[edit] did you have correct syntax for --disable-neon ? - if not, perhaps its trying to cross-compile ?

Yes, and added --disable-dynamic to correct the error Error: Dynamic loading of libretro is enabled, but your platform does not appear to have dlopen(), use --disable-dynamic or --with-libretro="-lretro".

Ok, do some googling and see what you come up with. I'll get back on this monday. Perhaps I'll even get a chance to fetch the original image on some stable internet and flash it to a SD card. Are you doing this on KDE Neon or another image ?

I am doing it on KDE Neon.

I realised you can install RetroArch directly using the built in Software Center in the Games category, and I was able update to update it to the latest nightly build, but I have not found a way to install cores yet.

Yea, sure, you can install using apt get and install all the cores too - but its just going to be software rendered, so there is no point.
You need to compile it with the correct flags to get acceleration. If you want to confirm this, you can install the lastest stable build with all cores by adding the ppa:


Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libretro/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install retroarch libretro-*

I get the following error for the first 2:

And when I try the last one...
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package libretro-common
E: Unable to locate package libretro-db


Without those packages, I cannot continue.

Any ideas at all?

Thanks in advance.

If its not dead - which it isn't, I was just speculating - just allow unauthentificated ppas

Allowing authenticated ppass does not seem to work, the error message continues to be the same, unfortunately

I may have time to look into it this coming weekend. I'll use Neon BSP Armbian as a starting point.

I got Star Wars Dark Forces working in DosBox after tweaking the config from steam. I think it's really cool to get this classic working on my pine book.

here is my config:
___________________________________________________
[sdl]
fullscreen=true

[render]
frameskip=0
aspect=false
scaler=normal3x

[cpu]
cputype=auto
cycles=auto

[autoexec]
mount c "/export/dosbox/darkfor"
c:\
DARK.EXE
exit
______________________________________

please note that the 'mount c "<dir>"' should be the directory with dark forces installed.

i'm using the dosbox that is available in the default repo for Ayufun Bionic image.

When I get Tomb Raider working I'll share that config too, I got the GOG version.

I got tomb raider working, but it is really slow, i get opengl errors Sad and it's running software mode. anyone else try this?

I decided to install the Android 6 image and it seems to be a much better platform for games. There are the games available in the play store, I have tried KOTOR and it works fine. I also tried Xash3d with half-life and it was running some where between 30-60fps, apps are available for Counter strike and blue shift. The 64-bit version of retroarch froze on me, so I just uninstalled it. I have gotten an app that will run return to castle Wolfenstein (rtcw4a) on the XDA forums. Gaming on the Pinebook would be best with Android from my experience.
