Use Dolphin with Vulkan on RPi5

Fri Dec 08, 2023 5:27 pm

Hello,

I tried to use Dolphin with Vulkan on Raspberry Pi 5 (Raspberry Pi OS 64 bit) :
  • sudo apt update
    sudo apt install dolphin-emu
    sudo apt install mesa-vulkan-drivers
but I have this error :
Failed to initialize bounding box.
Failed to initialize renderer classes
FIFO shutting down while active
Failed to initialize video backend!
It work using OpenGL.

Thanks

I think the version is too old.

I tried to install :

Code: Select all

sudo snap install dolphin-emulator --edge
but I have this error :
error: snap "dolphin-emulator" is not available on edge for this architecture
      (arm64) but exists on other architectures (amd64).

In the Option, where you can select the renderer "Vulcan" there is a 2nd Option Drop down, where you can chose another Renderer under Vulcan. It is working but way slower than OPENGL.

The second option is "llvmpipe", it use sofware and not hardware, which leads to poor performance.
