2：how to change the font size or clearer the menu ,font
anyone can help me ? or @yong give some advice about gpu drive
Current OS version does not (yet) include the Mali drivers as they do not yet support the SOC used. There was someone on another thread who offered to help on that as soon as he received his gameshell. Not sure if he has yet.
There does not appear to be any ability to just set the platform to armv7.
Anyone have any insight on how to install or load Mail drivers to the Gameshell so that the armv7-mali option might work? I can find drivers for mali all over I just am not familiar on how to install the drivers. Not a super Linux nerd yet.
Sorry if this is not helpful, but make sure to specify the path not just the file name. It also wants to be run with sudo in front of it. For example sudo ~/RetroPie-Setup/retropie_setup.sh.
This worked for me at least. I did not run it with any platform specified and it seems to install ok at first. Emulationstation can be run by adding a menu item in launcher that calls “emulationstation”.
Unfortunately the runcommand hangs on the cpi “loading…” screen every time it is invoked from within Emulationstation. Has anyone else run into this problem?
Upon further investigation the issue does not even seem specific to the retropie runcommand. Calling retropie_setup.sh directly from Emulationstation hangs. Wait it even hangs on the loading screen when called directly from GameShell launcher! It seems that anything that tries to bring up the terminal style “windows” used in retropie_setup.sh brings up the GameShell “loading…” screen instead. Can anyone shed light on why this is happening and how to avoid it?
