Unable to Boot on PC

I’m completely new to Lakka and very new to Linux, so I’m hoping someone can help me out with getting my new computer up and running. I built a new computer, intending it to be a dedicated retro gaming box.

Install on a new HD from a USB drive worked easy, but I’ve been completely unable to do anything from there. I’ve finally managed to boot live from the USB with SSH so that I can get the error logs, but I’ve been unable to advance past the Lakka splash screen in either environment.

Here’s some logs!

Any help someone could give me would be very much appreciated.

This suggests that it can’t find your GPU. You said it works fine with the USB live environment?

Have you tried turning your computer off and on again? Also if you just built the computer, and the hard drive is new, you could always clear everything off your hard drive and start over.

It won’t launch past the splash screen at all. I don’t have a video card, just the integrated graphics Intel UHD 610.

That’s because the UHD 610 integrated graphics aren’t compatible. Yet anyway. Hunter was right. If you got an old graphics card lying around, or you could try one of the experimental builds that is designed to work with the Nvidia cards and see if that can bypass your segmentation fault. I doubt it, but it’s worth a shot.

Well, that’s super disappointing. I don’t know how I missed that information. Of course, maybe I’m an idiot, because I can’t even find the other builds anywhere on the site. Could someone point me in the right direction?

I don’t have an old graphics card, so if I can’t get an experimental builds to work, I guess I might as well just get Windows and install Retroarch. Honestly, I don’t really have the money for either option right now.

Thanks for your help.
