This will install all cores. Alternatively specify core instead of *

Code:
sudo apt-get install libretro*

Thanks, it works. Sonic the Hedgehog running, just not so smooth like on real Sega Genesis or my PC Smile

I also wonder why even Atari 2600 games do not run smooth in full screen mode.

It takes a lot of tweaking to make everything run smoothly. If you have a Pine64 board then just try this - I did all the hard work for you. Its a heavily modified ubuntu image that launches an optimised Retroarch build on boot (note that exiting Retroarch powers down the board).

I have Pinebook only, so I think I will not use this, but thanks anyway.

I wonder why is 2D graphics so slow when DRM is enabled and fast while it is disabled. I see the difference mainly when moving the windows etc. in KDE Plasma.

Yeah, I noticed that too... DRM sucks when just doing normal desktop-y stuff (there you go tkaiser... that's the benchmarking for you... it sucks :-P - and it will have to remain empirical benchmarking for now as the  tools I've tried so far don't wanna work on the pinebook) ... but now that there is a proper enable/disable script (thanks ayufan!) I'm leaving it disabled and re-enabling my nice software composition effects Wink... too many white flashing boxes and other artefacts just doing things like dragging a window or opening a caja window for me to warrant leaving it on for everyday use. But that's fine for me atm... I don't do anything that warrants needing DRM AND 'normal' 2D performance atm, so I can live with that.

Can you check how it works with fbturbo?

I would expect the performance to be roughly the same, as it doesn't really differ.

Wizzard, since you were keen on trying retroarch on the Pinebook please run this script on a ubuntu minimal image Smile
