    Re: HOWTO: Install zsnes with libao support on AMD64

    Hi. First post

    When I try to install for AMD64 (sudo apt-get install zsnes) I get the following message:

    Package zsnes is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package zsnes has no installation candidate
    Dunno what's wrong. The repos are allright and I made the update.

    I tried the zsnes32 but that only givis me segmentation error.

    I run Kubuntu AMD64 Gutsy.

    Everything worked fine for me up until the last part

    kymus@Shouxing:~$ zsnes -ad oss
    Audio driver selection invalid.
    I've checked the repo and I've got alsa-oss and libao 2 both installed.

    The only options I have available are auto and sdl.

    ZSNES likes to crash when I change the sound sampling rate.

    Never mind my first post.

    Anyone got any more suggestions about segmentation fault? I get the error but the suggestion in the first post does not work.

    @Dencrypt - Hmmm, it could have something to do with using Kubuntu, although I don't see why it would be any different. Can you post the exact output when you run zsnes32 in terminal?

    @Kymus - So you're using i386, and -ad oss does not seem to work? Hmmm, it may be an issue specific to your soundcard, especially considering that changing the sampling rates cause zsnes to crash on you. You can try running this command, and we can see if you have an incorrect library installed:
    Code:
    cd /usr/local/games/zsnes/
    ldd ./zsnes
    Also, I'm assuming you are using Gutsy? I can double-check and see if it's an issue with my i386 package.

    With ZSNES crashing.. it wasn't always like that... I've had it installed for 3 days now maybe. Originally I compiled it from the source available on the website. Then of course I was having some fuzzy sound, so I tried fidgeting with the sound sample rate and I found a rate at which it sounded better, but of course not perfect. Fast forward to about 24 hours later and when I would mess with it (in windowed mode) it would give me audio which wasn't to my liking and then I would fidget more and sometimes it would just go black. Nothing will terminate the window at this point (tried force quit and I tried killing itin the system monitor). Now, in full screen... oooooh, it doesn't like that very much . 95% of the time it will just go black and nothing will make my system respond.

    inded, I am using Gutsy

    Dunno if it means anything, but my sound is onboard, from my Foxconn NF4UK8AA

    Sure.

    dencrypt@dencrypt-desktop:~$ zsnes32
    Segmentation fault (core dumped)

    Re: HOWTO: Install zsnes with libao support on AMD64

    @Dencrypt - Well, I'm not entirely sure what is causing your segmentation fault here. I installed kubuntu-desktop in AMD64 Gutsy, and was able to run zsnes32 just fine. I guess there are several options you can pursue here:
    (1). Try some other zsnes binaries that I have compiled, located here:
    http://www.dfreer.org/~dfreer/zsnes/binaries/
    Since they are compiled with different methods, and you already have the 32-bit libraries needed to run the program, one of them may work for you. In particular, try zsnes 1.42.
    (2). Try downloading the official zsnes 32-bit .deb from the main repositories, and either extract the binary out of it, or install it like so:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture the_official_zsnes_package.deb
    (3). Get a Kubuntu Gutsy i386 Live CD, and try compiling zsnes specifically for your PC. I can help you through this method if you need help.

    @Kymus - It sounds like your sound card is to blame here. One thing you should try, is to move your ~/.zsnes/ folder elsewhere, and then try launching zsnes from there. It may be your configuration file is messed up from changing the sound settings, although I can't be sure.

    Hmmmm... must have been one of those rolling internet storms . Anyways, at least you got zsnes running, which is the main thing.
