Re: PiFBA released - Final Burn Alpha arcade emulator

Is this no longer available on the pi store? I can't seem to find it.

Re: Intel Galileo

I think they missed the mark by not including an HDMI out. I realize they have added some extra goodies that none of other similar devices like BeagleBone Black or Arduino Tre have, but to omit HDMI when these other boards running Linux have that capability does nothing other than narrow the protent...

Re: Directfb/Pi

I'm not sitting at my pi right now so I may be mistaken about this, but I believe I created a .directfbrc file in my home dir (actuall in /root because i run it as root due to the tty0 permissions) with system=egl. That should get EGL working. I think I set other options like the height and width in...

Re: Directfb/Pi

I'm starting to feel like I'm talking to myself, but here is my latest progress :) After my last build I realized that none of the hardware acceleration was actually working, so I had to go back and fix that. My configure line is pasted below. I had to disable debug because I kept getting assert err...

Re: Directfb/Pi

I've had some success getting this to work. I've compiled versions of cairo (1.12.0), pango (1.30.1), gdk-pixbuf (2.26.1), DirectFB (1.6.0) and GTK+ (2.22.1). I compiled and installed everything under /usr/gtkdfb to keep it separated from everything else. Here is my setup which was gleaned from a bu...

Re: Directfb/Pi

I've gotten directfb (1.6.0) to compile and compiled GTK with the directfb backend enabled. When I try launching the gtk-demo I get a black screen with a mouse pointer before it locks up. The black screen and mouse pointer never go away and I have to ssh in and reboot. Does anyone have a suggestion ...

Re: Root password

Joan is correct. In the latest image (the one based on raspbian) the root password is not set. If follow the instructions above you should be all set. Worked for me.

Re: RetroArch Emulator Frontend

Just compiled and tested this, it seems it's just designed as an easier way to enter the command line options for RetroArch (you enter a ROM name, path to your libretro.so file, config file, etc. then it'll launch RetroArch). Unfortunately I didn't see any way to simply browse a library, nor gamepa...
