@terranigma: Hi! I'm really interested on Alpine linux solution you just described.
I'm planning to try it soon, so I'd like to ask you a few questions (sorry if this is not the most appropriate place, but maybe there are others interested on):
  • wich emulationstation version do I need to use? Debian based?
  • there's a way to *hide* linux and to have the computer start direcly in ES?
Thanks in advance

Alpine Linux is not a debian based distro. It is independent. You can install ES along with its dependencies with "apk" package manager.

Code: [Select]
apk add emulationstation emulationstation-theme-gbz35
then

Code: [Select]
apk add mame
if you prefer arcade-only setup, I suggest you to install mame-arcade package instead of "mame" which is bigger in size.
There are many ways to directly launch emulationstation after boot but I think here is not a right place discuss this. YBy saying that, you must also have  a degree of experience on Linux.

Hello, I am having an issue with the newest version of groovy arcade arch, in wich the whole frontend, gasetup included is double scanned and boucing/tearing on my Sony 2530 pvm. Running a game or rom runs fine on the tv, but the front end and gasetup screens are like this. I am using a gtx 650 for a video card. Any info on this would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks,
