Hey, I wanted to turn an old Raspberry Pi I had lying around into an emulator, so I followed the guide here: https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup to install the RetroPie project. When I run EmulationStation I get to the “Welcome, press and hold a key to configure” screen, but when I do, it freezes and ignores input. I can’t even press F4 to exit. I’ve tried keyboard, keyboard + mouse, and Xbox 360 controller, but it all happens the same. I’ve also tried different power adapters in case that was the issue, but no luck.
Pi Model: B Revision 2 (pretty sure, not 100%)
RetroPie Version Used: whichever the latest script version is, 3.0?
Built From: binary
USB Devices connected: Keyboard and/or mouse and/or XBox 360
Error messages received: None
Guide used: https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup
More relevant information: I had a few issues while installing, namely, when I first ran the setup script I had a missing library (libudev-dev I think) which I resolved by adding some other repository and running the setup script again. Also, I’m running off some dual-boot sd card. The SD card has a little sticker that says berryboot on it, probably from some pre-made kit, I’m not sure since this isn’t my Pi. I also am currently installing emulationstation from source, using the retropie setup script menu option, but I won’t be able to check that until I get home from work.
Thanks for your help. Let me know if this is in the wrong place.
That’s my next plan. I didn’t want to install the image on my current SD card, since it is my sisters and I didn’t want to erase all her stuff, but I have an SD card and card reader that’ll arrive soon which I’ll burn the image to if all else fails.
Edit: I suddenly realized I could just use BerryBoot to install a second image to the same SD card. Durr. It even has version 2.3 to download automatically. So consider my issue resolved, I guess.
