I didn’t update anything for months, but it was time for me to install Retropie 3.2.1. It went well, transferred the roms, made some motifs regarding the overclock settings, installed wicd-curses to setup my WiFi.
But… I ruined everything after I ran the updates as usual:
– sudo apt-get update
– sudo apt-get upgrade -y
– rbi-update (firmware)
After that, the whole installation went crazy: corrupted GUI, input devices (USB gamepad and keyboard) not detected anymore…
So after a few hours and 3 installations, I’ll keep the software as it is without upgrades.
you shouldn’t use rpi-update unless there is a specific reason to (test a new release or due to an issue that you know has been fixed). New kernels and firmware are packaged up for Raspbian when they are ready.
