HI there

I'm trying to compile mame on an ARM system with just 1GB RAM. I know I could cross-compile it, but I'd like it to compile on the ARM machine as a kind of experiment smile

So, is it possible to compile it withou the HUGE tms57002.c ?
I can tweak any sources you point me to wink


thanks!

The best workaround for low RAM on tms57002 is to force it -O0 (when you see it hit that file, CTRL-C and make OPTIMIZE=0). I am compiling on an ARM system with 512MB RAM (OLPC XO 1.75) so eventually that and other things useful for ARM compiles will get automated.

I'm told that ARM is a dead end though ;-)

Kevin Kofler (author of that post) is a fuckwit - I have had the displeasure of dealing with this guy in the TI graphing calculator hacking scene. Even though he is technically capable to some extent, he has a unique talent for being an arrogant, self-righteous douche and pissing everyone else off. If you ever see him approaching a community, I strongly recommend doing everything you can to keep him out. You will regret ever having anything to do with him.

I will definitely try it. Thanks, Belmont!

As for the ARM rant, I find it childish. Arguments are weak and narrow-minded.

Kevin's rant about ARM being a dead end, or Vas' meta-rant about Kevin?
