On my side, I have used kernel 4.18 to 4.20 and open source drivers too. I am also running Retropie without any issue too. I would be happy to use Batocera because of the same reason as yelever (direct to the OS, no interruption when the desktop needs to update a tier software). Which kernel Batocera uses, older one ?
I would be happy to share logs, however, the bug is the famous black screen when I boot on UEFI, and crash at blue batocera logo when booting in Legacy. I am not sure if batocera can log anything at those steps. Please feel free to tell me how to share logs if this is possible with the bugs I have described.
joinski : And when you have a Windows/Linux/Software bug on Intel, do you go to Intel ?
