RetroPie on Pine64 debian
#1
Question 
Hi All!

as the RasPi 2 can run several emulated retro games with RetroPie I wanted to run it on my fresh and much faster Pine64.

I have to admit that the beggining was not to easy. After installing several missing packages finally I was able to build it properly on Pine64 / debian. 

The problem is that the EmulationStation runs on my Pine64 extremely slowly. When I push a arrow on my keyboard it takes about 3 seconds to I get feedback on my display / and that is only a selection change in the menu. Sad(
On RasPi 2 it is very fluent. 

The problem is / maybe - as I'm not an expert of this topic / that there is no Pine64 platform possibility for RetroPie - for that reason I had to set the __platform environmental variable to "generic-x11". It compiles but it runs extremely slowly as I wrote.
I don't have any other idea.

Is there anybody who has an idea how to solve it?

Hi Bart333, that sounds great! Is it under work or is it ready already? How will I be able to get it? Via updating the system? Will I have to rebuild the RetroPie with some kind of different settings?...

Right... the best way to get up-to-date reports on development status is to check in and chat with us on the irc chat site (see below). Many of our developers are active participants, and a couple of them love to write monologues of their on-going everts, and they even engage in Q&A with members of the chat frequently (although, not all the time).

Besides, from time to time during the day, it proves to be a fun place to hang out !    Shy

please join us for a chat @  irc.pine64.xyz:6667   or ssl  irc.pine64.xyz:6697

( I regret that I am not able to respond to personal messages;  let's meet on irc! )
