VICE on DietPi 7.8.2 on RPi 2B v1.1

Post by beeltink »

So, steps to install VICE on DietPi v7.8.2 on a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B Version 1.1.
This is the DietPi-image based on Bullseye with Amiberry installed.
Installed packages:
  • Amiberry: Optimised Amiga emulator for ARM-based SoCs
  • Python 3 RPi.GPIO: Control Raspberry Pi GPIO channels in Python 3
  • OpenSSH Client: Feature-rich SSH, SFTP and SCP client
  • MC: midnight command
  • ALSA: Advanced Linux Sound Architecture
  • Build-Essential: GNU C/C++ compiler, development libraries and headers
  • Git: Clone and manage Git repositories locally
  • Python 3: Runtime system, pip package installer and development headers
  • Display resolution: vc4-fkms-v3d: OpenGL | 1920 x 1080
  • GPU/RAM Memory Split: 128 MiB GPU | 896 MiB RAM
Updated all packages on the DietPi to the latest version:
  • dietpi-update
  • apt-get update
  • apt-get upgrade
Installed dependencies:
  • sudo apt-get install libsdl1.2-dev
  • sudo apt-get install byacc
  • sudo apt-get install flex
Possible dependencies:
  • libsdl1.2-dev
  • byacc/yacc/bison
  • flex/lex
Downloaded and extracted Vice 2.4.20 And executing the following commands:
  • ./configure --enable-sdlui --without-pulse --without-resid --enable-arch=no
  • make -j4
  • sudo make -j4 install
And to execute:
x64 -sdlbitdepth 8

The problem I haven't been able to solve is that my RPi runs in OpenGL, which is preconfigured in the Amiberry DietPi image: vc4-fkms-v3d: OpenGL | 1920 x 1080
When I start x64, only 1/4th of the screen (the upper left corner) displays a full screen x64, the rest of the screen is black.
I would like to have the x64 running full screen.

Update: all attempts to get this working properly failed (I'm a beginner when it comes to working with Linux and compiling code).
