Recalbox 7.0

Mini How To Prepare RecalboxOS Buildroot Env



  • I did follwoing steps to get a fresh installed system prepared for building rectalbox-buildroot. - prepared a VirtualBox Server / 4Gb RAM / 4CPU Cores / 50Gb HDD - install Debian Jessie RC1 amd64 (Netinstall/SSH-Server Only) - Reboot & logged in - execute: sudo: su -c 'apt-get install sudo' - modify /etc/sudoers with: su -c 'visudo -f /etc/sudoers' - add Line below user root: <userid> ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL - execute: cd /opt - execute: sudo wget <link to createRecalboxOS.sh - execute: sudo chmod 777 createRecalboxOS.sh - execute: sudo ./createRecalboxOS.sh recalbox-rpi2 (this will give us following error)

    make[1]: Leaving directory '/opt/recalbox-buildroot-recalbox-rpi2'
    You must install 'hg' on your build machine
    hg is usually part of the mercurial package in your distribution
    support/dependencies/dependencies.mk:28: recipe for target 'core-dependencies' failed
    make: *** [core-dependencies] Error 1
    
    • execute: sudo apt-get install mercurial - execute: sudo ./createRecalboxOS.sh recalbox-rpi2 (again) (this will give us following error)

      You must install 'java' on your build machine
      support/dependencies/dependencies.mk:28: recipe for target 'core-dependencies' failed
      make: *** [core-dependencies] Error 1

    • execute: sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list - add: line deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian jessie main contrib - execute: sudo apt-get update - execute: sudo apt-get install java-package - download from oracle a arm64 jdk installer (e.g. jdk-8u31-linux-x64.tar.gz from ) - execute: sudo apt-get install libxtst6 - execute: make-jpkg jdk-8u31-linux-x64.tar.gz - execute: sudo dpkg -i oracle-java8-jdk_8u31_amd64.deb - execute: sudo ./createRecalboxOS.sh recalbox-rpi2 (finally, the show must go on!) I am now going to watch Lord of the Rings as recommended in the script 😉

    Hi, thank for all those informations. I will add the missing dependencies to the script for the next release.



  • one detph I think you can't easely add, because java needs an manaual installation where you first have to create a .dep file. that's why I decided to share my experiance.
