Re: RetroArch on Raspbian: the tutorial

Wed Mar 28, 2018 1:06 am

I tried using ./configure --disable-gles
It outputed :
Checking operating system ... Linux
Unknown option --disable-gles

Same thing for --disable-fbo and --disable-netplay...

Then, tried using CFLAGS
It outputed :
bash: CFLAGS: command not found

*might post again, I didnt finish the tutorial again*

Got more errors during the 2 next steps :
"DEBUG_FLAG = -g" gave me an error.

make V=1 gave me :
collect2: error: 1d returned 1 exit status
Makefile:165: recipe for taget 'retroarch' failed
make: *** [retroarch] Error 1...

I think I'm going to wait for some help until I continue.
I'm scared... what's the easiest option to start all that over?

Is there an updated version of this tutorial available?

I am interested in retroarch on raspbian without retropie.

Actually, what you have linked is for Lakka, which is a stand-alone image (not retroarch installed on top of raspian)

If anyone is reading this and want to install retroarch on top of raspian, I found a great guide here:

https://gist.github.com/AlexMax/32e5d03 ... ea75736805

You can just follow along his instructions and compile retroarch and it runs great.

Best,

From my experiment, following works for retroarch 1.8.6:

unzip source code and go in retroarch directory.

For raspberry pi 3:

CFLAGS='-mfpu=neon' ./configure --enable-alsa --enable-udev --enable-floathard --enable-neon --enable-dispmanx --disable-opengl1 --disable-x11
make
./retroarch
sudo make install

For raspberry pi 4:

CFLAGS="-mfpu=neon" ./configure --disable-opengl1 --enable-neon --enable-opengles3 --enable-opengles --disable-videocore
make
./retroarch
sudo make install

then launch retroarch.
Currently there is still tearing on raspberry pi 4.
