PCSX2 on Debian 9 Stretch?



  • Hello everybody,

    I'm trying to use my Debian Server as a RetroPie, all goes well until I try to install the experimental packages.. Some don't work, that's fine, but I would love to be able to use the PS2 emulator.

    The thing is, when I try to install PCSX2 from the RetroPie Setup experimental packages it start and then it says:
    Unable to locate package

    Is there anything I can do to fix that?
    Because I can't seem to find where it's trying to get the package from..

    I hope someone can help! =)
    Thanks in advance!
    Thursten

    @Edit Since I wasn't very clear before, It is installed on a 64bit Debian Server.
    So it's NOT on the Raspberry Pi! 0=)



  • I think it's a waste of effort regardless. My i5 at 2.4 GHz can't even play PS2 games without horrible slowdown, so I seriously doubt the pi can output something decent.



  • Ooh I'm sorry I think I wasn't clear enough.. I'm using my 64bit Debian Server.
    So it isn't on my Pi it is a pretty decent PC though! =)



  • Is the server connected to the internet...? (you never know)

    We don't build PCSX2 from source - just try to install via apt-get. However PCSX2 is not packaged in Debian. You would need to use Ubuntu or compile manually.



  • Okay! Thanks very much, I indeed noticed it only could be installed from binaries! So I'll try that!
    If I install it through that will I be able to use it through the EmulationStation?
    Is there any documentation? I've something about configuration file editting..
