Mame Installation Instructions
« on: May 06, 2008, 10:54:10 pm »
I was the test pig for installing the mame plugin that TSCHAK wrote.  It works quite well, very freaking impressive actually.  I have posted the directions for exactly how to install mame.  There are 49 steps listed, and I tried to write it down in every detail.  So please follow these directions and test the system.  Any errors with the install instructions or problems, let me know in the irc channel.  Any issues with the mame plugin itself, obviously let tschak know. 

the directions are at the wiki page   http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Mame_installation

now a couple of hints that are not there,  5 (not F5) is the add credits, 1 and 2 are the start games.  Enjoy!

First of all, Thnx for sharing the great work!

I am trying to install MAME on my linuxMCE but I ran into an error following the steps on the wiki.

I followed the wiki step by step up to the step where I need to make the lmce_game, (it is right after copying the libWindowUtils.so to the usr/pluto/lib.

then it stops there. no liblmce_game.so was generated.
Can someone give me a tip on this issue?  ???

I do not have an amd64 to test here, so I can't reproduce the problem, but it looks like you're trying to mix amd64 libs and i386 libs together...can someone else help to try to resolve this issue?

Thnx for the quick reply Thom~~ ;D ;D

I fixed the "relocation R_X86_64_32 ..." problem by removing all the .o files in the db_wrapper folder. (I don't know if this will create some strange behaviors or not... ::) ???)

I continued to follow the steps in the wiki but I ran into another problem in the "Additional Libs" section.

The link "http://rbelmont.mameworld.info/sdlmame0125.zip" returns a google main page, (I don't know what is going on with this...) so I downloaded it off this link instead: "http://minimyth.org/download/garchive/sdlmame0125.zip".

I unzipped it and jumped into the folder trying to make, and i got this error:
Code: [Select]
Compiling src/osd/sdl/sdlsync.c...
cc1: warnings being treated as errors
In file included from src/osd/sdl/osinline.h:10,
                 from src/osd/sdl/sdlsync.c:29:

src/emu/eminline.h:351: warning: cast to pointer from integer of different size
make: *** [obj/sdl/mame/osd/sdl/sdlsync.o] Error 1

I am going to hack on it now and let you guys know how it goes~ :D

It turned out to be the mame's make file was defined to be used for X86. (This is what you get for not reading the readme file first... :-X)

I got MAME installed... Thanx again for the great work and guide... (now i need to find some rom to test it...  ;D ;D ;D)

From the look of it, yeah, I can see "MAME" on my main screen orbiter.
Now i will put an actual ROM on the system and see if it can find it.
I will keep you updated for my progress~~ ;D

note: Yup, I put my favourite rom in there, start linux MCE then select MAME, it's there...
The tab key menu works, control works...

Once again, thnx for the great guide~~  ;)

the next release will roll in the necessary orbiter UI. It can't be grafted onto the 0710 release because of API changes, sorry...

but, there is a complete orbiter UI on the way, for every single device.

abooreal, what did you change in the make file for x64?
Is the howto the same for x64 (apart from whatever you did to the make file)?

Yup, I followed the guide. I only changed the parts I described.  ;)

OK, I have got as far as making the Mame_Plugin without any problems. But how and what exactly do I need to change in the mame make file for x64??

The instructions are in a txt file within the source download. Either a readme or install file.

Thanks,
I added the option indicated in the sdlmame source readme.

I have added some of the roms from here http://mamedev.org/roms/ to my /home/public/data/games directory but their names dont appear in the LMCE games explorer. I have images for the games but the name on the right hand side reads "no matching rom"

Is this normal, or did my spidering not find a rom name list (it must have found the images!)

Apart from that, its all working pretty good on amd64! The games play well!
