LE8 "Remix" (Generic/RPi) Emulationstation/Chrome/Spotify (read the first post before posting)

  • I just installed on an x86-64 system and chrome crashed right after I signed in and now it crashes every time I launch it - any idea what it could be?

  • Hi

    TVHEADEND are not working.

    Need to fix using:

    1. mkdir -p /storage/.kodi/addons/service.tvheadend42/lib
    2. ln -s /usr/lib/libva.so /storage/.kodi/addons/service.tvheadend42/lib/libva.so.1
    3. ln -s /usr/lib/libva-drm.so /storage/.kodi/addons/service.tvheadend42/lib/libva-drm.so.1
    4. ln -s /usr/lib/libva-x11.so /storage/.kodi/addons/service.tvheadend42/lib/libva-x11.so.1

      Try fix it in your builds

      Thanks for @5schatten, to share that info ;)

      I can't have sound on chrome.
      Need some addicional config?

      Thanks @escalade for that great work;)

    You need to apply this patch Update config entries pointer to the new beginning of the list after … · libretro/[email protected] · GitHub to make sure RA creates a valid retroarch.cfg. I had the same problem, until you patch RA it uses default values for retroarch.cfg uses that point to wrong directories, sets wrong drivers and stuff. I stumbled upon it after I made a clean install... otherwise you probably won't face that problem.

    That's right, same problem after a clean install of generic build

    I have another problem with generic/nvidia build, fonts or dpi render too big for external programs like dolphin or pcsx2 and can't access options

    is there a way to change settings of fluxbox or xorg for that ?

  • escalade , a moment of your time?

    i was able to modify emulator-frontend.conf so i can pass arguments to emulator-frontend.sh and open the frontend i want (eg. "emulator-frontend.sh ra" for retroarch "es" for emulationstation) like so:

    however /usr/bin/emulator-frontend.py is not set up to pass commandline args to /usr/bin/emulator-frontend.sh
    my goal here was to create buttons in Aeon Nox for each frontend so i can set up controllers that dont autoconfgig, etc without another computer (im using generic not arm) and im unable to do so without using emulator-frontend.py, i cant launch systemd-run _script_ in a button apparantly, so as a workaround i copied e-f.py to .storage and modified it like so:

    1. #!/usr/bin/python
    2. import subprocess, sys
    3. subprocess.call(["systemd-run", "/usr/bin/emulator-frontend.sh"] + sys.argv[1:])

    i was just wondering if in your next build and/or in the 9.0 beta builds you could make a simple change to emulator-frontend.py to pass at least one argument to emulator-frontend.sh as it allows for argument parsing in emulator-frontend.conf. if you know of a more elagant way than my modification to the python script i encorage you to use that instead. i am not proud of how im handling arguments

    ok now im proud

    Just skip the emulator-frontend.conf create a second start script/one for each frontend and create a second python script and link each script to a button. If you need RA then click the RA button if you want to run ES then the ES one or whats the purpose of passing args to that file?

    ALSA should work in 100% of cases, which is why creating an asound.conf should be all that's needed. The latest generic build might have the bug mentioned by 5schatten though which leads to a corrupted retroarch.cfg. Not sure, but I'll do a rebuild soon and upload that. My latest avx2 build is updated though if you have a CPU not from the stone age.


    You need asound.conf.


    Tell me what to change in the python code to accept arguments and I'll modify it. As 5schatten points out, there's nothing stopping you from creating your own scripts to use with launchers etc as well.

    Well I was wondering if you use fluidsynth for midi sound? I played a bit with it but running into problems when using it with SDL because the alsa device is already in use then. Does your DOSBox work with fluidsynth midi + SDL effect sound?
