Update_RetroArch_to_1.7.7 cpm: maintainer-approval? (yuri)

- 1.3.6 to 1.7.1
- cleanup (-pthread is already added, netplay & fbo are not options anymore)
- regenerate patches
- add WAYLAND option (requires wayland-egl in mesa)
- skip the vkCreateInstance check to always build Vulkan support (since loading is dynamic and headers are included)
- instead of adding --x-* to qb/qb.params.sh, use HAS_CONFIGURE instead of GNU_CONFIGURE to prevent that argument from appearing
- set up more things to point to our PREFIX in retroarch.cfg, use lib/libretro instead of libexec/libretro because cores are shared libraries

I'm going to also post assets/shaders ports here soon

Here's ports for libretro-core-info, libretro-shaders-glsl, libretro-shaders-slang, retroarch-assets.

I'm not sure what's the best way to handle deps (make RetroArch depend on these optionally but by default?)

And the plists are rather large, maybe they should be dynamic? (what's the way to do that for non-python ports?)

Hi Greg,

Thank you for the patch. I will look into this within a few days.
I didn't realize there was any interest in RetroArch.
There is also the libretro-cores port that I will re-add. It has been deleted because it had git hash collisions in 7-digit hashes.

Comment 3 Greg V 2018-04-07 18:48:21 UTC
Speaking of cores, mGBA (bug 227346) and Mesen (bug 227351) have upstream libretro support, so their cores come from the corresponding ports. (And PPSSPP will join the party with the next release: https://github.com/hrydgard/ppsspp/pull/10780)

Also fixes ffmpeg 4.0 support, see

Here's 1.7.3 (on top of the previous patches). Now with Qt GUI.

(and libretro-core-info @ 1.7.2, there's no 1.7.3 tag yet)

oops, looks like it also needs: QT_NONSTANDARD=yes
(not a GNU makefile, --with-qt-includes is not a valid option)

Landed in ports r470890. I haven't tested it but RetroArch-1.3.6 is probably too old for ppsspp core.

Cool! PPSSPP works for me on 1.7.3, but only with Vulkan.

GL segfaults (address 0x0) at ppsspp_libretro.so`Draw::DrawContext::CreatePresets() + 14.

10 months has passed. Do you actually plan to maintain this port?

Attached patch to update RetroArch to 1.7.7 release.


This patch doesn't include libretro-* and retroarch-assets ports, but it needs games/retroarch-assets as RUN_DEPENDS.
Comment 12 Yuri Pankov freebsd_committer 2019-09-12 17:36:40 UTC
Just a ping.  1.3.6 found in ports doesn't work at all for me, so I have to use 1.7.8 from git which I'd rather not do. Can the port be updated, please?

Someone just resurrected libretro core ports: https://github.com/myfreeweb/freebsd-ports-dank/pull/6
