[REQUEST]RetroArch BuildBot
#1
Hello there,

I am making this thread as a request to setup a RetroArch buildbot for the pinebook pro, so we can get can easily get up to date cores (and maybe even push them to the AUR?), while RetroArch is available through the AUR and that a good amount of cores are also available through it, some key ones, like mupen64, paralleln64, MAME, FBAlpha & FBNeo aren't available...

I've spoken with some libretro guys on Discord and they told me that the official buildbot doesn't provide aarch64 cores (probably won't until some time) but proof is they are buildable yet...

I know some are gonna say, "build the cores yourself" but first of all, it's a mess to build RetroArch cores and second of all it takes ages to build some of them, so a build bot would be plenty useful for the community, the pbp has good emulation capabilities annd it'd be a waste to not make them more easily accessible so that the most can use it Wink

I'm going to be more constructive than saying "Build them yourself" and instead say... "Set up a buildbot yourself"! : D

If you weren't gaming, maybe you'd have time to learn how?

I could do this but then again, I don't have the infrastructure to host it and make it available to the community Rolleyes

The pbp is teaching me a few things about building stuff on my own but all that touches RetroArch is way too clanky for me (inb4 "if you can't build it you don't deserve it")...
