Installing RetroFE in Raspbian Stretch
« on: May 13, 2019, 03:14:27 AM »
I am using a Pi 3B+ with Raspbian Stretch using the line:
Code: [Select]
bash <(curl -s https://bitbucket.org/phulshof/retrofe/raw/default/Scripts/Raspi2/install.sh)Install is NOT working. It makes a RetroFE folder in root but not all is there. I have tried with and without SU access. Can anyone advise?

Iím afraid I havenít looked at that script in ages. I have no idea what the current status is. What would you say is missing?

Most glaringly a lack of an executable but it would appear that the core folder is empty as well.

The core folder is only used for the Windows libraries. The Linux executable should be in the root directory of RetroFE.

Odd, the executable should be built as part of the compile step.

I'm using the official Stretch image on a Pi 3B+ FWIW

Is there an archive I can extract to my installed folder that would replace whatever is missing?

No, though I guess I could try and build one sometime. Basically the bitbucket checkout contains all required files except for the executable. That one's created from the source code compile (in Linux it's just called retrofe, without extension). There's a Python script that gathers it all together.

Could you screenshot the contents of the directory it's created for you?
