    Hi
    Just got my Pi2 and decided to use ES to make a small arcade box.

    Now I was following the instructions on the ES site, so I did the update of the packages, got the libraries, downloaded and compiled the source, and installed.

    Took me a bit of time but in the end I was able to finish the build and start ES.

    Now I see that I need to make the config file and set up the emulators; which is a lots of work and then I found this blog. I love the idea of a script that does everything to set up ES, although I have 2 problems:

    1) I can’t clone: this address just hang saying that the connection timed out

    git clone git://github.com/petrockblog/RetroPie-Setup.git
    fatal: unable to connect to github.com:
    github.com[0: 208.73.210.214]: errno=Connection timed out

    I am using the instructions on this blog.

    2) Since I already did the first part, installing the libraries, updating and checking out the latest ES source and compile ES; which options should I select for the script?

    You could take the easy route and just write the RetroPie image to your card, as ES is already on there?

    Well, that won’t work, since I need to have raspbian configured to run in console, to work with other software (not emulators).

    After spending about a day installing and configuring everything on the standard image of raspbian, I discovered the retropie image; but now it is basically too late to start all over 🙁

    You can install this way if that suits better

    Yep, that’s the guide that I found, and this is why I posted the question about how to proceed, since I already have the source compiled and deployed on Raspbian, but I have no configuration set.
