Re: startx sh script

But when I run it, it says "X: user not authorized to run the X server, aborting." Are you running the Foundation's recommended Raspbian jessie image, or something else? In the recommended image, /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config says "allowed_users=anybody", so I do not see how the message you quote can oc...

The purpose for this script is so I can run run startx from the emulationstation. But it doesn't even work in the terminal. Anyway, th...

Since it does say RC3 but I must of been mistaken or maybe RC3 is the final release. I tried building it on a 64bit ubuntu but I ended up not being sure how to ins...

Problems with using Advanced Launcher on Kodi 15.2

So I installed Advanced Launcher on Kodi 15.2 with the Raspbian Jessie distro... I'm not entirely sure if it's even supported or not, but It does work somewhat... I'm able to launch a sh file to reboot, and I could even run a sh script to quit out of kodi with pkill kodi.bin. But if I launch startx ...

Compiling Kodi for RPi2 on Ubuntu 32bit

So I am trying to compile Kodi 15.2 for my RPi2 with the Raspbian Jesse distro. I notice that the repo currently has Kodi 15.1. So I decided to compile Kodi on my own but ran into one small problem, I can only run Linux in 32bit and I'm trying to follow these directions https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/...

Can't wait for a version 2. I think you should include a gb/gbc emulator and a gba. Not saying what specific emulators but the retroarch for the gb/gbc worked fine for me with Tetris. For the gba I haven't tried the retroarch, I have tried the gpsp witch worked good with some changing settings for f...

Re: Emulating Raspberry Pi in Windows the easy way

So is this safe to use to set up my pi in windows then put it on my pi? It looks like it would be easy but I'm not sure if I may run into any problems with the emulation compiling things and all. It seems like this would be a nice way to set up a distro small and not too big. And still be able to us...
