2016-07-10 11:42
NeoTheFox has ported Gmu 0.9.1 to the PocketCHIP. The PocketCHIP is a handheld computer based on the C.H.I.P. single board computer. It is an ARM-based device primarily meant to play retro games. I haven't tried it myself yet, but it seems only minor changes were required to make Gmu run.

The amount of maintenance required is just too high for my taste - even for a rolling release distro it does not have to be that bad.
