Cannot install reicast (Python and dependencies)
I seem to be having trouble installing reicast. I get this error when I try:
"Could not install package(s): python-dev python-pip alsa-oss."
I'm running RetroPie 4.6.4 on Ubuntu 20.02 LTS.
I think has been fixed some time ago - are you sure you're on version 4.6.4 ?
lr-flycastshould be preferred on a PC installation, but
reicastshould be installable also.
Update your RetroPie-Setup script and see if installation from source works.
That worked! Reicast is now installed, although I'm just getting booted back to the gamelist when trying to launch a game using either flycast or reicast. I'll try and troubleshoot that problem now.
@goestohollywood Check if you have the right BIOS files copied to the right location.
dc_flash.binplaced at /home/RetroPie/BIOS/dc. I see under the Docs that it's supposed to be at /home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS/dc, but is that the same for Ubuntu? My PSX BIOS files are located at /home/RetroPie/BIOS/ and work fine.
Normally, the BIOS folder is set to
$HOME/RetroPie/BIOS, so even if you're on Ubuntu, they shouldn't be under
/home/RetroPie/BIOS. Is your Ubuntu user named 'RetroPie' ?

My user is "hollywoodarcade", so everything's located here:
I'm guessing I'm probably in the wrong directory
