If you choose the binaries-based installation, everything should work out of the box within a few minutes. I would recommend this type of installation at first. Afterwards, when you feel that you would like to update individual components, you can still install them individually with the custom setup.RaspDD wrote:Update: i didnt get it to work, so i decided to re-run the installation of SNES-Core. The Script worked for about 3 hours (longer then before) an installed obviously EVERY core new.
Now i get a new error when i try to start emulationstation:
/usr/bin/emulationstation: line 9: ./emulationstation: No such file or directory
I think i f... it up ? What would you suggest to do ? How can i "uninstall" everything and start from zero? Or is this not necessary?
Make sure that the extensions of your roms are lowercase and correspond to those given in /home/pi/.emulationstation/es_systems.cfg. You can show the content of that file with "cat /home/pi/.emulationstation/es_systems.cfg".RaspDD wrote:
For testing purpose i copied just 1 ROM into SNES-Folder, but
the station still says "list empty". Did i miss anything important?

I have opened a Wiki at the RetroPie site at https://github.com/petrockblog/RetroPie-Setup/wiki. This wiki could serve as a source of information for all kinds of topics related to the components that are installed by the RetroPie setup script. Feel free to put everything there that might be of interested and related to that! Right now, it just contains some major categorical pages but no real content.SuperObComMan wrote:DD,
Finally, I'd like to say thanks to the guys who've put a great deal of time into getting retroarch and emulationstation cranking on the Pi. My only request is that you please post or point to a list on a web-page the instructions as I'm struggling to remember where all the little nuggets of relevant information - config files, default keyboard mapping' etc - can be found.
Nice - yes, of course! Everyone with interest, information, problem solutions etc. is invited to contribute to the wiki!Aloshi wrote:I typed up a short wiki page for EmulationStation: https://github.com/petrockblog/RetroPie ... ionStation
(I figured this was appropriate, considering I made the thing )
I followed your hint and left the path of frustration and entered the path of enlightenment - i started from image again, and now the station starts without problems. But, without any sound, but iam sure i will solve this - TOMMOROW.SuperObComMan wrote:DD,
.p.s DD you might want to start from scratch on a newly imaged sd card if you have one. The path you're currently following may just end up in frustration
RetroPie-Setup was running the script as root breaking the way some paths are obtained.RaspDD wrote:i already tried to scrape the games via setup menu. I think it doesnt find anything, because i dont see any activity.
Post it.telarium wrote:My es_systems.cfg seems pretty solid.
Am I missing something?

Hmm, it seems as if it is definitely time that I or someone else take time to implement error checking and other integrity checks for the setup script.telarium wrote:Interesting that it didn't provide any errors that RetroArch didn't exist.
Could you give some more specific information about your setup so that I could try to figure out the critical section within the script?telarium wrote:I may have found the issue. It appears the install script failed to actually compile and install RetroArch.
