Running x86 software
#11
You can install QEMU, Virtlib and VM Manager.
All available in the Manjaro repository.

You have to start VirtLib by hand.

I've compiled box86 on Manjaro and I've been able to run x86 vim through it. Basic instructions:

- install docker(Arch wiki is your friend)
- use this image as base: https://hub.docker.com/r/arm32v7/debian/
- inside the Debian container, install the dependencies and compile box86(https://github.com/ptitSeb/box86)
- add i386 to apt's architecture list(https://wiki.debian.org/Multiarch/HOWTO)
- install i386 vim(apt install vim:i386)
- run it: "<BOX86_PATH>/box86 vim"

I've been also able to install i386 wine from https://wiki.winehq.org/Debian, I had to install some dependencies from .deb packages because they weren't in Debian's repositories. My goal was to mess with old Windows games(box86 has a video of Neverwinter Nights running), but then I've managed to loss my progress and I have a thesis to write; ). Next step would be to get X11 running with debian's docker, run something like "box86 wine notepad", and then move on to trying games. It seems like just using Debian would be a more straightforward way, but I don't want to lose AUR with such limited binary package selection.

It would be best if you could write this all into a Dockerfile, making it easier for all others (and hopefully yourself as well) to re-build a new docker image

I'm sure I'll do it if I get to the final result, i.e. working box86+wine+graphical interface. I wanted to share partial results since I'll probably abandon the idea for a few weeks.

Configuring box86 with -DARM_DYNAREC=1 can significantly help performance.
Debian stable has a very old version of Mesa so you'll want to use Debian testing (bullseye) or compile it yourself.

To get X11 working in docker, you'll want to bind /tmp/.X11-unix and /dev/dri into the container. Maybe you'll need to set DISPLAY to what it is outside the container. box86+Wine should work with X11, though I found that I needed to run winecfg and enable the virtual desktop to get anything using OpenGL working.

At least with a new enough Mesa and PAN_MESA_DEBUG=gl3, some D3D9 stuff will work through Wine's OpenGL wrapper, and I've been trying to get Gallium Nine working for native D3D9 support in Panfrost.

Nice, I was able to get Dwarf Fortress running!

I used debootstrap to install Debian armhf, then cloned and compiled Box86 inside there.

Downloaded df_linux and had to change the start script to invoke Box86, then install some missing libraries.

It is working at a comparatively playable 25 FPS, but I'm sure it can be optimized with settings.

I've experimented some more, without great results - I've connected X server, Docker, 32-bit Debian, i386 wine and box86, but I weren't able to run anything exciting. I'm a bit tired now, but here is the Dockerfile:


Code:
FROM arm32v7/debian:bullseye

##### Get i386 vim
RUN dpkg --add-architecture i386
RUN apt-get update
RUN apt-get -y upgrade
RUN apt-get -y dist-upgrade
#RUN apt-get install -y libc:i386
RUN apt install -y git cmake g++ python3 gnupg wget libstb0:i386 \
    libavcodec58:i386 libavutil56:i386 libsdl2-2.0-0:i386 libxxf86vm1 \
    libfaudio0:i386 libxcb-randr0 libwine libgl1 mesa-utils \
    libxinerama1 libxrandr2 libxcomposite1 libxi6 libxfixes3 libxcursor1

##### Get wine
RUN wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key
RUN apt-key add winehq.key
RUN echo "deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/debian/ bullseye main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/wine.list
RUN apt update
RUN apt install -y --install-recommends winehq-stable:i386 wine-stable:i386 \
    wine-stable-i386:i386

##### Get box86
RUN mkdir /home/developer
RUN mkdir /home/developer/Builds
WORKDIR /home/developer/Builds
RUN git clone https://github.com/ptitSeb/box86
WORKDIR /home/developer/Builds/box86
RUN mkdir build
WORKDIR /home/developer/Builds/box86/build
RUN cmake .. -DARM_DYNAREC=ON -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo && \
    make -j5 install
ENV PAN_MESA_DEBUG=gl3


In order to run something, I'm using x11docker(available for AUR) with following command:
Code:
x11docker --hostdisplay --gpu --pulseaudio --clipboard --hostnet --limit=1 --home=$HOME --workdir=$HOME <image_name> box86 wine explorer /desktop=name,800x600 <absolute_path_to_exe>


The most interesting case is Neverwinter Nights, I think, since it's flashy and it works on other devices/configs. Without PAN_MESA_DEBUG=gl3 it silently exits. With PAN_MESA_DEBUG=gl3 I get a segmentation fault. I'm able to run the launcher and the config utility, but not the actual game. I'm using GOG version extracted with innoextract. The OS is Manjaro.

We have some Videos of  Box86 on RK3399 hardware mostly tested on RockPro64 and RockPi4C boards with TwisterOS Armbian V1.0
Obviously, they should run without problems on Pinebook Pro.

Nope, itś really slow. https://youtu.be/2PXxufqXMyA

Probably you can get better performance with something like Hangover, but it will take years before it gets to a usable state.
