    It's supposed to be xmame-sdl, not xmame.sdl.

    I can not have the sdl version run on my edgy-server box, have to install the x-window-system-core to run xmame in X. Each time I tried to run xmame-sdl, it gave me something like device permission issue, but if I did sudo xmame-sdl, I got device not found instead.

    Any idea? Is there a doc about ubuntu sdl config? I cannot google one. I heard some said the SDL is by default built in ubuntu.
