Cloning into 'PowerBlock'..... failure
lippythelog last edited by
This is in all probability a user error it is however proving quite vexing getting progress to where I have a fully working PowerBlock.
The hardware is installed and does switch the RaspPi on, the LED though is always slowly flashing even though RetroPi is up, completed the boot and is running but it never goes a solid always on light and will not switch off using the supplied switch.
Rasp Pi 3+ : RetroPi 4.5.1
I have followed the tutorials but am not having any progress in getting the relevant components installed on the RPi.
Please see below for what happens when running the quick install. Any suggestions in how to resolve this would be greatly received.

You can find the configuration file at /etc/powerblockconfig.cfg.
There seemed to be some sort of network problem. Does the problem still exist for you?
