I have installed MAME on ubuntu and the version is .231

Searching about I have not been able to find a romset for .231 and am currently downloading .232

Are there any gotchas that I should be aware of? Known issues and games I should keep in mind.

Thanks in advance.

any particular reason you're running 231? What version of ubuntu are you running? You could always compile the latest version (247) without much trouble at all.


Package mame

bionic (18.04LTS) (games): Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator (MAME) [universe]
0.195+dfsg.1-2: amd64 arm64 armhf i386 s390x
focal (20.04LTS) (games): Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator (MAME) [universe]
0.220+dfsg.1-1: amd64 arm64 armhf ppc64el s390x
impish (21.10) (games): Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator (MAME) [universe]
0.235+dfsg.1-1ubuntu1: amd64 arm64 armhf ppc64el s390x
jammy (22.04LTS) (games): Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator (MAME) [universe]
0.242+dfsg.1-1: amd64 arm64 armhf ppc64el s390x
kinetic (games): Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator (MAME) [universe]
0.245+dfsg.1-1: amd64 arm64 armhf ppc64el s390x

From version to version, probably 95+% of roms don't change so unless there's a specific game that you want to play, most should work fine.
