Gentoo + emulationstation + retroarch

Wed Feb 11, 2015 5:15 pm

I've been spending a few days on trying to get it to work, it's a pain in the ass (hopefully i've been using gentoo for x86/amd64 since 2001/2002), but it seems it's worth it : I did some benchmark on some random cps2 games (with fb-alpha-libretro, not piFBA), i'm still not at 100% speed on gentoo, but i'm actually getting an average increase of 4 fps against my Raspbian Retropie setup with same settings/revision.

So it seems gentoo actually perform better than raspbian for your rpi retrogaming needs, and the gap will probably increase with rpi2 coming out (still waiting for mine). I'll probably post a tutorial (and an img ?) when i'm finished debugging all of this.
