RetroPie 4.3.17 Stretch images



  • @mitu I’m using normal HDMI. It just recently started happening after about 2 weeks of using this image. I think it’ll have to do with something I recently installed. I’ll dig into it tonight and see if I can pinpoint it to something. I’ve never had it happen with my Jessie install but I’ve also have done more with the stretch one. I’ll let you know what I find but thought I’d run it past your brains first.

    @matt-teix If it worked ok after install, then stopped working, there must be a configuration issue. Re-trace your steps and you might find out why - and if in doubt, save your ROMs/metadata/music and re-image the card.



  • Anyone using composite here? As I previously stated, omxplayer within ES is completely busted and verified on clean setups on several devices (3B/3B+) :(



  • I have issues with Atari ST emulator Hatari (non RetroArch version). Each time joypad is connected emulator quits to ES when clicking on "joystick" button in the Hatari GUI.
    I have tested it with both wired and wireless DualShock 3, DualShock 4, Xbox One S pad and PS3 Shanwan on RetroPie 4.3.17 Stretch RPi 3B+ (tried Hatari installation using binaries then from the source with the same effect). All mentioned above joypads work flawlessly on 4.3 Jessie RPi3B.

    Only way to get to the joystick section menu in Hatari GUI is with no joypad connected to the RPi.



  • Hello all. I'm new to all this, but I've tinkered with linux in the past so I have some basic knowledge of how to use the command window.

    My question is this. I have the Raspberry Pi 3 B Plus. I'm using a 32 GB micro SD card. I already installed Raspbian full with NOOBS. I want to install Retro Pi on the same SD Card I have Raspbian on. I wanted to know if I can follow the "Installing on top of an existing OS" instructions or do I have to do something different since I'm using the Raspberry Pi 3 Plus.



  • @mitu Hi, it is my 2nd week now with my first Raspberry (3 B+) and had already nice experiences with it using Retropie with almost no problems (at least none I couldn't resolve thanks to the great community), but now I had a problem installing the normal ppsspp emulator via source (had lr-ppsspp before, and uninstalled before trying to install the "standalone" ppsspp). During the installation after some minutes the following error occurs:
    ( 3801.261243) Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual(..)
    3801. 5165 Unable t handl kerne NULL ointer er ference(...)
    nothing happened anymore, had to reset/turn off.
    I have been using a version I downloaded from buyzero.de(https://download.pi3g.com).

    Now I saw that here is also a version to download.
    Am I right when I expect this "beta" version to be updated one day to full 4.4 version via internet without having to format the SD?
    One thing I am very confused of is the so called "ssh (-session)". What is it, how can I select between those modes and is it recommended to not start it from a SSH session to avoid errors? For me it would be very nice and kind of important that ES can start automatically on boot like it is now.

    Yes

    SSH is just another way of accessing remotely the Pi system for running commands or copying files - https://retropie.org.uk/docs/SSH/. You don't need SSH access for normal operations.



  • @mitu Thank you very much for the fast response :)
    As soon as I am at home again I am going to put the stretch image on the SD.
    (Hopefully this time the ppsspp installation via source will also work.)

    @hazey91 Install from binary if available, no need to compile again.



  • @mitu is it just a rumor that installing from source can provide a better performance?



  • @hazey91 It depends on if a package has up to date binaries. If it doesn't, source will be more up to date.

    Also, when is 4.4 coming out? I thought it was supposed to be this week.



  • @hazey91 not for specific harware such as the Raspberry Pi. It might help if you compile on a PC with certain CPU instructions. The only benefit from compiling from source is that you might get a cutting edge build that has not been available in binary yet.



  • Awesome, thanks guys :)

    (By the way, I didn't like the original power supply I received with my Rpi3b+, even if it was doing his job. I want to try some overclocking soon and I am not sure if it can hold it.
    So I tried a belkins 2.4A 12W for 17€. But already at simple operations it showed the yellow flash in the right upper corner. So I took a stronger one and I have a quite good feeling with it. But I kept the belkins usb-cable.
    https://www.hama.com/00178238/hama-qualcomm-quick-charge-30-charger-black?srcLang=0&targetLang=1
    It has 3A @ 3.6-6-5V and up to 19,5W.)



  • @hazey91 I don't really understand what do they mean by "3,6-6,5 V/6,5-9 V/9-12 V". The Raspberry Pi is designed with 5.1V in mind (the input current is safe at 3A). Sounds a bit risky, since I don't get how it selects the correct voltage for a device without any visible selector.



  • @hazey91
    Be careful, USB chargers and RPi power adapters are often not equals.
    Chargers tend to disregard power output regularity (you don't need regular power to charge a device), where dedicated power adapters focus on maintaining a steady output (which is critical for the RPi, but cost more to produce).

    Topic is now unpinned as 4.4 is released - https://retropie.org.uk/2018/04/retropie-4-4-is-released/



  • oops I meant 3A @ 3,6-6.5V
    just wanted to post the original infos in general.
    hmh yes you could be right.. but so far no error occured with it. I thought it can't be overvoltaged because the Pi would take only what it needs?



  • Does anyone know how to get the WI-FI working.
    I tried filling in the information in wpa_supplicant.conf but still doesn't work.



  • @moekatz2

    You have to set the WiFi country in the raspi-config menu.

    Edited this post out, because I didn't read the whole post and literally contributed to nothing...

    @moekatz2 Try running sudo rfkill unblock all from the command line and see if Wifi connection starts working.
