First thanks for this wonderfull frontend. You did an amazing work with Attract-mode.

I have somes issue that i can t solve on my pi zero attract mode.
When i play a video snap with sound attract crash with an "597 Illegal instruction" (Whatever the audio video codec use by the video snap).
Same things when i try to play mp3 as Background music for exemple.

Device : Pi zero and W
System : retropie 4.4 or 4.5
OS : stretch
Layout: all
Files: .mp3,.mp4,*.avi

I fallow the same tutorial/instructions that is use for RPI3 :

cd ~; mkdir code
cd ~/code
echo "Install or Update FFMPEG with mmal HW Video Decoding"
sleep 2
git clone --depth 1 git://
cd ffmpeg
./configure --enable-mmal --disable-debug --enable-shared
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig
echo "Install or Update SFML-PI Dependencies!"
sleep 2
sudo apt-get install cmake libflac-dev libogg-dev libvorbis-dev libopenal-dev libfreetype6-dev libudev-dev libjpeg-dev libudev-dev libfontconfig1-dev
cd ~/code
echo "Install or Update SFML-PI!"
sleep 2
git clone --depth 1 sfml-pi
mkdir sfml-pi/build; cd sfml-pi/build
cmake .. -DSFML_RPI=1 -DEGL_INCLUDE_DIR=/opt/vc/include -DEGL_LIBRARY=/opt/vc/lib/ -DGLES_INCLUDE_DIR=/opt/vc/include -DGLES_LIBRARY=/opt/vc/lib/
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig
cd ~/code
echo "Install or Update Attract Mode"
sleep 2
git clone --depth 1 attract
cd attract
make USE_GLES=1
sudo make install USE_GLES=1

cd ~;rm -rf ./code/attract && rm -rf ./code/ffmpeg && rm -rf ./code/sfml-pi


echo "All done! Rebooting Now..."


sleep 3

sudo reboot now

There is no error on install. I don t know where the issue is but it is :p.
It same things if i install attract from experimental package.
Can you help me on this ?
