Request: Latest MAME

Post by Raitsa » Fri Sep 21, 2018 4:55 am

Hi guys, I am hoping the latest MAME (0.201) gets added to the MX 17 repository.

I can try rebuilding the Debian Experimental 0.201 version.

Update: this is one of the ones that fails to build in my convenient and faster pbuilder setup, but it did succeed on the first 64-bit build in Virtual Box after a long compile process. Now setting up a 32-bit build.

32-bit builds fail, which I seem to remember they also did years ago, with a "virtual memory exhausted: can not allocate memory" error, even though they are using real memory in Virtual Box. The 0.200 version in Buster also fails the same way. Trying an OBS build to see what happens there: https://build.opensuse.org/package/show ... ports/mame


For now, I'll send up the 64-bit 0.201 builds to the test repo.

Hey there Stevo, I am hoping to see MAME 0.205 update in the repos because of these very cool release infos:

"There are hundreds more Commodore 64 cassettes in the software list now"

Debian upstream just has .203, but I see that deb-multimedia has .205, so maybe I can rebuild those sources.

Well, I tried getting the newer 0.205 source with a "get-orig-source" in the 0.201 debian/rules file, which worked, but when I tried using the 0.203 debian folder as a template for 0.205, builds failed in pbuilder, sbuild, and Virtual Box with some compiler errors.

Let me see if I can at least build 0.203 before I tackle converting 0.205 from deb-multimedia.

Would it be possible to have Negatron, an intuitive front-end for MAME on the repos as well?
