Install Exagear In 2020 (Raspberry Pi)

2 min read · 20th June 2020

Exagear is gone and so is Eltechs, suprisingly enough their activation server seems to be still working (2022 edit: I highly doubt it’s still online.), although my supposed «multi-device license» only worked on my Pi and not someone’s else, keeping in mind that this was a fresh installation of Raspbian I can only assume their activation server is online and that I was sold something else than stated.

When I first bought Exagear, I went for the enterprise version for the RPi 3 (costing £32), so I don’t feel bad at all sharing anything below as my license does not work anymore or I was actually sold the wrong license. And the company is gone anyways.

Downloading Exagear

I currently mirror old copies of Exagear from which you can find the version you need.

Choose an Exagear package:

Choose a dsound package:

Choose a guest image:

Installing Exagear

Before going forwards, we need to install prerequisites.

Make sure to uninstall any old versions of Exagear (this will wipe your images).

Create a new directory and enter it:

Download the packages to this folder using wget , i.e. wget https://dl.insrt.uk/path/to/file .

Hence, install all the packages:

Patching Exagear

This method was provided by toasteh on the pyra-handheld forums.

To quickly patch your current installation, run:

Final Notes

Once installed you can run exagear and you’re done! Run arch if you don’t believe me.

Be sure to update your new environment:

Lastly, if you had any issues don’t hesistate to leave me a message.

Thanks for reading.

Further Ideas

Now that you have your new x86 environment, you could:

  • Play some old game titles on your Pi.
  • Run a CS 1.6 server from your Pi.

Description of ExaGear Desktop and Use with Raspberry Pi

Virtual machines are very popular in the PC world and have a lot of applications there. But this is not true for Raspberry Pi. RPi has a different CPU architecture comparing to usual PC – it is based on ARM CPU instead of x86. That is why common solutions for PC world will not work – VMware and VirtualBox support only x86 architecture. Although Raspberry Pi is the most popular mini PC device, developing such sophisticated software as a virtual machine would require much effort.

Installing and using the open-source VMs that support ARM (like QEMU or KVM) may be rather tricky. But even if you overcome all the obstacles you will face another issue – you can not run x86 software inside your VM. This happens because modern virtual machines can not emulate another CPU, they just allow Guest OS system to share hardware resources with the host OS. One can recall cross-architecture solution of QEMU, but QEMU does it with huge performance overheads and with a lot of limitations. This makes it useless in most cases. So, here we could give up, but fortunately, we have ExaGear Desktop !

As you’ve probably understood from the info above, ExaGear Desktop is a virtual machine that supports x86 translation to ARM architecture. To be more precise, ExaGear Desktop is an application-level virtual machine. What does it mean? It means that ExaGear Desktop emulates x86 environment only for applications, but not for x86 OSes. So, you can not run x86 Windows or x86 Linux itself, but you can run almost any x86 application (in case of Windows – application using Wine) with the help of ExaGear Desktop. Why did we make an application-level VM, but not a full-level VM? There are two main reasons:

1. An application-level VM works faster and consumes fewer resources of RPi (such as CPU and memory).

2. Implementation of a full-level VM is much harder.

As long as users need certain apps more than some OS, an application-level VM looks more valuable for end-users. So we decided to start from this approach. But for sure, we are also planning to implement a full-level VM. Stay tuned for updates.

This way of using ExaGear Desktop allows you to easily launch x86 programs, including Spotify , Skype , Teamviewer , TeamSpeak 3 Server , Dropbox , Telegram , uTorrent and many others on your Raspberry Pi (as well as on Odroid, Banana Pi, Pine64, etc.).

Moreover, with ExaGear Desktop you can create a heterogeneous environment where both ARM and x86 applications can work simultaneously and communicate with each other as usual Linux applications. This allows you to make your Raspberry Pi more flexible, combining programs with different architecture in one system.

ExaGear Desktop Installation

1. Put ExaGear Desktop archive with installation packages and ExaGear Desktop license key in the same folder. Open Terminal (command line), move to this folder and unpack the archive using the following command:

2. Install and activate ExaGear on your ARM device by running install-exagear.sh script in the directory with deb packages and one license key:

Launch the Guest x86 System on Your ARM Device

3. Enter the guest x86 system using the following command:

You are in the x86 environment that can be checked by running the ‘arch’ command:

4. It is recommended to update apt-get repositories on the first launch of the guest system:

Now you can play with your x86 virtual machine and install your favorite PC applications!

After installing an x86 application in the guest x86 environment you can just go to the Start Menu of your Raspbian and run this application simultaneously with native ARM applications.

For example, you can run Spotify on Raspberry Pi with ExaGear Desktop virtual machine. You can even use Spotify Connect on your Android or iOS device to remotely control the music on your Raspberry Pi.

ExaGear.Запускаем приложения x86 на Raspberry Pi

Если вам интересно как запустить x86 приложения на Raspberry Pi, то прошу под кат, все намного проще чем вы думаетеСтатья является логическим продолжением вот этой статьи(ссылка).

Знакомство

С ExaGear вы можете запустить приложение x86 на Mini PC одновременно с обычными родными приложениями. ExaGear представляет собой виртуальную машину, которая реализует виртуальный контейнер x86 Linux на ARM и позволяет запускать приложения x86 непосредственно на ARM.Вы даже можете запускать приложения для Windows на вашем ARM Mini PC, если вы установите Wine.

Использование

Все как-то даже слишком легко Вводим в консоли exagear и понеслась,вы в x86 системе и можете установить x86 программы

Тесты

Я тестировал Wine.Все работет очееень быстро,запускается все прекрасно.

На скрине выше я решил показать вам как выглядит запущенная таким образом NOTEPAD++

Где же это взять?

Программа платная и продается на офф.сайте разработчика ССЫЛКА

Привет! Ты новичок и не знаешь, «что, куда и зачем?», вот краткая информация:

ES (ExaGear Strategies) — приложение изначально заточенное под жанр игр «Стратегии», а именно — Heroes of Might and Magic 3, Disciples II, Civilization III, Panzer General 2

ERPG (ExaGear RPG) — приложение изначально заточенное под жанр игр «RPG», а именно — Fallout 1-2, Might & Magic 6-8, Arcanum, Jagged Alliance 2

ED — (ExaGear Windows Emulator) — приложение разрабатывался как проект для Chromebook, который позволял запускать Windows приложения на Android, хотя все же имеется интеграция кода для улучшения и видов управления для игр, а именно — Fallout 1, StarCraft: Brood War, Heroes of Might and Magic 3, Diablo 2, Disciples 2, Panzer General 2, Arcanum, Heroes of Might and Magic 4, Might and Magic 6, Might and Magic 7, Civilization 3, Caesar 3, Pharaoh and Cleopatra, Total Annihilation, Age of Wonders, Stronghold Crusader Extreme HD, Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri, Divine Divinity, Jagged Alliance 2, Neighbours from Hell, Deus Ex, Unreal Tournament,

1. Чтобы использовать любое из приложение, требуется скачать само приложение (.apk) и кэш (.obb) к нему — > Скачать приложение (.apk) / кэш (.obb) / dsound (.dll) (ссылка так же имеется в шапке)

2. После скачивания, требуется разархивировать кэш (.obb) в папку «Android/obb/» на внутреннем хранилище, после установить приложение (.apk)

3. Далее нужное Windows-приложение(игру) в установленном виде нужно скопировать по пути:

Взять готовые и проверенные игры/программы вы можете здесь — > База данных игр / софта (кликабельно)
Если вам нужно приложение, которого нет в базе, или не имеется «установленого» варианта, вы можете самостоятельно установить его на ББ и перенести на устройство или попробовать установить через сам эмулятор.

4. Запустить приложение, и выбрать нужный .exe файл для запуска и наслаждаться игрой
4.1. Если вы будете использоваться «нестандартное» приложения для эмулятора, вам нужно будет еще выбрать вариант управления, более подробно о них можно почитать здесь — > Варианты управления в приложениях
4.2. Инфопост про запуск на Android 11+

5. В случае возникновений проблем (вылеты из программы и т. п.) можете почитать Большой FAQ или об этом написать в данной теме по следующему шаблону:

1. Технические подробности
1.1 Приложение + кэш
1.2 Ссылку на пост с игрой, если брали игру отсюда
2. Устройство
2.1 Версия андроида
2.2 Версия прошивки (если, не официальная — указать какая именна оболочка стоит или прислать ссылку на пост с прошивкой)
3. Алгоритм ваших действий от А до Я
4. Приложите лог приложения «x86-stderr.txt», находящийся в корне внутренний памяти в аттачи сообщения
