    Hi there,

    Ran into a bug I’m not sure how to fix.

    I am attempting to follow the instructions here:,-say,-the-SNES-emulator-by-itself%3F

    I am running this command:
    /opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/bin/retroarch -L /opt/retropie/libretrocores/lr-imame4all/ /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/mame-mame4all/

    I am getting this error:
    Illegal instruction

    Any idea what that means?


    ## My setup
    * retropie-v3.0beta-rpi2
    * rasberry pi b+
    * x-arcade dual joystick (x 2)

    OK. I may have found a problem with the SD Image. I was using a Raspberry Pi Model B+. I switched my card to a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B+ and this bug went away.

    Or actually, probably my own ignorance. I thought that the model b+ was version 2.
