I was unable to start any game using this plugin, It always makes kodi to crash down and exit with the attached crashlog. Please note that launching the exact same game file with bulk mupen64plus (2.5.0) from the command line works flawlessly.

Additional info:
* package version(s):
- kodi 19.1-6
- kodi-addon-game-libretro 2.2.0-8
- kodi-addon-game-libretro-mupen64plus-nx 1:
* config: default

Steps to reproduce:

- Start kodi
- Browse to Games/N64 collection
- Select a n64 rom game to play
- Kodi hangs for 30 seconds... then crash and exit
This task depends upon

I was able to reproduce the issue on another computer. The generated crashlog is slightly different. I guess some debugging symbols may be installed over there.

After discussion on the issue quoted above, this is not intended to work due to kodi currently not supporting OpenGL.

Shouldn't we remove this unfixable package from the arch repository?
