Raspberry PI 3B+

Postby Derek_Stewart » Wed Apr 03, 2019 9:02 pm

Hi,

I received a Raspberry PI 3B+ when I renewd my Elektor magazine subscription.

Whats is the best QL emulator for the Raspberry PI 3B+, UQLX or SMSQmulator using Java.

Or does the implementation of WINE in the ExaGear Desktop able to to run QPC2 or Q-Emulator.


Regards,

Derek

Hi Derek,

probably SMSQmulator on Java. Although I have not tried the ability to run x86 code under any form of emulated system on any of my Pis, even the 3b+.

However, uQLx is compiled natively, so should be the faster option. Try both?

Cheers,
Norm.

There’s also ZEsarUX which is available as a pre-built binary for the raspberry pi https://github.com/chernandezba/zesarux/releases - this package emulates a number of Sinclair computers, including the QL - I’ve mainly used it as a ZX81 emulator on the pi, so I’m not sure how the QL emulator compares with the alternatives, but it may be worth a look...

Probably best to re-compile for 3B+ though as armv6 exe's on armv7/8 doesn't make use of many of the nice optimisation's possible.
