The package now compiles on build.opensuse.org (build log)... however, the problem is that only openSUSE Tumbleweed (and I think Factory as well) have gcc >= 4.9. So it will only be available for future versions of openSUSE smile!

The repository is here (only for "openSUSE Tumbleweed" at the moment, both 32- and 64-bit versions are available):
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/rreucher:/mame/

Note that this package

a) has not been tested very thoroughly yet!

b) adds /etc/skel/.mame/mame.ini with the correct setup for some important search paths (hash, plugins, bgfx shaders and languages) that get installed to /usr/share/mame. So existing users should copy /etc/skel/.mame/mame.ini to ~/.mame/mame.ini in order to make this binary fully work. New users will get the right setup automatically. I didn't find an easier way to accomplish that without patching the source (to prepend a system-wide inipath), and then be somewhat non-standard.

The post-install 'scriptlet' will print a message that explains this to the installer (root, which is supposed to know what to do smile!).

c) comes with all relevant MAME tools (probably also irrelevant ones, I know just a bunch of them and how they are used). It does not contain split (conflicts with /usr/bin/split from coreutils), src2html and srcclean.

My openSUSE Tumbleweed repository has been updated to MAME 0.174. The package is still "experimental" as it hasn't been confirmed to work for anyone else than myself smile.

CentOS is a de-branded Red Hat Enterprise Linux, so it can use RPMFusion.org packages for the corresponding RHEL version.

Fixed.

In other news, this pkgs.org thing doesn't seem to be all it's cracked up to be.

Mame is actually in Fedora proper - RPM Fusion is no longer required. There are no packages built for CentOS though. You may use the following link:
