Request: Latest MAME

#1 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.
