@hansolo77 I think the retropie team is going to phase out any new binaries and updates for Jesse. The future is stretch. If your image on Jesse is running fine, there’s relly no reason to upgrade. But if you want the latest and greatest, it might be best to redo in stretch.
For anyone who may come across this same problem, to solve it I had to set everything up how I needed it including BIOS roms configurations, and only once I was happy did I run all of the updates and all appears to be working normally again now
@dankcushions I got my main system set up about 6 or 7 months ago and I haven't updated since. I have it pretty much how I want it and don't see a reason to change just yet. I do have another card for testing new stuff though, so I'm ready to go through it all again I might start my setup from scratch and leave out a few things I no longer want.
Which system? When you post about a problem try to be specific. I think its the MAME games who don't work? You did update the emulator which requires a newer romset. You need to rebuild the romset to the required version for the emulator and it will work.
@buzz thank you very much for the help! Quick question --
It seemed like the RetroPie setup script runs apt-get update and apt-get -y dist-upgrade before calling post_update and update_packages. Do I have that right? If so, should the order of the commands be?:
# do not run this often as it will put strain on our server - weekly should be enough
sudo __nodialog=1 ./retropie_packages.sh raspbiantools apt_upgrade
sudo __nodialog=1 ./retropie_packages.sh setup post_update
sudo __nodialog=1 ./retropie_packages.sh setup update_packages
Also, is there anything special about the raspbiantools apt_upgrade function(s) vs. just running?:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade
Just trying to figure out what is best before calling this "done". Thanks again!
The way I did it, choosing the desktop with autologin has worked so far. But now I know how to retrace my steps. Invariably, I post these an entire house away from where I'm working on the pi, so I never have the various screens right there next to me and I panic. Visual/experience learner over here :-D. Thanks again for your help. I actually posted a follow-up on the reddit thread of mine as well.
