I’d like to add a boot menu to my Pi, such as this one: https://github.com/dweeber/bootmenu
Currently I am running the RetroPie SD card image, where EmulationStation is set to automatically start up. I’d rather have a simple terminal, and later on put in the boot menu script as seen above, where I’ll press “1” for “startx”, “2” for “emulationstation” and just exit to command line when I don’t do a thing, for example.
Until I have this script implemented, I’d like to simply stay in the command line on boot. How do I achieve this?karlossParticipant06/16/2013 at 16:36Post count: 177
run the retropie script, and selete setup, then disable emulationstation on boot option.jefflebowskiParticipant06/16/2013 at 17:12Post count: 5
Thanks, that worked fine. Could you also guide me in the right direction on how to implement that boot menu?jefflebowskiParticipant06/16/2013 at 20:46Post count: 5
The first reboot worked fine, but now a few hours later I tried to reboot, then I saw the “RetroPie Project” Splash Screen of EmulationStation followed by … nothing. All I see is a black screen. Pressing F4 or typing “startx” or anything else does exactly nothing.petrockblogKeymaster06/22/2013 at 13:06Post count: 1828
You should be able to change to the second terminal via Ctrl+Alt+F2 for debugging etc.
You might want to report this issue at the Github repository.jefflebowskiParticipant06/22/2013 at 13:48Post count: 5
Starting the second console works and lets me enable ES at boot time so I can use the Pi again, thank you.
But I have no idea how I can actually disable it. I have tried it another time with a clean install from the image, where I got the same problem: black screen after splash.
