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:
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.
