Pi B / Archlinux - GearBoy: White screen

Mon May 18, 2015 7:47 am


I have problem with GearBoy on my Raspberry Pi. I use Archlinux, I compile successfully the project:

Code: Select all

git clone
cd Gearboy/platforms/raspberrypi/Gearboy
I'have the binary, but all my games gbc are broken with a white screen.

Code: Select all

./gearboy.bin ~/myGame.gbc
Have you an idea ?

Thank you.

Hi, I'm the author of Gearboy.

It looks like an issue with OpenGL and video surfaces. I'm using DISPMANX to initialize all the things. Something may not initialize properly in Archlinux.

You could try compiling the generic Linux version or use Raspbian as the emulator is intended for it.

Also, make sure you are using the right version for Pi 1 and Pi 2.
