    Hey guys!

    I’ve been searching for hours, but can’t seem to find any sensible answer on how to go about changing the default rompath to my shared NFS path on my NAS.

    Since I’m pretty noob when it comes to linux also… I’m pretty lost.

    Does anyone know a guide where this is explained?
    Floob, you seem to know a lot, do you know the answer to my question?

    I’m running RetroPie 3.0 BETA2 on RPi2.

    hello,

    here is what you need to do:

    sudo nano /etc/fstab

    put a line like this:

    //192.168.1.17/Airdisk/ROMS /home/pi/RetroPie/roms cifs sec=ntlm,username=youruser,password=yourpassword,_netdev,dir_mode=0777,file_mode=0777 0 0

    replace my IP and path, user and password to your config.

    then type:

    sudo mount -a

    and finally:

    df -h

    you should see your NAS mounted to Retropie roms folder now.
