  • I bought a waveshare display which I had to download the drivers to make it work.I downloaded the drivers and everytime it booted up it appear that the root account is blocked, and on a trip I can't do anything with an SNES controller.
    What can I do to make it boot normally while having the drivers installed.

    Please add more information about your system, as requested in

    How did you install the drivers ? The root account doesn't have a password on the default Retropie image, you need to use the pi user and sudo to gain root access or run commands as root.
