Hi, I purchased ODROID XU4 , a 64 -bit Octa Core SOC with Debian 8.0 installed . I would try to change your scripts so that they are compatible with Odroid . Raspi – config will be replaced with ODROID setup . The purely designed to RaspberryPI , where possible , will be replaced with the proper information , otherwise they will be eliminated from the Retropie Menu. Before proceeding I would like to have your opinion . If so I will share on sourceforge otherwise , if not, I will keep for myself the work done . I need to know , before going to ‘work , if Retropie works in a Frame Buffer mode or requires the X server to function properly . Thank you :)gizmo98Participant10/23/2015 at 07:39Post count: 452
Use github and fork retropie-setup. Modify https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/blob/master/scriptmodules/system.sh. Add a platform for ux4 and try to use something like ‘if ux4 ,then…’ in modules. Then start retropie setup with ‘__platform=ux4 ./retropie_setup.sh’.efraimsangilParticipant01/31/2016 at 16:32Post count: 51
I have ODROID XU4 too and I am very interested to have Retropie with emulationStation :)
I will try the gizmo98 suggestion :)

I think the XU4 needs a different fbdev driver, and it looks as though it isn’t packaged (yet) as it is for the odroid-c1
you could manually install it
and then remove the dependency for the fbdev-mali package – this is going to require development knowledge though – unless you just built things for running under X11
(__platform=generic-x11)petrockblogKeymaster01/31/2016 at 21:35Post count: 1827
This is really going to require a developer with this board to contribute to RetroPie-Setup to get it properly working though really.efraimsangilParticipant02/01/2016 at 11:26Post count: 51
Yes, I am agree with you, Buzz. In odroid forum, the users are using EmulationStation under X11 but I think that this solution it’s not better. I think the better option it’s run Retropie without X11 because… –> Best performance :)
I’ll make more testing :)devil78Participant02/01/2016 at 12:26Post count: 37
You CAN install X11 and launch EmulationStation with
xinit emulationstationi use this command to launch Attract Mode, wich require Xorg, from EmulationStation in Retropie on Raspberry pi 2.efraimsangilParticipant02/01/2016 at 12:31Post count: 51

What linux distro? May be you need to install the mali driver…efraimsangilParticipant02/01/2016 at 12:57Post count: 51

I think mali driver is needed for SDL

I try with other distribution…
I make some changes to prevent start X11:
root@gamestation-turbo:~# cat /etc/X11/default-display-manager # /usr/sbin/lightdm
And changes in inittab
# /etc/inittab: init(8) configuration. # $Id: inittab,v 1.91 2002/01/25 13:35:21 miquels Exp $ # The default runlevel. id:2:initdefault:
Then I try with:

I would start with their officially supported os (ubuntu). Might include the mali fbdev package also as with the odroid c1efraimsangilParticipant02/01/2016 at 17:52Post count: 51herbfargusMember02/01/2016 at 18:32Post count: 1858
