RetroPie? Lakka?
#1
Hey, guys.

I found an information from RetroPie's forum!!
https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/7524/asus-tinker-board/

Lakka looks like a different Retro Game Console system provider.
And they are trying to build their distribution for Tinker Board!!

But I do not have a pure Linux OS can build it.
Can anyone help to build the Image?
Thank a lot~~

This is very exciting!

I flashed your image to two different cards with Etcher and got the boot splash but then it only booted to shell. I started retroarch manually but then couldn't load or download any cores. I can download content, which I guess is just homebrew, but couldn't play any of it even though I tried scanning several files and directories. Also, the menu images seem to be missing.

I'll try downloading again. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

It looked like overlayFS not enabled.
https://github.com/libretro/Lakka-LibreELEC/issues/136

Then...I found this https://github.com/libretro/Lakka-LibreELEC/blob/439a28c608a2d094ca7d0fa81ac16fa0bd216b5c/packages/libretro/retroarch/package.mk#L194
And after I tried for a long time...the "icon missed" & "font missed" issue can be fixed by below steps:

enable overlayFS:

Step1: change folder
Code:
cd /usr/lib/systemd/system/

Step2: enable & mount the overlay FS
Code:
systemctl start tmp-cores.mount
systemctl start tmp-joypads.mount
systemctl start tmp-database.mount
systemctl start tmp-assets.mount
systemctl start tmp-shaders.mount

or enable them by one command line
Code:
systemctl start tmp-*.mount

Step3: start RetroArch
Code:
retroarch

Try it.

HA! Thanks a ton, but way to bury the lede!

I would've tried it sooner if I thought it was going to do more than give me icons!

I believe this is a later build and the icons work out of the box. I've used it a fair bit and it's pretty stable.

Mikerr, you may want to update the OS images with this link instead.
