looks like you might have already changed the config.. maybe before you started using the yabause-xbmc command.
My guess the Graphics drivers are no longer correctly configured.

You may have to reinstall the setup-ogst-odroid package and hope it fixes the changes you did.. but it might also revert changes on other things like Rom Collection browser or that kind that you already done.
You can also try fixing the configs manually.. all configs should be found somewhere unter /usr/local/share/setup-ogst/ in there you should find the templates for yabause... but I think you have to fix paths for the user and then copy the files to ~/.config/yabause/qt/

About the games you tried:
Sonic R -> forget about it. Even if it starts the graphics are terrible.. It's one of the hardest games to emulate, and is a known issue for years
Guardian Heroes -> works, but only until the end of the second level, then it freezes :(
Sonic Jam -> no clue need to check on that
Panzer Dragoon 2 Zwei -> should work, but not very good, 3D games are not the best on yabause and it might be rather laggy
Night Into Dreams -> works, but once again: mostly 3D and doesn't work that well..

There are already a couple of articles in the ODROID magazine about my favorite Sega Saturn games on the XU4, there are quite a lot.
Maybe you find some you like in these article as well.

EDIT... i got it to work now, i just did a fresh load on a spare card and just pulled the config file off of that one.
tried Mega Man 8. this time i see the logo and i get a message about setting up the memory card. but it is starting.
the screen is also really tiny, but that is just a setting i think. i will mess with that tomorrow. but it works. :)

Currently EmulationStation does NOT support different languages, although recently there is some development going on that may lead to translated UI, but most likely not translated scrapper informations.

currently there's no "select" it's something that I might need to implement.
First you have to make sure the correct core is installed:
all cores can be installed with apt-get install libretro-<core-name> for example apt-get install libretro-mame2000.
You could edit the file /usr/local/bin/mame-libretro and write the name of the file inside that you want to use.
Or copy the files and create new files if you want to start them manually from terminal.

Hi All,

I have an Odroid XU4 in a Cloudshell, with a 1TB 2.5" Mushkin Triactor SSD

I've tried over and over but cannot get the OGST to boot after following the guide on the front page and going into "Setup Odroid Gamestation" and doing the "move rootfs to hdd."

The "move to rootfs to hdd" succeeds, so upon exiting this utility, it asks to reboot. When it reboots, the system gets stuck at:

systemd-udevd[144]: starting version 215

I've tried it with two different SATA SSDs, the first one was a WD BLUE PC SSD 2.5" 500GB, I even checked to make sure the USB 3.0 connection was making good contact and has USB 3.0 speed (the cotton swab cleaning) and doing lsusb -t to verify the speed (has 5000M next to it, which I'm assuming USB 3.0's 5 Gb/sec spec).

Here is how I set up my Odroid XU4 and OGST image:

1) SD Card formatter to wipe the SD Card, SD card is Sandisk Ultra 32GB, HC I, A1 (The Samsung EVO and EVO+ cards I had would not work, it would freeze the OGST on the Desktop)
2) Use Ether and write the OGST image onto SD Card
3) Prepare the 2.5" SATA SSD by connecting the SATA to USB bridge to my PC (Windows 10), using Mini-Tools Partition Wizard, I delete the partition from the SSD, create an EXT4 partition, full span


Loading:

1) Wait for the system to reboot after the initial boot (as the guide states on the first page of this thread).
2) After rebooting, I exit out of Kodi (hit or miss, if Kodi runs for a while, Kodi crashes on exit).
3) Do my su -, apt-get upgrade/update/dist-upgrade until completion
4) reboot
5) exit Kodi again
6) open console to change read/write permission on the SSD (it shows up on the desktop and it is mounted into /media/ordroid/), command I use on it is the good ole "sudo chmod 777" command
7) Proceed to click on the "Setup Gamestation for Odroid" utility where the last item on the menu is the "move rootfs to hdd"
8) The utility asks to move rootfs to either on /dev/sda or /dev/sda1 - I tried both, cannot move to /dev/sda, so I choose /dev/sda1
9) The utility proceeds to copy everything over
10) After finishing, I exit, asks for reboot, I comply, and let the system reboot
11) System hangs at "systemd-udevd[144]: starting version 215"

Any help would be appreciated. My goal is to move the rootfs to the SSD for performance, and I would also appreciate it if anyone can give or point me to a howto for resizing the rootfs to take up the entire disk as I'm not planning on making a separate partition for swap and etc.

There is an issue with the script that moves the rootfs to the harddrive.
If the harddrive already holds a partition it's normally auto-mounted under /media/odroid/ and when I try to overwrite it it fails cause it's already mounted.

I've already fixed this and will upload a new script today which now will first unmount the partition and then try to convert it.
It will also give more feedback in case something goes wrong.

Hi meveric,

Thanks for looking into this, I really appreciate it. Do I just do a "sudo apt-get update" to pull this new script into the OGST?

Code: Select all
su -
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade

after that you should have the new script.
Please let me know if you encounter more issues.

en fait j'essaie de comprendre l'ensemble, mais le tuto n'est pas très récent, j'ai réussi a passer debian en français, je fais les mises a jour avec les commandes sudo get-apt mais ensuite je rame sur la compréhension du reste. Je ne sais pas comment faire pour me connecter en SSH car mon pc ne voit pas l'odroid et y mettre les roms. Pour info je suis habitué a recalbox sur raspberry pi 3. J'ai tout recommencé depuis le début en essayant de suive une vidéo et je vais voir ce que ça donne, car pas habitué a xbmc ni a l'autre front end, j'ai réussi a entrer dans emulstation mais il est bizarre et peu d'options comme l’impossibilité de le mettre en français. comme j'ai dit, j'ai refais une installation propre et là je refais les étapes.

I've tried flashing the 2 images in the first post on a variety of microSD cards along with my eMMC, each time the system powers off after a few minutes saying that it got too hot, claiming 160,C

I've run other images and have had no issues with heat. I've tried some of them today as well and there were no thermal issues

as this is a gaming image, the cpu governor is running on performance mode by default.
This is normally not an issue for the board, but it CAN be an issue if you're using an XU4Q (passively cooled) and using a closed plastic case such as the XU4 default case or the OGST Gaming kit.. these cases are not very thermal friendly and passive cooling can run too hot.
Although I've never seen 160°C... the board throttles if it reaches 95°C and will shutoff at "a hundred something" maybe 105 or 110 or so.
