OpenBOR 6xxx OpenBeta Testphase

  • @cyperghost said in OpenBOR 6xxx OpenBeta Testphase:

    make BUILD_PANDORA=1

    Ahh I see, so I did the clean, and then I run make BUILD_PANDORA=1 this is what I get:

    Compiling PANDORA Port: openbor.c...
    In file included from openbor.c:14:0:
    openbor.h:44:24: fatal error: version.h: No such file or directory
     #include    "version.h"

    That's why I started to look at and - I realize now that these are meant for building linux and other platforms.

  • @SinisterSpatula Please revert back and use the this patch wget

    remove the master folder and do the produce again.

  • The 4-Galina.diff also fails to patch on Hunk #4 at 572. The I'm using is from: is that right? I can try manually patching by hand again.

  • @SinisterSpatula No... Use wget This is an older version (8 month or so) and this works with patch 4 and this is the best tested so far ;) Because this is the one @julenvitoria is using.

    It could be that in newer version from DCurrent some support is dropped. So it would be fine if you report back if this is working for you.

  • @cyperghost said in OpenBOR 6xxx OpenBeta Testphase:

    make BUILD_PANDORA=1

    Thank you so much, it's patching and compiling just fine now. All my problems stemmed from using the wrong :)

  • @SinisterSpatula Not at all the wrong master file ;)
    It seems that during development phase the OpenBOR binary can't be compiled on RPi1/0 anymore. The developer team of OpenBOR removed some SDL libaries from source code. So this could be the fault.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • @cyperghost Hi again, so sorry I could use some more advice. I used the "oneliner install" to build the directories, install dependencies, place the Module Selection Script, etc. Then I overwrite the binary with the compiled one, and the compiled one. I think it's all working. However, when I launch the beta using the Selection Script, it's saying No config found for system openbor. I guess this is related to /opt/retropie/configs/SYSTEMNAME/emulators.cfg I guess my question is do I need to do the scriptmodule instead for it to setup the emulators.cfg for me? And the "oneliner" does not do that?

    I'm trying the scriptmodule method, then overwriting, now... Edit: no, still not working. I recorded all the steps I performed, in case it's helpful, to see what I'm doing wrong?

  • @SinisterSpatula said in OpenBOR 6xxx OpenBeta Testphase:

    And the "oneliner" does not do that?

    Exactly the scriptmodule sets everything up into the right place. The right place for the OpenBOR binary is located to /opt/retropie/ports/openbor
    The config is located to /opt/retropie/configs/ports/openbor/emulators.cfg

    What happens if you start the fresh compiled OpenBOR binary?
    You have to set it to executive, therefore use chmod +x OpenBOR and then start with ./OpenBOR then you should see the init screen.

  • Thanks again! I did all of this again on my pi3b+ and got a working configuration going with the Beta. I could not figure out how to map controller inputs, but I used xboxdrv as a workaround and it's running good on that system. So now I'll use the pi3b as a blueprint for what I should change on my zero. :) I want to make a guide on this to help others in our facebook group to set this up on theirs also, and it would also be very cool to explore how you did the oneliner, and see if I could make my own oneliner for them to use, or at least a build from source option (scriptmodule) like you did for pi3b.

  • @cyperghost Still trying to get this working with no success on the pi zero :( Are we sure that @julenvitoria was using Galina? Which scriptmodule do you think they used before overwriting the binaries? I was using and so everything went into /opt/retropie/ports/openbor-6xxx/ instead of /opt/retropie/ports/openbor

    If I try launching it via Emulation Station [OpenBOR - Module Selection Script] all I see in my /dev/shm/runcommand.log is:

    Executing: pushd /opt/retropie/ports/openbor-6xxx; /opt/retropie/ports/openbor-6xxx/OpenBOR ""; popd
    /opt/retropie/ports/openbor-6xxx /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/ports
    /opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/ line 1012:  6166 Illegal instruction     /opt/retropie/ports/openbor-6xxx/OpenBOR ""

    On a successful launch from my pi3b+ I see this instead, so there is a difference here:

    Executing: pushd /opt/retropie/ports/openbor-6xxx; /opt/retropie/ports/openbor-6xxx/OpenBOR "/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/ports/openbor/TMNT_RP_1_1_1.pak"; popd
    /opt/retropie/ports/openbor-6xxx ~

    Edit: Ok, I found a missing line that Pi3 had that zero didn't. I added it to the zero's emulator's config, and now the executed command looks the same for both, but the zero still gives the "illegal instruction".
    The missing line was:

    openbor = "pushd /opt/retropie/ports/openbor; /opt/retropie/ports/openbor/OpenBOR; popd"

    If I try launching it from CLI [sudo ./OpenBOR] I see this:

    Edit: I've tried Galina, I've tried Dmitri, both give me illegal instruction error. Even fresh off the compiler, just doing ./OpenBOR
    I thought maybe it was because I was sending video over GPIO pins (Retroflag Gpi case) so I tried taking it out of the case, removing the GPIO video settings, hooked up to TV with HDMI, still same "illegal instruction". Not sure what else I can try.

    Edit: Looks like this might be a problem with my particular retropie image. Another friend was able to compile and launch Anna on zero using a different image. So right now I'm also trying Anna and if that fails, it has to be my image.

    Edit: Anna failed "illegal instruction" so this has to be a problem with my image, no doubt about it.

  • @SinisterSpatula Please rename or delete GL4ES.

  • I tried a fresh 4.4 image and got the same results. I'm really stuck and not understanding why I keep getting this Illegal Instruction error. Only thing I can think of is a problem with my OpenGL libraries, or the binary itself that is getting compiled is not compatible with pi zero? Or I'm still doing something else wrong.

    Edit: Just deleted tried ./OpenBOR and still illegal instruction.

  • @SinisterSpatula hmmm.... what is the result of ldd OpenBOR?
    I'm really just guessing now. I never compiled this on a RPi1/0

    illegal instruction is usually 99% caused by providing RPi incompatible packages

  • I think you're right, because I just followed the exact same steps on my Pi3 that I'm doing on my pi zero, and it worked perfectly, no error, brought up the BOR gui menu. So I must be compiling for pi3 still, somehow?
    Here's the output of ldd OpenBOR on my zero:

  • @SinisterSpatula sorry!
    Posted wrong. It looks all fine!
    @mitu Can you help here please?

  • Sorry I'm sure this is a dumb question, but where or how do I get that installed or placed where needed? :) Still learning. Oh ok. Back to the drawing board I guess lol. I'm going to try a different image for the zero and see if I have better luck.

  • @SinisterSpatula I posted wrong! Sorry! I've tagged mitu. I think he can help

  • @SinisterSpatula Moment .... what image did you use? A preinstalled one?

  • @cyperghost Most recently I used a stock image: retropie-4.4-rpi1_zero.img which should be stock standard, nothing but enabling ssh, samba, I did a fake-hw-clock to stop the system file checks on every boot, I installed xboxdrv (I like to use that for gamepad remapping to keyboard keys. That's all I've done I'm pretty sure.

  • @SinisterSpatula Okay then wait for an answer from mitu. I think he can help
