Hate to Rez an old thread but I have been working on a compile myself. Cannot seem to get it up. If I just gave you a RPi online 24/7 - could you help with this? I have a few of them so setting one online isn’t a big deal/dedicating it for eqemu dev.

1. swap file: /etc/dphys-swapfile
2. ERRSV: embperl.cpp
Modify the code:
if((count == 0) && (SvTRUE(ERRSV)))
3. memcpy: many files, use memcpy for float
float x;
float y;
float z;
//float x = *(float*)buf;
buf += sizeof(float);
//float y = *(float*)buf;
buf += sizeof(float);
//float z = *(float*)buf;
buf += sizeof(float);

I was digging around and realized today that you could potentially run an EQ client on RPi 3b+ using ExaGear + WINE.

So RPi uses ARM and EQ needs x86 processor.

ExaGear lets you install x86 on ARM processor with Wine.

Direct quote from their website:
"With Eltechs ExaGear Desktop you can run Intel x86 applications on your ARM-based Mini PC simultaneously with common native ARM applications. You can even run Windows applications on your ARM Mini PC using x86 Wine. ExaGear is a virtual machine that allows you to make your ARM device more flexible, combining programs with different architecture in one system. It is like QEMU but 5 times faster!"

Has anyone done this? If not...could we??

Imagine it...

Step 1) RPi#1 - EQEMU Server
Step 2) RPi#2 - EQ Client
Step 3) ...
Step 4) Profit.

distcc works to compile it too. Still have to increase the swap, but it'll shave quite a bit of time off the compile.

Granted, once it's up it runs terribly, but hey

Hi guys,
Sorry to revive a long dead thread,
but would it be possible for someone to post the binaries compiled for raspberry for the latest Eqemu release ? maybe just the modified files would be enough.
I tried following the suggestions from iceflame to do it myself but i am not a developer so this is out of my reach.

The latest raspberry pi 4 have lots of horsepower so it would be perfect as
a home toy to run eqemu ( max 2 clients ) maybe with an external database ( to avoid burning the sd card ).

Thanks to anyone wiling to help me.

In the next few weeks, I planned on playing around with this on my 3b+.

Did a successful manual build on my 3b+ today. Haven't confirmed if it runs with no issues yet or not...
