PPSSPP build fails on x86_64 ubuntu

  • The build for PPSSPP is failing for me, but lr-PPSSPP did build. Here are my details:

    Zotac ZBOX-BI320-U-W2 Desktop PC Celeron 2957U (Haswell)
    RetroPie Version Used: 4.1.14
    Controller used: Logitech Rumblepad 2
    Error messages received:

    -- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
    See also "/home/matt/RetroPie-Setup/tmp/build/ppsspp/ppsspp/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log".
    See also "/home/matt/RetroPie-Setup/tmp/build/ppsspp/ppsspp/CMakeFiles/CMakeError.log".
    make: *** No rule to make target 'clean'. Stop.
    make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
    Could not successfully build ppsspp - PlayStation Portable emulator PPSSPP (/home/matt/RetroPie-Setup/tmp/build/ppsspp/ppsspp/PPSSPPSDL not found).

    Log from ~/RetroPie-Setup/logs:
    Emulator: PPSSPP

    How to replicate the problem: This is on a fresh install of Ubuntu Desktop 16.04.2 AMD64.
    I Completed the basic install and then tried to do Manage optional packages. Any help would be appreciated.

    If I download a prebuilt binary from the PPSSPP website is it possible to integrate it into RetroPie?


  • I am also getting the same exact bug.

    I can't reproduce it here on my Ubuntu 17.04 x64 system - maybe it was a temporarily upstream issue. Please clear the PPSSPP source folder (from retropie-setup packages menu for ppsspp) and try again. You should also open a new topic with logs and provide more information about your system - the original post is 6 months old.
