scotto monkeypulse

Notes to self –

Make sure any and all roms for the retropie I make for / give to Sean (or anyone) are all Public Domain. Don’t want either of us to hit any bumps over a rogue copy of Yar’s Revenge.

Is archive.org’s ROM list correct? Are these all Public Domain?

PDRoms biggest (to me) known resource for public domain and test files for nearly every console ever released.

Tweak this to put the original Fallout on the Pi? – might be a fun goof to have in the PIp-boy. (video) – reference (mentions sound changes, possibly updated in newest version)


PROTIP : Raspbian is essentially Debian
Debian comes with package managment ,
long before Appstores and the like existed. Most Linux distros
have package managment , and under Debian it’s called APT
(Advanced Package Managment).
Packages are stored in online repositories , and accessed through
a package manager.

apt-get is a simple command-line tool
aptitude is a graphical package manager
synaptic is a GUI package manager

CODE: SELECT ALL

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install dosbox

(wheezy version is here, too)
