In this case, both times this has happened I’ve been unable to get out of the loop using the keyboard. The only way is to wipe the ad card and restore from my image backup.
If it happens again I suppose I could plug the sd card into another Linux machine and try to fix the permissions like that, but I think this happens when something goes wrong with the sub rom transfer. Is there a way of knowing when it’s finished transferring files so it’s safe to reboot.
Many thanks for the support by the way.stuartfoxParticipant11/27/2015 at 15:39Post count: 11stuartfoxParticipant11/27/2015 at 15:23Post count: 11
Thanks, I was aware of that but I forgot to do it on one of the sticks I was using so there were two issues.
I’ve now run into this a second time, reboot loop that I can’t get out of : I’ve enclosed a screenshot. Seems to be caused by a permissions error in Roms directory after using usb transfer service.stuartfoxParticipant11/13/2015 at 04:29Post count: 11stuartfoxParticipant11/02/2015 at 02:24Post count: 11
OK – just to add – the errors above appear on the TFT screen, but when a monitor is connected as well via HDMI, Emulation Station runs as normal on this while the TFT screen continues to display the errors in text.stuartfoxParticipant11/02/2015 at 02:15Post count: 11
I’ve followed this on top of Adafruits Wheezy image (https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-pitft-3-dot-5-touch-screen-for-raspberry-pi/easy-install )
After the restart when all steps were complete I lost use of USB keyboard so I SSH’d into the pi and tried to launch emulationstation.
Got these errors
Could not find <gameList> node in gamelist “/home/pi/.emulationstation/gamelists/wonderswan/gamelist.xml”!
Even though I had a couple of roms installed. Also couldn’t find the file location specified in the errors.
Sorry – I have the feeling these issues are pretty simple but I can’t get my head around it. I assumed it would be easier to get RetroPie working with one of the screens I have.stuartfoxParticipant11/01/2015 at 14:25Post count: 11
The retropie image boots and runs fine with an hdmi monitor attached. Trying to add the adafruit drivers causes the issue.
I’ve now tried starting out with Adafruits raspian image which does work with the screen then installing Retropie with the setup script. Not able to do it though:
git clone git://github.com/petrockblog/RetroPie-Setup.git
Cloning into ‘RetroPie-Setup’…
