Gxmame help in SUSE 10.0

Post by kingbuzzo » Mon Mar 06, 2006 11:07 pm

has anyone been able to get gxmame to run on SUSE 10.0?

I've only just switched to linux and it seems to be a bit tricky.

I installed Xmame, then GXmame, and gxmame keeps giving me the charming "no xmame executables found kthxbye" message.

currently installed are....

gxmame-0.34b-1.i386.rpm
and
xmame-base-0.104-1rx3.i586.rpm


anyone familiar with this?

thanks,

Kingbuzzo.

What are you using to install? Synaptic, YaST, apt4rpm?

well I've pretty much given up on gxmame.

I reinstalled xmame from source, still couldn't figure out how to run any games with the stupid thing, so I tried xmame and that seems to work with a couple games here and there.

only problem is that it wont let me config the joystick unless xmame works with joystick, and I can't understand the directions how. It's all very confusing and no help sites or readmes anywhere will tell you exactly what to do.

here's what xmame.x11 -help says:

*** Input device options ***
-joytype / -jt <int> Select type of joystick support to use:
0 No joystick

I assume I have to do something like

xmame.x11 -jt /dev/input/js0

but this isn't recognized at all

is anyone familiar with xmame enough to help me out?
