Additional note for whoever might read this : a warning at the beginning, but loosely related only

-- Boost version: 1.60.0

Some of these libraries may not be found correctly.

this could be related : missing the instruction to effectively link against libboost_locale lib, but ... no idea where to fix it within cmake

Tried to compile yesterday, apparently against boost 1.60.0-1

After a compilation with some minor warnings, the link step fails :

`boost::locale::generator::generate(std::string const&) const'

How can this be fixed ?

more details : (full log available if needed)

emulationstation is asking for boost-libs v1.58.0, but in the Extra repos there is boost-libs v1.59.0.
Is there something I can do?

EDIT.: Turned out I just needed to recompile (:

emulationstation won't start on arch linux ARM - Raspberry Pi 2:

$ emulationstation
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::logic_error'
what(): basic_string::_S_construct null not valid
Aborted (core dumped)

For Raspberry Pi 2 support, I think you will also need to change

if [ "$CARCH" = "armv6h" ]


if [ "$CARCH" = "armv6h" -o "$CARCH" = "armv7h" ]

On Raspberry2 this error when I launch it!

lvl0: Error initializing SDL!
No available video device
lvl0: Renderer failed to initialize!
lvl0: Window failed to initialize!
