    I have my Retropie running op my Pi 2, and as far as I know, everything is pretty well set.

    My issue is that I’m running a lot of games in “demo-mode” and after an hour or two, it happens that the Pi is freezing, or is rebooting ES once, and can also get into an endless loop with a message like “emulation station will reboot after 5 seconds” (reboots and comes back to the very same message).

    It happens with PC-Engine, Snes and PSX games, so it’s not emulator-related imo. The memory-split setup is 384mb GPU memory.
    Firmware is up-to-date, everything else too.

    I did a complete clean reinstall, but that didn’t help.

    Oh, the reboot symptom is only happening when I quit the game (BigBen USB gamepad).

    I was able to capture a crash during a PC-Engine game on exit:

    Nobody??

    Well, I’ve noticed that the given error, if displayed, is always the same:

    /usr/bin/emulationstation: line 20: 2327 Segmentation fault $es_bin “$@”

    Again: it doesn’t matter which emulator I use…

    I’ve done a fresh install on another Pi 2, but got the same issue sometimes, again with:
    /usr/bin/emulationstation: line 20: 2327 Segmentation fault $es_bin “$@”

    This has now been reported on Github.

    How are you putting it into demo-mode?

    With demo mode, I just mean that I start a game and let it run without playing it.
    So… in most cases, the so-called “demo mode” starts automatically.

    Btw: my problem has been resolved: the lockups were caused by the (standard) Pi 2 overclocking feature in the Raspi setup.
    The dram shouldn’t be set at 500: that’s way too critical.
    Rather change the value to 483 in the ~/boot/config.txt

    Now, everything is ok, the issues are gone.
