Batocera Beta

I saw a post on Reddit that there is Beta of Batocera for the VF2.
I wrote the image to a micro SD card, and I have to say I’m surprised in a good way.


Can you try any 3D game?

Is the driver working or is it using softpipe?

We are using currently the old vendored Mesa patched by IMG, it’s 3D accelerated.
But starfive-6.6-devel kernel once ready + Mesa 24.1 or Mesa 24.2-devel + Zink + a couple of patches is coming around the corner.


Neat, do you know how we could use the same trick with the official debian?

What is the timeline for the upstream release?

Probably armbian is on par with what is implemented in batocera original risc-v port for the JH7110.
I am currently adding more RISC-V boards (SpacemiT K1 and T-Head 1520 as soon as I am able to get my hands on some boards) in a separate unannounced FOSS project.

I literally just watched this video and just ordered a visionfive2 starter kit


Hello LivingLinux,Batocera is very good。
(My English is not good, the following content is machine translated)
I encountered a problem while using Batocera,I am not familiar with Batocera-Linux,I would like to ask for your help。
In order to reduce repeated replacement of TF,I’m trying,Batocera + VisionFive 2 Debian 202405 ,All installed on one TF,multiboot。
Insufficient ROOT permissions for Batocera-Linux,Batocera-Linux does not have sudo installed,Do you know how to increase the root privileges of Batocera-Linux?
Please look to the screenshot:

What I found is that they recommend connecting with ssh with another computer.
Login as root and you should have all the needed rights, without sudo.
pw: linux

hi, LivingLinux ,Thank you very much for your reply :grinning:
(The following is machine translation)
The article you recommended,I just looked at it briefly,I guess it didn’t solve my problem。The article introduces the operation of the /userdata partition,however,It is invalid for /boot operations,The ‘root‘ account may have insufficient permissions。
Thank you again for your reply, I will carefully read the article you recommended again,Or find another solution。
Thank you!

LivingLinux, Thanks!
Under your reminder,I am on the official website of Batoceta, Found a solution and tested successfully,It is also possible to operate locally。
