Ok, it has been compiling now for about 5 minutes.

I commented out the line as per the post above and working against the decompressed mame0155s.zip

I did;
./endings
make clean
make

I will report back, success or failure.

The compile completed to the end without issue.

As suggested by R. Belmont, opening the file src/osd/sdl/sdl.mak in a text editor and finding this line:

# SDL_LIBVER = sdl2

Removing the # so it simply reads

SDL_LIBVER = sdl2

and then saving did the trick.

Summary:
Installed SDL2 and commented out the line as per above..
Did "make clean" followed by "make". This is what did the trick. Just in case, I also entered "./endings" before the make commands. Everything else on http://forums.bannister.org/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=58897&page=1 remains the same with this one exception. So be sure to follow the URL in the previous sentence and after you complete all of STEP 2 simply follow the above comment removal steps and you should be good to go.

** It's noteworthy to understand that as of this writing the github repo include the comment fix so in no time this post will become redundant.


A huge and special thank you to R. Belmont for assisting me throughout the process.

AFAIK, ./endings is no longer needed.

Hi Carbon

It didn't seem to hurt, truth be told I am not sure what it is for.

I think it was only needed if you applied a patch, but as there are no longer 'u...' releases, it is not needed anymore.

But as you already noticed, it doesn't hurt.
