Retroarch on A64
#31
Sorry to resurrect a dead thread, but the script on the first page is no longer working.

I've tried a prebuilt image with Retroarch from the first page, and Retroarch mostly works. Most games will crash the system once you try and exit them to get back to the main Retroarch menu. I've tried to upgrade they system with apt-get dist-upgrade, which just tanks performance. Retroarch launches but the menu operates at around 1fps.

Any chance Luke could update the script for a more current version of the release? Or if pfeerick would have a more recent image with Retroarch 1.75 and such?

I have not seen a lakka build for this board that works properly yet.

Thanks.

Very unlikely that I will update the script. I should probably lock the thread :Smile but I am happy to help out whoever wishes to resurrect this. I think that having a mainline based build - using jernej's LibreELEC work would be great.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Any working images you can point me to then?

The Lakka team have been producing nightly test images for pine64 here:
http://nightly.builds.lakka.tv/Lakka-LE9...n/A64.arm/

It uses the Mali GPU driver currently until Lima matures but otherwise runs really well on my Pine A64.

It should be plenty mature for games, since it does so well on the PinePhone Smile regardless, what kernel does it use?

Currently the base is 5.1 (LibreElec 9.2) but there is a PR to update the codebase to LibreElec 9.3
