Drastic not loading roms | Pi 4B
- Raspberry Pi 4B
- Retropie 4.7.13 installed on top of Raspbian Buster
- Started over SSH w/ screen
- 4k TV as the monitor and an old xbox one controller
- Forced to 1080p in boot/config.txt
When trying to boot roms with Drastic, I get sent back to the menu.
Parameters: Executing: xinit /dev/shm/retropie_xinitrc -- vt/ -keeptty (EE) Fatal server error: (EE) Unrecognized option: vt/ (EE) (EE) Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support at http://wiki.x.org for help. (EE) xinit: giving up xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused xinit: server error
Note: All the NDS roms are unzipped, and the rest of the emulators work. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.
This happens because you're launching EmulationStation from a screen/remote session. Start EmulationStation from the console or set it to auto-start - as explained in the installation document.
Oh, that works. Thanks! :]
One more question though, why does it only throw out this error for Drastic?
drasticis one of the emulator that needs an X session/desktop environment to work correctly and starting an Xserver over a remote session is not possible. There are a few other games/ports in a similar situation - they are set this way only if it's the only method of making it work or behave correctly.
Ah, I see. Thanks a lot then. ^^
