Ok, let's start a new thread as the previous one has more than 100 posts now. wink

After a while, SDLMAME 0.125 is finally packaged and ready for download .
At present only the package for 8.04 is available; one suitable for 7.10 will follow soon.

Release note: from Hardy on, SDLMAME will be linked against the libexpat1 package, as it has finally reached release 2.x. Previously, expat code supplied with SDLMAME source was used, as packaged version (1.95 in Gutsy) made cheat engine segfault.

Enjoy!
cool

Hi wallyweek,

I've tried your Gutsy package. There's a problem with the SDL versioning as it's expecting SDL of a higher version but the sdl package in the Gutsy repo doesn't provide it.

Same problem : The package expects the >= 1.2.13, but the version installed in Gutsy is the 1.2.11....

I think perhaps wallyweek built the package on Gutsy with the environment for Hardy. In either case, it's either the new sdl package gets backported or wallyweek rebuilds it.

I'm sorry, I've been away in the last few days and I'm at work at present.

I'll have the package rebuilt and uploaded (hopefully) this evening.

@ wallyweek
do you have any control or influence over the sdlmame packages in the ubuntu repo? (i guess i'm asking if you're the maintainer or know the maintainer).

if you are or you do know the maintainer, we could use an update in the repo...
(i'm on intrepid & the latest version in the repo is 0.123, although i am using your 0.125 packages).

I am the maintainer, but I can't update it directly as I am not an uploader. Furthermore, this will be the first upload I propose, and I have to review the sponsoring process. i.e. it will take some time. wink

I also guess updated versions will be available for intrepid only, so unless arranging some backporting process, I'll have to keep maintaining unofficial packages on my site. I hope to sort this out soon. shocked

Just a question: are you using binary .deb package for hardy or did you build a binary for intrepid from source .src package?
