Problems building Dolphin on x86 Version

  • Pi Model or other hardware: Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya 64-bit on Thinkpad T430s
    RetroPie Version Used:4.2.20 & 4.3
    Built From: RetroPie X86 setup script on top of fresh install of Linux Mint
    Error messages received:
    make: *** No rule to make target 'install'. Stop.

    Emulator: (Name of emulator - if applicable) dolphin

    I am getting an error when attempting to install doplphin from the experimental packages on RetroPie. Looking through the log, there are several errors throughout the log, not sure which might be causing the domino effect that leads to the final error listed above.

    Here is the complete install log:

    I have tried this both a Mac Mini running Ubuntu 17.04 and a Thinkpad running Mint 18.2. I have tried running it from my home home and work networks. This problem has been happening for me for at least a week now.

    Qt/externals takes a long time to clone, not sure if that is where things are getting stuck at or not?

    Not sure if this is an issue with the dolphin source or with the setup script.

    It seems that cmake cannot find your Qt5 libraries - if installed. Try manually installing the dependencies ( and try again running the installation from RetroPie.

  • @mitu Installing the dependancies listed on the link you provided seems to gave done the trick. Thanks so much!

    For those who are curious, I ran the following command as suggested by the Dolphin installation page (cut and pasted here for your convenience).

    sudo apt install cmake pkg-config git libao-dev libasound2-dev libavcodec-dev libavformat-dev libbluetooth-dev libenet-dev libgtk2.0-dev liblzo2-dev libminiupnpc-dev libopenal-dev libpulse-dev libreadline-dev libsfml-dev libsoil-dev libsoundtouch-dev libswscale-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev libwxbase3.0-dev libwxgtk3.0-dev libxext-dev libxrandr-dev portaudio19-dev zlib1g-dev libudev-dev libevdev-dev "libpolarssl-dev|libmbedtls-dev" libcurl4-openssl-dev libegl1-mesa-dev libpng-dev qtbase5-private-dev
