Hello all, I have plans to construct my own Arcade Cabinet based on a few I found online.
My original plan was to use a Raspberry Pi 3 B, but I actually just received a jetson tk1 for free, which i know nothing about, other than its a little bit stronger than a raspi.
I had an OS called RetroPie installed on my pi, and it worked pretty well, but i'd rather use the jetson if i can, since i would otherwise have no use for it (and i kinda already allocated my pi for something else). so my questions are as follows:
1a) is it possible to still use retropie? I honestly don't really know a whole lot about arm chips and OS compatibility.
1b) assuming 1a is possible, does anyone have a guess at what the performance would be like compared to the pi? the pi ran everything i gave it up until about the n64, which it was iffy. honestly the only thing i know about the jetson and emulation is some guy got luigi's mansion for the gamecube running alright on it, so i would hope it can tackle n64 games better than the pi
2) assuming I cannot use retropie, does anyone know of an OS for/compatible with the tk1 that runs mame with consoles? i've tried digging and honestly i cant find much about the tk1 at all.
thanks for your time, im posting this to /r/arm as wellsubmitted by /u/Charizard9000
I'm planning to test something similar to the following and would appreciate advice on what I need to be conscious of.
One server 5 pairs of SSD disks, each running hardware raid 1 with some global hot spares. On disk pair 1 I will install the operating system and virtualisation software On the other 4 pairs of disks I will install a vm on each pair I will pin each vm to certain Cpu threads and allocate each vm a certain amount of memory. My hope is that even if 1 or 2 vms have an application issue and thrash their Cpu, memory or disk I/O it will not affect the other VMs in any noticeable way.
Question 1. Is what I am hoping correct? Question 2. What if I add more disks, memory, Cpu to my server, can I just launch more VMs on these new resources?. I'm guessing at some point I'm going to hit a bottleneck somewhere else on the hardware?

Some people already have a little GNU+Linux sign over on r/place, but IMO it looks a little bland. If anyone wants to help I'm going to try and paint a little image of Tux above the Gnu+Linux sign at (857,447) using this image as a template.
The bottom right foot of Tux starts at the two yellow squares at (874,473) and (875,473).submitted by /u/donthugmeimlurking
