Hello all, recently i´m getting my raspberry pi with a lightweight distribution(diet-pi) and tried to launch openmsx. The results, altough not bad, aren't toot good. I managed to get a1gt emulation ok, but on small window, at full screen it stutters, and in either of those options, cores run at full speed with the corresponding heat increment. Can openmsx be launched from the console using framebuffer and skipping the desktop?. I think it would be better in terms of performance.
Thanks in advance!!!

An accelerated video driver, even under X, has its advantages....

Which openMSX version do you use? Do you compile it yourself? If yes, how exactly?

I think it depends on which video drivers are compiled in the SDL2 library that you use.

Depending on who compiled it, you can try to tweak with the SDL_VIDEODRIVER variable. See for instance https://stackoverflow.com/questions/57672568/sdl2-on-raspber...
However, this is something to be asked in the community of your distro. So, who packaged it and what did they compile into the binary in SDL video driver support.
