    rpi2, on retropie install i could just barely see under the quake 3 arena install “gzip stdin not in gzip format” when finished installing and i run quake 3 arena i see “/home/pi/roms/ports/Quake III Arena.sh: line 2:/opt/retropie/ports/quake3/ioquake3.arm :No such file or directory”

    also “sudo rpi-update 192” results in

    gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
    tar: Child returned status 1
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

    These are two issues – firstly looks like a networking problem or something else happened during install – you can reinstall the bits that failed.

    the rpi-update part is unrelated – rpi-update takes a single parameter if required to install an older firmware which is the sha1 of the repository revision. 192 is not valid. You shouldn’t need need to use rpi-update btw – new firmwares are packaged when ready.

    Option 1 from retropie-setup

    Sounds like you might be better off with a prebuilt SD image.
