Lakka 2.1 Linux Operating System Will Turn Your PC into a Retro Gaming Console

Based on the latest LibreELEC 8.2 embedded Linux operating system, Lakka 2.1 uses the recently released Linux 4.14 LTS kernel for the Allwinner images and the Linux 4.4.99 LTS kernel for Rockchip images. It supports S812 Amlogic TV boxes, improves HDMI audio for WeTek Play 2 systems, and fixes boot arguments of Odroid-XU3 and Odroid-XU4.

For Raspberry Pi SBCs and PCs, this release enables the performance governor and a real-time kernel by default to stabilize framerate and reduce input lag. In addition, it adds the ability to use your Raspberry Pi as a Wi-Fi access point (AP). The Raspberry Pi firmware was updated as well, and there’s now support for OpenSSL, again, as well as Samba 4.
