    Re: SDLMAME v0.108

    Usually you install programs with
    Code:
    make install
    This usually installs the binary into /usr/bin

    I prefer to use checkinstall instead of that to get a .deb package that can easily then be installed and deleted using package management. The package manager is also able to show exactly what files belong to which package.

    Re: SDLMAME v0.108

    OK, that description was a little brief, so here is a little more detail.

    SDL MAME doesnt need to be "installed". It has been designed (beautifully IMHO) to be more like the windows version.

    When the build has completed, you will see the binary in the root directory called mamepm. Here is what I see:

    Code:
    admin@mario:~/Desktop/sdlmame0108$ pwd
    /home/admin/Desktop/sdlmame0108
    admin@mario:~/Desktop/sdlmame0108$ ls -l makefile
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 admin admin 11629 2006-08-12 10:51 makefile
    admin@mario:~/Desktop/sdlmame0108$ ls -l mamepm
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 admin admin 34416765 2006-08-31 14:56 mamepm
    The executable that you want to run is mamepm. Here is the basic usage:

    Code:
    admin@mario:~/Desktop/sdlmame0108$ ./mamepm -help
    M.A.M.E. v0.108 (Aug 31 2006) - Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator
    Copyright (C) 1997-2006 by Nicola Salmoria and the MAME Team
    ....
    To get a basic configuration file, you would do something like this:

    Code:
    admin@mario:~/Desktop/sdlmame0108$ ./mamepm -createconfig
    admin@mario:~/Desktop/sdlmame0108$ head mamepm.ini
    
    #
    # CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
    #
    readconfig                1
    skip_gameinfo             0
    
    #
    # PATH AND DIRECTORY OPTIONS
    #
    So, now it built OK, you need some ROMS to test with! There are actually some free ones available legally at mame.net. Be sure to download this as is to the roms subdirectory, so MAME can see them:

    Code:
    admin@mario:~/Desktop/sdlmame0108/roms$ pwd
    /home/admin/Desktop/sdlmame0108/roms
    admin@mario:~/Desktop/sdlmame0108/roms$ wget http://www.mame.net/roms/robby.zip

    To run this game fullscreen, you would type:
    Code:
    admin@mario:~/Desktop/sdlmame0108$ pwd

    admin@mario:~/Desktop/sdlmame0108$ ./mamepm robby

    As posted on the SDLMame forum, I uploaded the source package on REVU for reviews.
    I hope they will be included in the official universe/multiverse repository in the future.

    Binary are also available for dapper, edgy and feisty here.
