Comment on RetroPie by Red https://jwills.co.uk/projects/retropie/#comment-299 Wed, 31 May 2017 20:01:46 +0000 https://jwills.co.uk/?page_id=382#comment-299 Wow RetroPie is amazing. Best part is I no longer have to hunt for physical copies of various systems.

No idea what to call this, not a complaint, but a personal….issue with rpi. Will look elsewhere more fitting to post the following- running rpie on ubuntu 16 lts, and after fighting physical conections from laptop to tv, was ready to play on the big screen. Menu is good and works in mirror screen setting.

Problem deals with launching a game. On the laptop screen everything is great, on the tv tge game isn’t full screen and behind it has a terminal background that flickers. Actually i’d compare it to strobe.

No clue on what command to enter and searching the internets results in nothing. Results are about rasbery Pi or flashing screen of the OS itself, nothing about rpie itself.

Would attempt to uninstall and reinstall, attempted both through terminal and in app page. Won’t uninstall.

Also might be defined as personal. Using a xbox 360 controller, unable to use left joystick as i would the dpad.

Still fail to get over that rpie does so much.

I don’t have the kernels packaged on the PPA, so you will have to wait till a new release (or build your own).

I’ve seen a few generic guides but it’s not clear to me how I could apply them to a ‘custom’ kernel like yours. I’m currently on 3.2.69joggler1.
Thanks!

It seems completely random, I can go ages without it happening, then it gets to the point as to make listening to music unbearable. Any ideas? My music is stored on my NAS, and with the old XBMC build (http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=138842) audio streams absolutely fine, but it is an old build and I’d prefer to be using yours.

You can use some visualisations in Kodi if that’s what you mean ? You can further get help with Xubuntu on the O2 joggler via the joggerwiki forum – http://www.jogglerwiki.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=2 – Cheers.

It’s very dim for me. I tried adjusting via both he gui slider and manually using /sys interface.

Was fine on previous kernel I had (I think that was 3.2.58).

I have actually not used the new image, rather built the kernel from source as I needed to enable a couple of other options, but other than that it is as downloaded from github.

have all the dkms modules built and loaded too, tho don’t think are relevant to this.

Telnet is not enabled – you need to use ssh. eg something like PuTTY if using Windows – http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

you could use a standard 3.2.x kernel – most of our patches are Joggler specific (backlight control / audio etc).

Joggler kernel is on github – https://github.com/joolswills/linux/tree/joggler-v3.2

Includes the kernel .config

I disabled a lot of stuff that isn’t needed on the Joggler although sata was recently enabled but miss out the drivers you need. Wireless is included though – perhaps your card is missing, or you need a 3rd party driver.

I have a gma500 based laptop (sony vaio P) that I have struggled to get working with Linux. Currently I have two installs, one of xubuntu 14.04 with EMGD where video acceleration and video out don’t work (but 3D acceleration does) and one of xubuntu 14.04 with the open source drivers where video out works but there is only 2D acceleration (but not very good 2D acceleration).

I tried booting up your 12.04 image for the joggler and WOW – I have working 720p video playback! But due to your custom kernel it can’t see my wireless card, or even my hard drives, and I think it has no power management support as well?

Can I just install a standard 3.2.74 kernel and modules to make everything work properly? Or will this break video support? If not could you share your kernel config/build instructions? Do you know what is disabled that has prevented my hard disks working? Cheers!

Thanks. Glad it was of use – I wrote the article some years ago – I should probably do some updates, as I have probably changed stuff since this was written. I’ll take a look at your module – cheers.
