For the 4.6.1 you should have the binary installation available - why aren't you installing from binary ?
@mitu for retroarch it seems only source installation option is available
for retroarch it seems only source installation option is available
There is a binary installation available for Pi4.
What OS image did you use for installation ?
@mitu i am using stock raspbian
Linux raspberrypi 4.19.97-v7l+ #1294 SMP Thu Jan 30 13:21:14 GMT 2020 armv7l GNU/Linux
Which version - the Lite or the Desktop version ? Did you do any re-configuration for the system ?
@mitu i believe it was the lite version and i did not reconfigure any system settings. The source.list is also pointing to raspbian buster.
I think the reason your install doesn't work is because you modified your
config.txtand removed the GL driver overlay - loaded by default and which is necessary for RetroPie to work on the Pi4 model.
Any reason you're not using the RetroPie image ?

@mitu Can you help check if my config.txt is wrongly configured?
The reason why I insist on installing on existing os is that I am using hard drive for os and I try not to flash the image as it means I need to overwrite the hard drive.

@Floppy No, it's not correct - you disabled the necessary overlay for the GL driver, which is unsupported on the Pi4.
@mitu you mean i should uncomment #dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d?
@mitu nvm, I shall just reflash the retropie pre-built image.
