    Hey guys,

    I’ve recently started running ES on my Pi Model B, and for a while everything was fine, but recently ES has been failing to boot leaving just a black screen and if I do manage to get it to load it has strange graphical glitches.

    The command line reads:
    ALSA lib pcm.c:7339:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred
    Over and over again whenever booting fails.

    I’ve tried updating ES using the ‘cd EmulationStation’ method but for some reason it tells me that the directory does not exist.

    I’m really frazzled about this and even after a fresh install nothing has improved. Help!
