RPCEmu on RPi

Mon Oct 16, 2017 8:26 pm

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to get RPCEmu running Riscos 3.1 on my RPi but having downloaded the Ubuntu source and installed the liballegro lib and tried to run the configure before make - it reports "checking for CPU... configure: error: Unsupported CPU." - Before I start chasing my tail - am I trying to compile the wrong thing?

Cheers,

Mark

Ok - found out who the numpty is - myself :) - lesson of the day - when configuring the build or RPCEmu for RPi do not include the --enable-dynarec option - obvious really :D

I now have ArcVenture running on Raspberry Pi! Yay! ... no seriously ... YAY!

Why are you emulating RiscOS (I assume running on Raspbian?) when the true RiscOS also runs on the RPI?

Unfortunately tests of the old software have not been successful on modern RISCOS - 16bit modules and screen modes being the main problems.

16bit modules
With Aemulor (soon free on the Pi), it should not be a problem.
and screen modes being the main problems
That's very easy to add custom modes on the Pi.

I assume you mean software that uses 26 bit R15, that is the only addressing change that has come to pass in 32 bit ARM.

You can run most of the older software on native RISC OS using Aemulator:

26-Bit R15 to 32-bit. 16-bit addressing to 24-bit. ARM and 65xx two CPU's that continue on, and are better than ever. Assembly Language forever :) .

Return to “RISCOS”
