@pfoff The error is a very generic one and it's unlikely it's something related to SDL, looks like there's a problem with your system. Check dmesg for any related errors - especially hardware ones.
With only 2Gb or RAM, you'd better off using the 32bit version of the OS, you won't gain very much with a 64 bit system. Also, on PC all packages are built from source, so there's no need to re-compile manually any package.
Would creating an image require me to have an SD Card reader?
I believe that has been the source of the majority of my current hurdles, however I liked the flexibility of having NOOBS just while im getting to grips with the RPI3 and what im planning to use it for.
Cheers for the advice though.
By disconnecting my Pi from the internet, I was able to install the Jessie Version 8 of Raspbian, otherwise it was going online to retrieve Stretch Version 9
From here on out - it's a standard install, Binary options were available, and now its all setup.
Seen as I already have Pixel Desktop Installed how do I enable the Pixel Desktop Option in PORTS without "Installing Pixel Desktop" via the RetroPie-Setup?
It didn't seem to work last time.
Okay! Thanks very much, I indeed noticed it only could be installed from binaries! So I'll try that!
If I install it through that will I be able to use it through the EmulationStation?
Is there any documentation? I've something about configuration file editting..
