest minimal ubuntu armhf image. It installs everything, but emulationstation won't run.
It's funny, because depending on the libmali (rk-dev, utgard, etc.) deb package I installed, I got a different error. Some of then just hanged in a black screen, some had issues regarding sdl2 and so on.
There's probably a better approach to troubleshoot this, but I have no idea which it is ahaha
