Re: My social retro-gaming distro for the pi.

XBMC intergration would be sweet. I would love to help via kickstarter but that amazon payment system they use hates me.
Is the distro based from rasbian? Have you seen my UltraSlim? This sounds like it would supersede my creation and be much better solution for the community. Awesome!

Openelec is it's own operating system, so no.
UltraSlim is in need of updating. Time permitting (Yes, real life sucks and I do have a full time job), I will likely begin work on 2.0 in the coming weeks. Thanks to this awesome community for keeping it going.

New XBMC Gotham (13) stable build link is now in post #1. Enjoy.
Note, I have not tested it. I only built it. But I am assumping all is well. Let me know if it doesn't boot or something. That's what backups are for.

Hmm, I remember having a similar problem and it was because I was calling on the wrong controller name... I would look at the controller names. I believe I use the event one. You really need to be testing if the xboxdrv is working though, outside xbmc first. #Copy the name of your PS3 Controller Dri...

My builds of XBMC do not include airplay (slim builds afterall). If you want airplay maybe try a different built? Do the nightlies have it?

The only way I ever got it work was with xboxdrv. Took some googling and reading the actual xboxdrv documentation . Ofcourse the controller you use can be a make or break. But typically if you have a wired controller, you should be able to get it to work with enough patience. unfortunately it is dif...

XBMC 13 Gotham recently started requiring the libxslt package to run. If you don't already have it installed, here is how to do it: sudo apt-get install libxslt1.1 Repost (due to forum rollback) I got around to testing your latest gotham build. Installed just fine via updatexbmc. Thanks for sharing.

1: Add roms to the correct folders
2: It just works. Windows should auto detect the share if on the same network, and you don't have some wierd firewall blocking it.

Look at modifying the "startup" script in home. Currently it loads emulationstation. on startup. But you could possibly have it load emulationstation, wait a few seconds, then load the xbmc script. Try adding/replacing the following in that "startup" script. I have not tested the change. But let me ...

If your file system is truly expanded then do the following, will get you out of the loop. sudo touch /var/log/firstboot-donotdelete.log If you have no joystick to configure you should not be using the script to configure a joystick for retroarch. I am pretty sure Retroarch already has mapping's for...
