    as my system was pretty unstable, and couldn’t even shutdown or reboot (it just showed a blank screen with the prompt blinking) I tried to do a full binary install from retropie setup…

    after a while, it stucks on “unpacking libsdl1.2-dev (1.2.15-11rpi) over (1.2.15.11rpi)…”

    and nothing else. I’ve let it running for one hour, still there. the prompt is still blinking below, but nothing else happens.

    any idea?

    Possible you may have a corrupt SD card

    so… start from scratch, maybe?

    have you overclocked ?

    do you have a sufficient power supply?

    I would try reimaging – but instability may be due to issues like this.

    I bought it for the raspberry, a power supply of 5v/2A

    When I upgraded to 3.5 I made an image of the 3.2 version I already had setup and running, so while I find what’s the problem I’ll use that image.

    Everything the same, configs, roms, emulators…
    With 3.2 everything works fine. shutdown, reboot, shaders…
    With 3.4 or 3.5 if I choose shutdown or reboot it just seems to be waiting for something, blank screen, prompt blinking… shaders just won’t work, no matter what I try, fps is shown when I press 1p start on lr-mame2010, and don’t know why, if I press my button 6 a mame-like menu is shown on lr-mame2010

    it is saving the gameslists – you need to wait. (you must have a lot of roms)

    I may introduce a hard shutdown as it did before – but meta data could be lost then.

    shaders do work – but must be configured from the configuration editor. (hotkeys wont work due to a changed file structure)

    I think I’ll use 3.2 for now, as I have it portable and can connect to different tvs, so it looks nice on a 56″ hdmi led tv, but look horrible on a small 14″ crt tv… I need a way to switch them on the fly :)
