Make your Raspberry to an retro console with Raspbian and piMAME

The installation is very easy.

  • Download the raspbian image
  • Copy the image to the sdcard

/dev/sdd is your sdcard device. you must look which device your sdcard is.

sudo dd if=wheezy-raspbian.img of=/dev/sdd
  • Start the raspberry with the raspian

  • Configure it

sudo raspi-config

Go to the expand_rootfs and expand the filesystem to the whole sdcard.
The important steps are finish. If you want you can change now your language, keyboard settings and all what you want. Then restart your pi.

Now we install our piMAME

  • Install GIT
sudo apt-get install git
  • Clone the piMAME installer

The best place is /home/pi/

git clone
  • Start the installer
cd pimame_installer
sudo ./
  • Wait ~ 30min ^^

  • Restart your raspberry

  • Now you have a raspberryPI with raspian and piMAME
