I have just built up the GPIO adapter which i think went quite well given i haven’t soldered anything for years. Have plugged it all in expecting some sort of issues but i have a problem that i cannot get the SNESDev service to run so i cannot test or do anything with the board. I have followed the video guide and when i run the command
the SNSDev service shows [-]
I have tried the command (remembering from memory so may not be 100% accurate)
sudo service SNESDev start
This does show any error but when i then check again with
service SNESDev status
I just see a Fail showing that the service is not running.
I am a complete Linux noob and spend my life on windows machines so i have no idea how to even start debugging this problem.
Just incase i somehow messed up the retropie install i redid this last night using the following
Retore IMG to SD card (8GB)
Sort out the free space
Update Setup script
Enable SNESDev with option 2 (pad and buttons)
So i have had some success. I went through the setup menu and i might have pressed the wrong button or its a bug or it meant to do it. Either way i kicked of a full update and compile of everything.
Once this had finished SNESDev is now a running service 🙂 and the button on the GPIO adapter is working. I think you can tell where there is going.
Neither of my snes controllers are working.
I’m testing it with the jstest thingy but nothing is happening.
I was confident that i had done all of the soldering correctly but i’m hoping someone can see a mistake. I’ve attached a couple of pics of my setup.
