Ok guys, I had success compiling Sdlmame now.
False alarm and my fault: when I've installed a dual boot with Debian it took the Ubuntu swap partition for itself and reformatted it changing its UUID.
Now I've rearranged the fstab and I have my swap partition back for Ubuntu too. Sdlmame compiles smoothly now.
Thank you for your support smile

I'm here with another request grin

The problem is I can't use sdlmame with my joypad exclusively because it seems unable to stop the screensaver timeout.
Only keyboard and mouse seem able to prevent the screensaver, my joypad seems not to be "seen" by gnome-screensaver.

I've tried uninstalling it and installing Xscreensaver instead, but it behaves exactly the same as the gnome-screensaver does.

Are you aware of a way to use your joypad/joystick without manually disabling the screensaver every time you start sdlmame?

I thought most screensavers nowadays did recognize joypads. I'm not sure if there's anything we can do in SDLMAME to help that (if anyone does know an appropriate API I'm listening).

BTW, so everyone's aware of how u1 is going to work, I've posted an explanation.

Basically you will no longer download separate SDLMAME packages from my blog, instead the baseline source on mamedev.org will contain the SDLMAME components. Couriersud and I will still be working on the SDL-specific parts, it's just the time difference to get the SDL version will drop to zero smile

So does that mean that submissions for SDL code have to go through submit@mamedev.org or do we still post patches here?

And it still means that (SDL)MAME releases are (also) announced here? Otherwise I could start monitoring the news at mamedev.org instead (which I already do occasionally anyway)... I find it a great step forward, BTW!
