Sx05RE An emulation (retro) fork for Sx05 devices, Most of the code is from Kszaq's LE and Lakka, I just combine them with some changes, add Emulationstation and some standalone emulators (Advancemame, PPSSPP, Reicast and others).

To build use:

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install gcc make git gcc-multilib lib32stdc++6
sudo dpkg-reconfigure dash (select no, to install bash as the default)
git clone Sx05RE
cd Sx05RE
make image PROJECT=S905 ARCH=arm DISTRO=Sx05RE

I use Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS

Please note, this is mostly a personal project made for my S905 Box (Mini M8S) I can't guarantee that it will work for your box as I don't own any other boxes, don't expect changes to fit your personal needs, but I do appreciate any PRs, help on testing other boxes and fixing issues.

I have a very crappy laptop since my main one burned out, and I work on this project on my personal time, I don't make any money out of it, so it takes a while for me to properly test any changes, but I will do my best to help you fix issues you might have on other boxes limited to my time and experience.

Happy retrogaming!
