libretro is an API that exposes generic audio/video/input callbacks. A frontend
for libretro (such as RetroArch) handles video output, audio output, input and
application lifecycle. A libretro core written in portable C or C++ can run
seamlessly on many platforms with very little to no porting effort.

While RetroArch is the reference frontend for libretro, several other projects
have used the libretro interface to include support for emulators and/or game
engines. libretro is completely open and free for anyone to use.

Fedora Account System Username: atim

Why this package is not eligible to be included in Fedora?
Requires ffmpeg and NVIDIA Cg Toolkit for non-free version.


We trying to package two versions - free and non-free. Non-free version
requires free version from main Fedora repo. Also would be nice to package
non-free libretro cores in RPM Fusion in future.
