    I managed to install Retropie and EmulationStation thanks to the Git tuto.
    So far so good. My gamepad is recongised and configured (Xbox 360 Wireless).
    I have installed a few ROMs:
    – MegaMan & Mario for NES
    – Buggs Bunny and Tetris for GameBoy
    – Sonic for Megadrive

    Alas, only Bugs Bunny is launching! (which is great by the way… :p )

    So my trouble with the other games:
    – loaded in the games list for the relevant system
    – game will load: I can see the start screen with the options to select if any
    – START: when I push start button, the game is not starting. I have the black screen and then it’s coming back to the games list of the current system…

    I have attached the screen shot of the console output while the game is started (EmulationStation is started from Putty on the PC – I have exactly the same issue when EmuSTation is started locally).

    Any idea?
    Pi is overclocked at 800 Mhz, RAM splitted to 256 (out of 512)

    thks for your help!
