    Re: How-To: install pSX on AMD64

    I had a load of PS1 games which I donated to a charity shop to reclaim some space! I did however take images of some of my favourites to keep on a DVD (I'm obsessed with space it would seem ) for testing the emulators. So I'm stuck with these *.img.bz images now. I shall try your burning to disc idea when I get a chance and post back.

    Cheers ... Paul

    Re: How-To: install pSX on AMD64

    Sorry dfreer,

    But why don't you going to maintain it in ubuntu team?
    You could do much more if you propose it to Gutsy instead of buggy pcsx.

    What is the license of PSX BTW?

    PS sorry for my english.

    Hmmm. not a bad idea. I can't seem to find the license for pSX, other than the FAQ that states it is not open source (yet!). I send an email to the author asking him for permission to include it in the official repos, and details of the license pSX is listed under.

    Re: How-To: install pSX on AMD64

    Oh, you are making zsnes also..
    It would be also better then current gsnes9x.

    Thanks for your job,
    It would be a great pleasure for me to see them both in gutsy(7.10) or maybe next release.
    I mean repository of course...

    Re: How-To: install pSX on AMD64

    zsnes is a bit of a different issue I think.
    I haven't done much in the way of making packages, and although I seem to have done alright so far (except when I mess around with new things, sorry guys ), I'll have to modify the packages to go to the official repos. Not really much of a problem, just saying I don't have much experience.
    Then there is the issue of the current zsnes 1.42 in the official repos. I don't know why the original maintainer hasn't felt the need to upgrade to 1.51 (because it is a LOT better, no more scratchy sound!), but I'll probably need to get in contact with him and get his permission, and then get the ZSNES developer's permission as well (great software, just not a friendly lot, IMO).

    I can look into it, we've got a couple months before gutsy comes out. No promises though
    In the meantime, how has my repository and the pSX/zsnes packages working? anyone have any problems? I'm particularly interested if the new updates are getting pushed out via apt-get update/upgrade.

    EDIT: totally agree with gsnes9x... is it that hard to just copy zsnes UI?
    I really need to set my eyes into finding a good NES emulator for linux. I always thought the windows version of FCEUltra was pretty good, but the linux port is horrendous. Even with the guys working on gfceultra, it's UI is not that good. Too bad I don't have any programming skills myself

    dfreer,

    I'd like to wish you a good luck!
    I think all ubuntu users that enjoy emulation will really appreciate you job.
    For this moment we REALLY need good nes, snes and psx emulators.

    I think you can start from here:
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MOTU/Packages/New
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MOTU

    And don't forget, that it's better to merge debian package, than doing it yourself. So look on zsnes and psx in debian repository first.

    And.. Don't forget abot dates GutsyReleaseSchedule:
    June 21st DebianImportFreeze
    ...
    August 16th FeatureFreeze, UpstreamVersionFreeze
    ...
    August 30th NewPackagesFreezeUniverse

    PS Sorry, if i'm trying tell you, that you already know

    Re: How-To: install pSX on AMD64

    Oh wow! Thanks for the info, didn't know anything about it. Yeah, lemme check on a few things...

    I'm going to try to get pSX into Debian, but I don't know if it is possible without the source code. And I'll give the maintainer of zsnes for Debian an email, it looks like 1.51 made it to debian unstable, but x86 only

    Re: How-To: install pSX on AMD64

    Hmmm,

    I don't think you should create PSX debian package, if it doesn't exist.
    It's better to create our own. Anyway, please, ask any questions in IRC or Ubuntu Development forum.
    It could be also usefull to contact other emu packages maintainer.

    Good luck!

    I don't see why not? Ubuntu owes a lot of things to debian, it only helps the community to add it to both debian and ubuntu.

    Re: How-To: install pSX on AMD64

    1) Because our aim is Ubuntu.
    2) Because it could take some additional helpful time and energy.
    3) Because you should wait for approval from Debian team also.
    4) Because in future you should maintain them both.

    IMHO maximum you can help debian community is create Ubuntu package as soon as possible and then post id Debian form (or somewhere else) request for this package in Debian repository. Debian community will include it if they like it. It's quite clear I think.

    Another thing if you a Debian user first of all...
