    I’m getting errors compiling retroarch and dgen with the script

    retroarch complains about missing <libavutil/channel_layout.h> It’s not in my /usr/include and doesn’t seem to be part of the libavutil-dev package.

    When I try to install everything with the precompiled binaries, after generating the es_systems.cfg, only apple is detected as having roms. es_log.txt has this

    lvl2:   Starting SDL...
    lvl2:   Creating surface...
    lvl2:   Resolution: 720x480...
    lvl2:   Created surface successfully!
    lvl2:   Loaded fonts successfully.
    lvl2:   Loading system config file...
    lvl1:   System "atari2600" has no games! Ignoring it.
    lvl0:   Error reading config file "/home/pi/.emulationstation/es_systems.cfg" - no equals sign found on line "/home/pi/RetroPie/emulatorcores/stella-libretro/ --config /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg --appendconfig /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/atari2600/retroarch.cfg %ROM%""!
    lvl2:   Loading theme "/home/pi/.emulationstation/apple2/theme.xml"...
    lvl2:   Theme loading complete.



    I will have a look into the DGEN problem within the next days. You need to copy ROMs into the corresponding directories. Emulation Station shows only the systems for which ROM files are available.
