@thepigamer not sure if its recompiling it completely, i was just apt-get update and updating what comes up, thats how i found that raspberrypi-kernel is where the sound breaks.
which is why when i do the update through the Retropie setup and let it update the OS and drivers that the sound stops.
since when im dont with my build its not going to be on the network, im not going to worry about it. since everything working just fine. i was more on a mission to find out what was causing the problem
