When running under Linux, I can access the RGUI / main RetroArch application.
I want to disable the EmulationStation frontend, and just use the RetroArch binary.
Is this possible? If I build from source, is there a way to also build RetroArch?
Is it already installed somewhere?
actually this forum is hosted by petrockblog who created the retropie project. Emulationstation was created by Aloshi and Nils and is used by the retropie project. Emulationstation has its own forum here: http://emulationstation.org/forum/index.php
And retroarch also has its own forum- which in your case it looks like all you are looking to do is build a standalone retroarch program without emulationstation. if that’s the case- you’ll probably have better luck on the retroarch forums: http://libretro.com/forums/ (for the raspberry pi it will be under “Linux”)
