    It happened again and can’t figure out what caused it..
    This is the 4rth time this has happened. The only solution so far is to re-image and start from scratch after making so many changes I can’t keep track.

    lvl0: Error initializing SDL!
    No available video device
    lvl0: Renderer failed to initialize!
    lvl0: Window failed to initialize!

    I followed a few incomplete instructions /webpages like this
    https://solarianprogrammer.com/2015/01/22/raspberry-pi-raspbian-getting-started-sdl-2/

    But nothing seems to work. It must have been something simple. Don’t want to start from scratch again. Also anyone recommend a good backup procedure so I can revert back? I backup the whole SD but takes time and huge 32gb in size.
