Best softwares for a home made PSP console


Hello everyone !!!

I'm new on the forum and this is going to be my first question. And so to say, I'm not very good with Linux... I'm running a Raspberry Pi which is plugged in on my TV. Nothing crazy there... This is why I'm here, I want to know more about the Linux world, it looks very interesting but a bit complicated some times.

Regarding my question.
I saw a great project online, building a PSP version 1000, working with a Raspberry Pi Zero using custom PCB, wiring etc... It's looks awesome but I'm wondering if any Linux distri' would run on this. Fedora ? Any other distri' ?

I would like to install a version of Retropie as well (of course) and run my Linux distri' next to that on multi boot using BerryBoot maybe ? What do you think, is this possible ? I was wondering because I think that BerryBoot doesn't work with a joystick, or joypad, so with a PSP joystick... but can someone confirm that or help me to figure out something ?
Basically I don't want to have a keyboard plugged in all the time and be able to select the boot somehow using the console only.
The aim is to be able to play reto games like a real PSP console but also to boot on the distri' to be able to surf the web and some other stuff...

Talking about that... Is there any possibility to move the "mouse" with the joystick ? And for example to use the L and R button for clicks ? Same for the keyboard, any virtual keyboard or something that could work on this project ? Using : xboxdrv, qjoypad, js2mouse, antimicro for example ? (quick look on internet)

I know and I'm sorry this is a long topic and a lot of questions. But I really hope that some of you had the courage to read it all trough and that someone can help me to get the project running

Thanks is advance guys !!!

Asso'

Hello! The raspberry pi is nice! Linux has good USB device support and PPSSPP uses SDL2 so it should pick up a usb gamepad. You can check to see if Linux is picking up the gamepad by using lsusb command. I've never tried to game on a pi.

I suppose many of these distributions could work for you because they support ARM architecture:

Hello there,
thanks for answering and thanks for the link.

I think I just have to try to and see how it works.
For the berryboot and use the joystick or pad to move to different boot it looks like there is going to be issues as berryboot doesn't work with gamepads according to the github :
Issue 1
Issue 2

About the soft I could use once in my Distri', any suggestions ?

xboxdrv, qjoypad, js2mouse, antimicro ? or something else to recommand ?

Oh yeah, Retropie is going to be one of the boot.
If I can handle that the way I want, those are going to be my boot :

- Retropie
- Librelec
- Any linux distri to go on internet and work like it would be a normal computer
