So, I just started using retroarch on linux, and noticed that performance of directory scanning is atrocious. I had to do some silly trick someone mentioned in a github bug to start a game and put it into Fast Forward in order to speed up the scanning.
The only forum post I see here about linux performance is below.
The difference is like 20x faster, so its not a trivial impact. My OS is current and supported. This isn’t a network or hardware limitation (by far). So I have to suspect retroarch has a bug needing attention. Do devs come thru here? or only github?
