Hi Guys

I'm very new to Gentoo I think it's a great OS.

I'm having problems getting Xmame, Advancemame and SDLMAME to work.

XMAME: 1.06

Now I'll explain with Xmame first, I install this typing emerge xmame right and when I run xmame mk2.zip or xmame nbajam.zip it says files not found
But the games are in the right directory. When I running xmame by itself it looks for some robbyrun files, is it possible that it's loaded with one game so it does not like loading any others?

AdvanceMAME 1.06

Now Advance mame I install this last night I ran '"emerge advancemame.ebuild"" and it installed but when I run admame mk2.zip it says game not supported and I've tried about 6 or 7 games and same thing can anyone help here?

SDLMAME 0112


SDLMAME I've been unable to get this installed, I have read a few forum msg and still no luck. I've been to this site and downloaded the ebuild https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=145023.

But when I run the emerge ebuild it says mantiage file missing or something, can someone please help me get one of these mame's to work.


Sorry for going on so much guys, but it's quite frustrating I love mame so much, I'd just love to play it on the ps3.


Running following:

PS3 Gentoo installed
Using KDE 3.5 Windows in 720P

I also forgot to mention I used this guide to set Gentoo up on my PAL ps3.

To use xmame you need to run the xmame.SDL file. So navigate to it in the terminal and run it. So it would be like /usr/games/bin/xmame/xmame.SDL then naviagate to the roms so if it would be like /usr/games/bin/roms/dskt.zip. These directories aare made offhand so your ROMS folder moght be somewhere else so navigate to where it is. What you will be typing into the terminal is something like this
Code:
 /usr/games/bin/xmame/xmame.SDL  /usr/games/bin/roms/(name of rom here)


You can also emerge gxmame its a GUI for mame makes it alot easier.
