ARM notes

  • If you are on newer AARCH64 based Linux distributions such as Arch/Manjaro, you will need to install glu and mesa-git (sudo pacman -Sy glu mesa-git)
  • If the game boots into the GLAD renderer, exit the game and edit VideoRenderers in ~/.stepmania 5.3/Save/Preferences.ini to list opengl first.
  • Follow this tutorial to get better performance on your ARM device:
  • If you are on a Raspberry Pi 3B/3B+ or 4 and want 64-bit, this image of Raspberry Pi OS has native OpenGL 2.1 drivers.
  • As per some of the issues with the in-built systems on the RPi, if you have many entries of broken pipe in your log files and ALSA errors, this is often worked around with a USB sound card or similar. We have not seen anything on Manjaro which matches this, so far it appears to be a Debian issue.
  • Don't expect crazy performance/perfect playback! We are still learning to tweak the engine for better performance on ARM, so please be patient!
