SDL Build Error with on Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya

  • Basically, whenever I try to install RetroPie on Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya, it returns an error about not being able to build SDL2 (Could not sucessfully build SDL2 /home/tunnel/RetroPie-Setup/tmp/build/sdl2/libsdl2-dev_2.0.5+5_amd64.deb not found). I am assuming RetroPie is attempting to build 2.0.5 when the package libsdl2-dev installed from apt is at version 2.0.4+dfsg1-2ubuntu2. Is there a way to fix this build error? Or possibly a way to install a newer version of libsdl2-deb from apt?

    The full log:

  • I edited
    scriptmodules/ local own_sdl2=1
    scriptmodules/ local own_sdl2=0

    This just uses the default sdl2 installed on the system. Seems to work ok
