Something slightly more than "if you wanna hack, run the script and you know what to do?" pretty please? :lol:

Reason I ask is that I would love to have recalboxOS on top of raspbian and Desktop :D
Do you mean instructions like that ? :)

YES!!!!!! that is awesome, thanks! Don't know why I couldn't find that link before :p
Will try it tonight, +8 GMT :D

Also, tried the latest image, and doesn't seem to be booting (not even the rainbow screen) after I copied it to my micro SD Card on RPi 2. Tried the same files on my normal SD Card on RPi 1, and everything works and installs fine. Not sure what's the problem.

I see. Oh and I found the culprit - It's in the config.txt.

I wanted to download 3.2.4 on my normal PC, while running 3.2.3 on my Pi 1. Then a menu pops out, saying update available. Damn man, that's awesome! I thought. Then I realised that I could update directly via emulationstation itself. DOUBLE AWESOME! :lol:

It's always those little things that makes life wonderful, you know? :lol: :lol: :lol: Cheers for the awesome work!

Just a small request: under UPDATE menu, if it can show the current IP, that would be TRIPLE AWESOME :D

Okay so I like the new full-package Kodi, PVR works now.

but here's a problem. two problems technically.

1. IsraeLIVE video addon doesn't work. I wanna give you a Kodi crash log, but
2. SSH doesn't work. Normally I can just use WinSCP and browse to the kodi log folder, but in this case I can't.

just FYI, I use Kodi + IsraeLIVE video addon + IPTV Simple PVR addon most of the time. IsraeLIVE will organize the channels' name, updated url, logo and EPG of live tv & radio streaming channels every few hours inside IPTV Simple's settings. But that doesn't work for some reason, error says "could not load settings".

Ok ssh doesn't work because of no network ?
Do you have the recalbox on your network ?
Else use a usb keyboard "F4" to quit emulationstation then ALT+F2 to get a prompt, connect through ssh "root" "recalboxroot"
ifconfig and tell me if you have an ip.
cat /root/.kodi/temp/kodi.log

my mistake, sorry! SSH works... I'm trying a bunch of RPi images at the same time, and I got mixed up with the SSH issue between someone else's image/script and with your image :D Sorry again!

SSH does work. From Kodi logs, I believe the issue here is with the python script.

Re: recalboxOS - emulation platform for RPi and RPi2

Thu Feb 26, 2015 1:34 pm

No :shock:

I have a Micro SanDisk Ultra 64GB SDXC that is in a sandisk Micro to SD adapter and every time i try to use SDFormatter it tells me that it is not supported. I have tried with the same hardware in two different machines with SDFormatter to no avail. I also tried using windows built in formatting tool and it only gives me the option to format in exFAT which will not work as you obviously know because of the two FAT32 partitions. Any suggestions ?

Also once I have Recalbox loaded I do not see all the emulators listed under the Emulation section here : https://github.com/digitalLumberjack/re ... d-%28EN%29

Do the additional ones need loaded or did I miss something ?

Thanks again for all the help.

I'm using the exact same card with no issues. What exactly is "not supported" in your case?

As ssl works with Youtube addon, it seems that SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED come from a bad certificate from the server.
Your youtube addon is ok ?

If you have no games in rom directory for a system, you won't see the system in emulationstation.

Yeah okay, no probs.
But just to be sure, I just tried it again.
1. run kodi
2. open kodi, run Youtube addon
3. search > russian drivers :lol:
4. pick a video randomly, and play.

No issues there. IsraeLIVE works with OpenELEC image, and RetroPie image.

Also when you try to scrape, and click on INPUT, the text box in SEARCH FOR dialog box does not display the filename from the beginning. Like say, if the rom filename is [abcde fghij klm.romext] the dialog box will display the text [hij klm]. Filename is still correct, but you have to scroll all the way to the left to see the whole rom filename. Hope it makes sense!

Doesn't Fat32 have a 32GB Limit for a partition?

Yes..... for Windows. Which is why you need to use external tools like sd card organization's SD Formatter to format it to more than 32GB limit (or whatever limit there is in Windows), and make sure Format Size Adjustment is turned ON not OFF (default).

I tried my NES30 via USB successfully. But after a while if I don't use the controller, it "sleeps" and I have to unplug and replug it in again.
Never using bluetooth as my bluetooth dongle is faulty..... maybe later. But it should pair like any other bluetooth device.

Hello,
Is it possible to use recalboxOS with berryboot? http://www.berryterminal.com/doku.php/berryboot

Operation systems must be in Squash - format with berryboot. Here is tutorial how to do it with normal .Img-file:

For now I am using Fedora, Rasbian, OpenELEC and Retropie with my 32gb memory card, good! RecalboxOS would be awesome addon to my system ;-)

If somebody who understand linux better than me, could write tutorial or give me some hints how to use recalboxOS with berryboot, would make me very happy :-)

Thank you!

Hi DigitalLumberjack, you are really doing an amazing work. The only reason why I'm not using your os as my default system yet is the lack of TP-Link TL-WN725N Wifi dongle drivers. Or at least I didn't succeed to make it work. After that it would be perfect :D
In the next days I'll maybe work on an Italian localization for you unless someone has not already done that. I believe in your project ;)
Keep up the good work!

Any help is much appreciated. I recently switched laptops and cannot get my sd card to format to full capacity with win 7. I've tried windows format tool, fdisk, formatdisk, windows disk manager, sd formatter and some other random format tools. I can only see 292mb of my 16gb card.

On the previous laptop, sd formatter worked fine using full overwrite and format size adjustment on . I'm at a loss here and really want to try the new recalbox!

Hey man,

I've been trying to find how to get qt5-default qttools5-dev-tools on my Pi 2 :cry:

Help please? sudo apt-get install qt5-default qttools5-dev-tools resulted in "unable to locate package" error.

You try to compile the system on a rpi2 ? Might be a pain... You should use an ubuntu on a real PC...

Those controllers are great, I can confirm they work only with USB cable at the moment with recalbox, and I think they worked wireless on retropie before.

that goes beyond my scope of learning & knowledge for the time being, and i've my hands full at the moment :lol: i have a badass pc with 3 monitors running Steam games and browser and putty & winscp sessions all at the same time for the past 1+ year, don't think i wanna restart my pc now :lol:

whenever I stop playing (and buying) games, that's when I learn to setup cross compiling on my pc & install ubuntu on top of win7+beos+osx86 :lol:
