Batocera.linux emulation station

Has anyone booted this? I’ve had no luck with the generic s905x version - even with a kvim dtb.

Err, because people want to use whatever distro they want !! … The Odroid C2 image will probably run fine on a VIM1 as long as the device-tree is available. GXBB and GXL devices have a lot in common hardware-wise.

  1. sometimes people dont know about already existing systems

Thank you - I tried the distros you mentioned but found emuelec to be a bit too buggy especially with my Bluetooth controller.

Batocera seems to have lots of nice features if it would boot on kvim 1
