Lakka Libreelec

Lakka is a lightweight Linux distribution that transforms a small computer into a full blown game console. libretro/Lakka-LibreELEC.

  1. Lakka Libreelec
  1. Sx05RE v 1.6 Released! This release has a lot of added content, its based on Kszaq's 8.02c version of Libreelec and the newest Lakka! It also uses the newest version of Emulationstation and it now includes REICAST standalone.
  2. LibreELEC is a lightweight ‘Just enough OS’ Linux distribution purpose-built for Kodi on current and popular mediacentre hardware.
  3. Dual Boot LibreELEC and Lakka on a PC Is there a way to dual boot LibreELEC and Lakka onto a generic x386 PC and then install a boot manager? No matter what I try, the insteller for either of these never see my second partition, and always wipes my HD and installs as a single partition.
  4. Updating Lakka on S905 with the gz (clean RC4 to RC5), labels the disks incorrectly LIBREELEC and LIBREELECDISK. Partition 1 is easy to rename to LAKKA (just from windows), but for partition two I had boot LE and run e2label to rename the partition and get Lakka to run again.Looks like the upgrade script needs a little help.
