Hey new PI user gotta say the possibility and technology is pretty awesome. I am no tech slouch i make my living in the IT world and I am an experienced linux user just no expert. I am looking to use this around my home for multiple purposes to save energy cost, cooling costs, no need to carry my laptop or PC around to each TV and plug it in etc more of a dummy terminal for the following.
KODI for the streaming of Music and Movies across my networking
Retro-Pie for my emulation of old games
Raspbian for surfing the web, checking email, installing steam and perhaps streaming some games from my main PC through steam.
OR perhaps just install a steam-os paltform for streaming from my main rig to this device.
So it would be great if I could just put all of this onto one OS Raspbian and do/boot into everything I want from there. However that doesn't seem very simple and I see many tutorials that do not work or are outdated. All the searching I have done has just concluded that its simpler to install each OS or service I want as its own stand-alone OS and use a dual/multiple booter to choose which one to run at launch.
This means Noobs 1.3.10 or BerryBoot, but if there where some good solid instructions on how to install, Steam, KODI & Retro-Pie in Raspbian I would be interested but they all again seem very lacking. So back to the multiple boot path resolution.
I can dual boot Raspbian and Kodi off of Noobs 1.3.10 without an issue...
How do I install and include Retro-Pie in a TRI-Boot list? It seems both BerryBoot & Noobs doesn't have Retro-Pie in the OS install list, I am currently using Noobs Lite, haven't played with Berry Boot just yet but saw the install list.
Can I install it on a separate SD take those files and move them into the SD with the dual boot and edit the config to include it somehow?
Or not use the Noobs lite but use the full version and include the image file there and it will show up in the install list or edit a config to have it show up in the install list?
I am looking for some guidance and instruction here so I do not spend a ton of hours of trying and failing when I know someone has already figured out what I am trying to do here.
Lastly I know I could always just make a separate SD card for each OS and change them out each time, that just seems really bad and such a little card floating around is likely to become lost.
Thanks In Advance
