Olivier's architectural direction for the memory system


Are you referring to the total revamp that, so far as I know, has only been publicized in the form of a vague outline? (At least that to-do is only two months old now; I hope it won't be still there as is in two years.)

As I understand it, there's a stronger-form version in his head, based on (among other things) the Emulators.com white papers about TLBs and stuff. If you have specific ideas, it's possible to reply to that outline (as others have about other outlines).

I think the minimum OS version needs to be updated because mame now requires gcc 5, and that doesn't come with the last Xcode version that can be installed in 10.7. Will not install in brew, either. I think 10.9 is the bare minimum to build mame now.

Said it before, I'll say it again: I build MAME on 10.6.8 "Snow Leopard" any time I want using Clang 3.7 and libc++ from MacPorts. If you're building with GCC on OSX, you're pretty much unsupported at this point.

Then instructions to install and build with the necessary clang version should be stickied instead of this, or in addition.

This thread is not the official documentation. Please refer to the documentation site:
http://docs.mamedev.org/initialsetup/compilingmame.html

Note that it lists 10.9 as a prerequisite for the "happy path", and also lists MacPorts prerequisites for 10.6. You can submit proposed changes via pull requests.
