It's called a BANANA PI, why would anyone think it's in any way compatible with RASPBERRY PI?|
In your previous reply you said I could compile emulationstation and retroarch myself from scratch.
As I've already said, I did this already, and although it compiles correctly it doesn't run.
I was prepared to compile ES, retroarch and all of the emulators and configure it. I didn't expect an out of the box solution.
I do not agree there is nothing to say.
I did expect at least some pointers as to why it doesn't work.
I think my question is valid,
If I compile on a BananaPi using a src that is supposed to run on Debian, ( NOT RPI), why is it compiling RPI specific code?. ES is opensource and not specific to RPI.
I accept I am not the target audience for your blog, ie intermediate/advanced. Just a beginner with Linux.
I bought the Bananapi from Amazon, I will return it and review it.
Not compatible with R-PI even though the name implies it is. can install apps from PI- store but probably won't work. Only suitable for intermediate/advanced users, because of little support from manufacture or community.
