ASUS Tinkerboard: unable to install retroarch and emulationstation.
@E3L1 Just like on any Debian distro, using
apt -y install libgl1-mesa-dev libxcursor-dev libxi-dev libxinerama-dev libxrandr-dev libxss-dev

@E3L1 ok , just a thought.
i have not got the board yet, so i cant help.
been meaning to but have not had the chance
@mitu OK so now there installed but now I have a new problem.... when I try to start EmulationStation all I get back is;
“Error creating SDL window!
Could not initialize OpenGL / GLES library
Renderer failed to initialize!
Window failed to initialize!”
So am I missing open GL? Or is some other thing preventing it from starting?
I've not tested this for some time on the tinker board. It's possible something has happened to break it. I was considering to ditch support for the Image that comes with the tinkerboard and instead look at using Armbian as a base as it looks like it's better support. I cannot offer any advice until I have looked at this.
@BuZz on that note ive tried using armbian but it seams that only tinkeros is actually bootable on the tinkerboard.... any ideas why?
@E3L1 No - I've yet to try Armbian on the Tinker board.
@BuZz so ive been looking around, do I need to disable the desktop interface for emulationstation to work?
so got armbian to boot, the problem was that I put a paperclip through the run pinouts for tinker os, armbian dous NOT boot with them shorted.... will now try armbian install
Well I’ve managed to get everything installed and running though for some reason there is this strange audio thing happening, literally 50% of the time when starting games the audio is missing but like super predictable like start game no audio, restart same game audio, restart again no audio.... any ideas?

@E3L1 , try this:
In terminal type:
sudo nano /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf
defaults.pcm.card to 1
defaults.pcm.card to 0
Save, exit, and reboot.
