I would like to describe ideas about a possible organization of the RetroPie components into several Debian packages.
First of all I would like to give an overview about the current organization of the components:
The Question is how to organize the Debian packages. Would it be a good idea to follow the current organization which would then lead to the following list of packages?
In addition, there could be a wrapper package that would install all packages from above.
What do you think?nstensenParticipant03/06/2014 at 13:27Post count: 1
I believe the software should be split into way smaller packages. Maybe one for the core system, then one package for each of the emulators etc. Then create RetroPie-Full/-Minimal bundle packages :) Much more bandwidth friendly. Why download everything if only one small emulator core has changed? Then create “wrapper” packages. ‘retropie-full’, ‘retropie-minimal’ etc.petrockblogKeymaster03/09/2014 at 09:59Post count: 1827
I agree to the idea to have packages that contain individual components like single emulators, cores etc.roquenParticipant03/20/2014 at 15:10Post count: 69
I agree, is it possible to merge all the binaries into /usr/bin or somewhere appropriate for the system?
I am a fan of the BSNES concept of an individual folder/package for each ROM that contains all of the stuff for that rom (screenshots, and everything)
I know this is a shift in emulation convention, so thats a tough one, but I like the /usr/bin idea for the system package management integration for upgrades.
