Hi to all and first most, a big thank you to all the developers and contributors of such a great distro!
I just want to share my attempts at running the batocera on an ASUS EEE PC with a 4GB SSD.
Batocera has transformed this boring netbook into something more than just a web browser.
I've had much success in using the batocera image (batocera-5.19-x86-20181125.img.gz) from both a USB stick and an internal disk on a tiny ASUS EEE PC with only a 4GB SSD. The emulators work great out of the box and most run surprisingly smooth for such a low spec netbook.
My method of installing the batocera image to the ASUS internal SSD disk was to first boot a live cd of unbuntu/mint from usb and then dd the image to the SSD disk. After a reboot the batocera started from the SSD and loaded the emulationstation interface without any issues. I was then able to populate the roms folders with lots of retro goodies. The 4GB SSD drive was automatically partitioned into 2GB disks. a 2GB disk for the batocera and a 2GB for the shared roms.
DosBox required some tweaking to get it to work correctly, here are the tweaks to
All emulator cores worked apart from the power hungry PSX,PS2,N64 as the cpu is only a 900Mhz Celeron
and a standard intel based video chip.
Keep up the great work guys and I look forward to many updates.
