How to Create SNES RetroArch NRO with Roms
Code:
#!/bin/bash
# Download your SNES roms and place them in RetroArch/fs/
# Rename all your roms with lowercase characters with no space for example supermarioworld.smc

# Go back to the RetroArch folder, right click and open terminal in the RetroArch folder then type # each command one by one, pressing enter between each commands

make -f Makefile.switch clean

# Press Enter

make LLVM_POSTFIX=-5.0 -f Makefile.switch LIBTRANSISTOR_HOME=/home/unix/libtransistor

# Press Enter

# A file called retroarch_switch.nro will be created in the same folder, copy it to a location of # your choice and run with pegaswitch.

How to Run The NRO You Created in Pegaswitch
Code:
#!/bin/bash
# Copy the nro file you created to your home folder
# Open terminal and launch Pegaswitch by typing

pegaswitch

# Open another terminal and type

ncat -klp 2991

# get your switch connected to Pegaswitch by setting the DNS address in your switch to the IP in pegaswitch (the ip of your VM)

# in Pegaswitch terminal window type

runnro ./nros/ace.nro

# Open another terminal window and type (note that xxx is your Switch ip address)

ncat xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 2991 < retroarch_switch.nro

Then your homebrew should load

How to Rebuild libtransistor, RetroArch and the Snes9x2010 file from scratch on any Linux machine

Code:
New scripts updated to include NES, GBA emulators
Easily select the option you want to start building. Remember to put your roms in the RetroArch/fs folder before running the buildretro script

The first script (buildenv.sh):
[LIST]
[*]removes and rebuilds libtransistor, snes9x, vba-next and fceumm from their github sources
[*]creates fs directory
[/LIST]
The second script buildretro.sh):
[LIST]
[*]make-cleans the retroarch folder
[*]prompts you to select which emulator you want to build for
[*]copies the respective libretro_switch.a to the RetroArch folder and builds the emulator .nro file
[/LIST]




How to download someone else's version of source code

Code:
People can use git to download whatever fork of retroarch they want

All you have to do is

go to your home folder then

git clone https://github.com/vgmoose/RetroArch.git RetroArch_vgmoose

it will create a folder called RetroArch_vgmoose

copy the libretro_switch.a file from the original RetroArch folder into the RetroArch_vgmoose folder

create a folder called fs in RetroArch_vgmoose folder and put your rom in there

then run these commands after opening up terminal in the RetroArch_vgmoose folder

make -f Makefile.switch clean
make LLVM_POSTFIX=-5.0 -f Makefile.switch LIBTRANSISTOR_HOME=/home/unix/libtransistor

then youll get your nro file from the vgmoose fork

I have problem to loading it.
Error:
VT-x is disabled in the BIOS for all CPU modes (VERR_VMX_MSR_ALL_VMX_DISABLED).

Can you attach the Pegaswitch Directory (zipped) & .bashrc, please ?

Thanks!

You should be able to do it from a live CD. Mount the ISO in VirtualBox and boot into it on the VM.
