  2. Wagic: The Homebrew compilation help

    Has anyone been able to compile this game for use in Ubuntu? I can get it to compile on 64-bit Arch, but I need a 32-bit binary for a friend and I am having no luck building it on Ubuntu.

    CPU recommendations from PCSX2's page

    [ubuntu] Re: CPU 100% - Phantom usage

    I forgot about Chromium zombies... I have seen that before myself.

    100% CPU from a fresh boot implies one of the startup process is to blame. Does system monitor show anything? Any zombie...

    Re: PCSX-R Saving and Bios issue

    I have gotten memory cards to work with the inbuilt BIOS (and it saves/loads far faster than normal), but I found that the game saves get corrupted very frequently so you have to get a real BIOS.

    Re: how to install epsxe on Ubuntu 12.04?

    epsxe is closed-source and it hasn't been updated in more than 4 years... even if you could get it to run, it would surely have lots of problems.

    The programs you mention use GTK (Gnome) rather than Qt (KDE), so they don't follow your normal theme settings.
