I recently received my raspberry pi 2, which i am currently setting up/testing.
I downloaded the preinstalled image for the RPi 2, and thought it would be a nice test to compile some stuff from source. So i tried to compile Retroarch from source via the retropie_setup. Just for fun and giggles.
Unfortunately it quickly ran aground with a “Checking for suitable working C compiler … Not found. Exiting.” notification. as far as i know, i got it all up and running.

Running ./configure manually generates the same error. Has anybody got any idea what i’m looking at?02/25/2015 at 14:43 #89051
Just a guess but maybe try __platform=rpi2 sudo ~/RetroPie-Setup/retropie_setup.sh to remind it that you are using a rpi 2.
I just looked on my rpi2 and this variable is already set to rpi2 so probably not that.

please provide the logfile from “logs”.02/25/2015 at 14:51 #89055
Thanks both for your reply, I forced the Rpi2 platform, but the same thing happens (as expected, but no harm in trying anyway)
Unfortunately, the logfile doesn’t show too much info, as far as i can tell:

after it failed was there a config.log in tmp/build/retroarch – that might give a clue.
I’m unable to reproduce it here, but it can’t find your c compiler for whatever reason – so something is wrong with your image. Have you adjusted the system in any way ? You changed your hostname at least I see.
It might just be worth trying with a fresh image, but if there is anything further in config.log I can try and advise.02/25/2015 at 19:34 #89092
sorry, there was no config.log generated. i’ll try a fresh image when i have the time and report back. 🙂 Thanks anyway 🙂02/25/2015 at 20:22 #89109
well, that was sooner than expected. while practising my motto “if it ain’t broke, fix it ’till it is”, i actually managed to break retroarch in such a way i feel like somehow it randomizes button mapping every time i start 😛
So time to start from scratch, i re-imaged my sd card, and after the essential “raspi-config” the first thing i tried was compiling retroarch from source, and this time it went smoothly.
Still curious what happened though, i’ll try to replicate my previous install (untill the point i break it) and try to find what the change was.
