    Hi,

    I’ve been trying to get MAME working. I had no luck at all with the latest binary build, so I decided to do a fresh build from source. I started it on the 24th of December and it finished xmas day.

    I just tried it and there is a lot of broken emulators – many that worked in the binary build are no longer working. I looked into what command was being executed and tried it from the console myself. For example, here is what I executed to test the megadrive emulator:

    /home/pi/RetroPie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh 1 "/home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/RetroArch/installdir/bin/retroarch -L /home/pi/RetroPie/emulatorcores/picodrive/picodrive_libretro.so --config /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg --appendconfig /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/megadrive/retroarch.cfg /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/megadrive/ProjectMD.bin" 2>&1 | tee result.txt
    

    And here is the result:

    Powering on HDMI with explicit settings (CEA mode 1)
    /home/pi/RetroPie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh: line 13: /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/RetroArch/installdir/bin/retroarch: No such file or directory
    Powering on HDMI with preferred settings

    I checked, and it’s true: I have no installdir directory under the RetroArch emulator directory.

    Why would this be the case from a fresh, source-based installation? What can I do to rectify this?

    Can anyone help please? I just did a full source re-install making sure every option in the menu was checked (just in case unchecked items was the cause of the problem). The directory is still missing.

    Try this:

    sudo apt-get install libgles2-mesa-dev

    Then choose source based installation and only check RetroArch.
