the command to lauch the retroarch is spot on, i can now load any core i want :)

the tearing thing is really a show stopper for me atm. l have a pi 3 that is playing ok, but was wanting more power. thought i could i use my xu4 but i cant use it with the tearing. I hope it can be fixed as it would be perfect otherwise.

Cool!

I agree with you about the tearing, it's very frustrating and it almost kills all the interest of buying an XU4.
But in a way you are lucky, because a few months ago we were all still dealing with another big issue that we called the "black screen issue", basically almost every-time you were exiting a fullscreen application, the XU4 was freezing with a black screen and you had to restart it ! And I think this bug was there since the XU3 release date (during 2014)!!! At least this bug is fixed now, hopefully the tearing issue will be fixed soon too. ;)

Fingers crossed!

For now I've moved onto lakka on the xu4, no tearing, just not so much of a fan of the frontend.

I know the thread says ODroid XU3/XU4 but has anyone managed to compile the source for the C2.

For me I can get as far as linking attract but it complains about the *OES methods not resolvable by the SFML library and, from what I can tell the OpenGLES library for the C2 doesn't support these methods..

anyone managed to get it to work?

The reason I ask is that although the PPA package works on the platform as soon as you introduce videos the application grinds to a halt so I figured the issue would be due to the Video Decoder options and I've been trying to recompile it to see if it'll make any difference.

if I uses ffplay to play back the intro file it's smooth as butter.
if attract mode plays it back it looks like I'm watching it on a 1992 14k modem connection :/

Any advice here would be awesome.

I have tried compiling with and without the patches, to no avail. Has anyone tried it recently and gotten it to work? I would appreciate some guidance.
Thanks,
