    So after a lot of back and forth between single OS sd cards, multibooting with noobs and berryboot I’ve decided to go with berryboot because it has CEC enabled for the OS selection, meaning I can get by without hooking up a mouse/keyboard.

    my setup is as follows
    -16GB sd card
    -berryboot loader with openelec and raspbian net-installed
    -16GB flash drive containing roms
    -wiimote/classic controller (i haven’t worried about setting this up yet)

    i loaded the raspbian OS to the command line and ran the retropie setup from source.

    made a couple of post retropie-setup mods
    – edited /etc/fstab to automount my flash drive by label to /media/games
    – LABEL=GAMES /media/games vfat defaults 0 0
    – edited ~/.emulationstaton/es_systems.cfg and pointed all the path vars to /media/games/roms/XX
    – find and replace “/home/pi/RetroPie/roms” with “/media/games/roms”

    after all is said and done it appears retroarch hasn’t been properly installed. emulation station loads as expected and all the roms are listed. however for every system when i try to load a game i’m sent to a black screen briefly and then returned to the game listing.

    so i exited emulation station with F4 and saw for each game i loaded an error had appeared in the console
    “…/run_command.sh: line 13: /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/RetroArch/installdir/bin/retroarch: No such file or directory”

    i ran the retropie-setup a second time to attempt to reinstall just retroarch to no avail.

    i’ve attached the debug.log file but i think the section at the top shows the issue is definitely that retroarch wasn’t properly installed.

    has anyone come across this issue? any help would be appreciated. i’ve been working at this setup for about a week now and my brain is fried.

    if i can get everything working I’ll post the set of instructions for my installation in the peoples projects thread.

    making some progress here (maybe)

    i’ve started working through ~/RetroPie-Setup/scriptmodules/emulators.shinc to manually go through the retroarch setup commands

    starting with the em_install_retroarch() function (~ line 716)
    – changed to the RetroArch dir
    $ cd ~/RetroPie/emulators/RetroArch
    – pulled the repository to make sure it was up to date (it was)
    $ git pull
    – ran the configure command
    $ ./configure --prefix="/home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/RetroArch/installdir"

    ====
    – make (died with an error)
    $ make
    – last five lines of make output (i’ve attached the full output of the make command)
    ====
    /opt/vc/lib/libEGL.so: undefined reference to’gl20_client_state_init’
    /opt/vc/lib/libEGL.so: undefined reference to ‘glxx_buffer_info_get’
    /opt/vc/lib/libEGL.so: undefined reference to ‘glxx_client_IsFramebuffer’
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    make: *** [retroarch] Error 1
    ====
    – i’m not sure what to do here. the error isn’t exactly verbose. it looks to me like libEGL is broken or not installed correctly?
    – i continued on like it never happened (just in case by some miracle the error didn’t matter)

    moving on to the em_configureRetroArch() function (~ line 644)
    – the first line is a cp command but fails because the install dir hadn’t been created yet so i created the directory
    $ mkdir -p /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/RetroArch/installdir/bin
    – next copy the retroarch-zip file
    $ cp /home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/supplementary/retroarch-zip /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/RetroArch/installdir/bin/
    – the remaining part of em_configureRetroArch() seemed to have worked as expected during the original setup (i didn’t really test if the ensureKeyValue commands worked properly)

    *** my attachments don’t seem to be uploading properly. (debug.log and the failed make output)
    if you think they may be of some help I can post the full output here (i’d rather not clutter up the page if that’s not necessary)

    i once again ran retropie-setup. this time i did a binary update instead of reinstalling from source. looks like that solved my issues.
