RetroPlayer branch of Kodi
On Ubuntu you can’t install Retroplayer cores from repos. It’s binaries addons so they must be installed with the APT repository (in the command line, sudo apt install kodi-libretro...). But right now all the packages are not available yet, they are still building them and must be online in a matter of weeks I think.

Or if you think you have the ability, an other user made a script available in the subject « compiling for linux » or something like that, it’s one of the first subject on this forum.

The thread is this:
 
It links to some install scripts:
 
Another developer has created a docker container for compiling Kodi and add-ons:

Thank you, I was on my phone and it was a bit tricky for me to provide links. Smile

Hi,
I think I'm having quite a similar problem like marcselman, but I'm also new to this and so I have to ask this explicitely:
I've installed default kodi 18 on a latest raspian stretch via apt (aptitude install kodi), I'm using IAGL too, downloading of games works, but then it says, that it can't find an emulator.
Since raspbian is kind of debian for raspberries I assume that I can only install emulators via console (with apt) and not via repo and would need to wait for packages like kodi-libretro... like yoshitslc stated.

1. Are there any other possiblities? I would like to avoid compiling directly on raspberry (RPi 3B). Perhaps here is a possibility downloading already compiled libretro-bin for raspberry from somewhere (especially SNES-emulators would be fine for now)?
2. Can I see a roadmap somewhere, when kodi-libretro-emulators will be in raspbian?

Hope that anyone of you had the same issues on raspbian like me and has managed to solve them.

Thanks!

there aren't already compiled sources of those addons for raspberry pi 3
I followed instructions on https://github.com/Wintermute0110/Kodi-Install
to compile ONLY all games-libretro* kodi addons (4 hours to compile all addons found in build-binary-addons-libretro-cores.sh)
once compiled (I followed instructions and all compiled stuff is inside /home/kodi/bin-kodi directory)
I asked myself: "and now what?"
/home/kodi/bin-kodi has 2 subdirs: lib & share
/home/kodi/bin-kodi/lib/kodi/addons/game.libretro* -> /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/kodi/addons/game.libretro* (I made a symlink for every dir)
/home/kodi/bin-kodi/share/kodi/addons/game.libretro* -> /usr/share/kodi/addons/game.libretro* (I made a symlink for every dir)
I made symlinks but You can copy all the stuff directly
emulators are visible & usable in kodi BUT the performances are very poor... SNES black screen and sound is laggy, NES is working but too much use of RAM -> pi hangs

Thanks for the instructions on where to copy the compiled files. Unfortunately I had the same outcome where games were simply unplayable on a raspberry pi 3 due to lag and crashes.

In Kodi Game setting disable "Game rewind". This should increase the performance and lower the memory consumption. Actually, I think this option must be disabled by default, does anybody use rewinding when playing games?

Please report the results.

In the meantime I installed retropie and all games works flawlessly on pi3
So it is all about optimization...
