Attract requires X so we need to install it (took a while! =( )
sudo apt-get update (installation of lxde will fail otherwise)
sudo apt-get install xinit
sudo apt-get install lxde
Back to the instructions from the Wiki:
git clone -b rpi https://github.com/mickelson/SFML sfml-pi
mkdir sfml-pi/build;cd sfml-pi/build

sudo make install
cd ~/develop git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/mickelson/attract attract

sudo raspi-config – Overclock to Turbo, change memory split to 256mb.
First time, I got the X log-in screen for Debian 8, keyboard and mouse wouldn’t work. Couldn’t SSH into it so had to pull plug.
Plugged it back in and this time the RetroPie splash screen appeared but wouldn’t go further, couldn’t SSH so had to pull plug again.
Plugged it again and a whole screen of messages has appeared including stuff about systenmd-fsck , Started LSB, Starting Avahi and Starting D-Bus. Frozen. Can’t SSH into the Pi, have to pull plug.
Fourth time, RetroPie splash screen loads, disappears and left with blank screen. Can’t SSH into Pi so now giving up..
