Combian 64 v2.8.1 (Fix corrupted installer)
Dear Combians :))
many of you wrote me about the problem encountered trying to install additional packages. After a bit of investigation i discovered that image got corrupted in the partition shrink process.
I’m very sorry for that and for this reason i’m posting below the full size image of Combian v2.8.1 that shouldn’t have to present the problem anymore.
Please, if you were waiting for the new 3.0 release, i’m very sorry to inform that delay was caused by my Raspberry Pi death :))
I promise to keep going on developing version 3.0 (which will compile with the new version of Vice 3.2) as soon as possible.
Thanks for the comprehension 🙂
Get back soon 🙂
Combian 64 v3.0 is coming…stay tuned 😉
For those of you who don’t know what Combian 64 is, i explain you shortly.
Combian 64 is Raspberry Pi distribution able to boot your preferite Commodore machine in just few seconds.
It uses the brand new compiled version of Vice 3.1 to emulate all the Commodore Machines set.
By default, Combian 64 boots the Commodore 64 emulator, but it’s not the only one included in the distro….what if you want to emulate a Commodore Vic 20?
Easy answer! 😉
By quitting the emulator (pressing key F8), typing ‘menu’ command from the shell, you have access to the internal Combian 64 menu which will allow you to change options like: emulator to run at boot, run raspi-config command, reboot your Raspberry Pi, shutdown, or even run again the emulator.
Combian 64 is a free project, this means you can modify, improve, customise it as you like.

Did you like Combian 64?
Altough the spirit of this distro is to keep alive our passion for retrogaming, developing new features and releases of Combian requires time and resources, so, as an encouragement to keep on working on it, please, consider to make a free donation 🙂
Need VKM files for Keyrah?
If you use Combian64 to build your own Commodore retromachine based on Keyrah, thank to Antonio Stoppa, you can now download a matching C64 keyboard VKM configuration file. Enjoy it 😉

People who made Combian64 possible
First of all it is natural to thank the Vice team for their incredible Commodore machines emulator, without it, Combian64 wouldn’t exist.
I’d like to thank also the facebook group “Retro Emulation World.” which inspired me with the idea and suggestions on Combian64 development. If you want to be part of this incredible community, click the image below 🙂
