    hello, I was just going to update one of my retropie’s I did a “update retropie-setup script” then rebooted now I get this error

    /opt/retropie/supplementary/emulationstation/emulationstation: error while loading libraries: libSDL2-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    and just goes into a loop,
    strange as when I did the setup script update there were no errors

    can anyone help pls?

    thanks

    edit: can i install the missing item manually? if so how?

    thanks

    fixed! i found these files on my other setup..

    libSDL2_test.a
    libSDL2-2.0.so
    libSDL2-2.0.so.0
    libSDL2-2.0.so.0.2.1

    SDL2 somehow got removed – do you know how that happened ? updating retropie-setup script doesn’t do anything to sdl2.

    no buzz, like I said, I updated the setup script, rebooted then the problem occurred

    well, the setup-script does not touch SDL when being updated, so it must have happened before, or after, or be caused by something else.
