My quest to install retroarch on my asus chromebox.
I will use this to document everything ive tried and didn't work and hopefully somebody else can benefit from this.
I will edit this post as i make progress.

1. sourceforge.net/projects/retroarch-openelec/files/ (tssemek)
This one seems promising as its been updated only 1,5 years ago.
Full install does the same as manual install
Manual install creates ~/retroarch/ thats good
Plugin install correctly but doesnt run. Theres no ~/.kodi/addons/plugin.retroarch/ but there is ~/.kodi/addons/gaming.retroarch/
==> to investigate further


2. github.com/bite-your-idols/gamestarter
pretends its for libreelec but has to work for openelec too, right?
installs a repository
i choose to install retroarch only
it creates a new addon
it starts retroarch (exciting)
and openelec crashes and reboots

I didn't bother to check the logs.

explicitly states it's only for rpi arm.
==> not testing untill I have cried at least once.

Chrome OS or OpenElec system Generic x86_64 ?????
RetroArch Openelec addon is a Kodi plugin dedicated to OpenElec system Generic x86_64 for playing your favourite retro games. It wraps around libretro API and supports a huge list of emulators

Probably not compiled for Chrome OS or missing libs for you openelec system

I download all cores again with this version.
Advanced Emulator Launcher is different from Advanced Launcher, I thought they were the same 😅 now I install Advanced Launcher and it's work!!!!
Audio randomly sometimes works and sometimes not, I need to investigate on it.

Thanks very much @giuliano
