To get a small overview, feel free to read the documentation and install the deb or rpm package which should run on every distribution.

Where is the source code? The packages labelled "source" actually contain the compiled binaries...

I don't think i fully understand what this does. I just compiled sdlmame, and was upset because kxmame doesnt work with it.. So i saw this..

How can i get this to work with sdlmame?

thanks,

Very interesting ....

I'm developing emuexec and kdeaddons-emulation on kubuntu. Its tested on edgy and dapper and has no problems like this at all.

What does dpkg -l "Package" show ?
Have you tried to download it again ?
Is emuexec installable using dpkg -i ?

Thanks for getting back so quickly. Here you go:

- What does dpkg -l "Package" show ?

ingo@dicker:/downloads$ sudo dpkg -l kdeaddons-emulation_3.5.3-2_all.deb
No packages found matching kdeaddons-emulation_3.5.3-2_all.deb.

- Have you tried to download it again ?

yes, but no joy

- Is emuexec installable using dpkg -i ?

installs like a dream

It's uploaded again and I also tested the installation on my dapper workstation.

Everything should be correct. If errors occur, the package you have downloaded must be from your browser cache, so try to clear it.

Just as you said :) I flushed my Firefox cache and it still didn't work (must have done it wrong?), tried dillo and now I've got this great app as well.

Thanks a bunch

Was a pleasure to help :D

Now It's your task to gimme feedback and wishes for the next release :)

By the way .... proper ducumentation and online tutorial will be in the next version.

currently, man emuexec will be your friend.

Or just go to startmenu -> emulation -> Online -> Documentation for the half outdated documentation.

Okay ... then there must be a problem on sourceforge!

I'll upload the package again now

Please test it again in 1 hour and make clear that your browser-cache was cleared.

This has probably been mentioned: for SUSE and Mandriva, prefix=/opt/kde3 is fine; Fedora Core users need prefix=/usr...

Sorry for delay ... Ill pack it at satureday.

Then you can test it an gimme feedback. As already mentioned, emuexec should work in every distribution, so if you wanna test, just install and edit emuexec.conf by hand.

If you want to skip this, just use commandline options which are used prior to emuexec.conf.

I've used Debian/Ubuntu, Fedora and openSUSE. In terms of file location, Fedora and openSUSE are identical, with one exception:

openSUSE puts regular programs in /usr, KDE programs in /opt/kde3 and GNOME programs in /opt/gnome. There are other programs that get put under /opt, but for the most part, those are the ones that count.

Fedora Core distros place everything under /usr and don't put anything in /opt at all. So the only difference between an openSUSE package and a Fedora package is that openSUSE needs the KDE stuff in /opt/kde3, and Fedora needs the KDE stuff in /usr. You're right; since emuexec is supposed to be generic, it should be in /usr in both.

Okay ... Fedore-Packages for kdeaddons-emulation will be out this evening. For emuexec, just use the existing rpm file.

When I try to install emuexec on suse 10.2 I get:
error: Failed dependencies:
perl(emuexec_joystick) is needed by emuexec-1.2-2.i386

What package do I need (there is no emuexec_joystick)

Any news update for me ?

Did you try to install it with skipping this warning ?

After this, just try "joyhelper -i" to verify that emuhelper is running correctly and gimme the result.

It works, thanks. I installed with --nodeps flag.
joyhelper -i
prints:
Error: cannot open /dev/input/js0
Which is correct (I don't have a joystick)

Hmmmmmmm ... very mysterous!

You can just forget this dependency cause emuexec_joystick.pm is already in the emuexec-package. It gets required by emuhelper as a perl mod using a simple trick. I just dont wanted to look up all distributions for the corret pathes of perl mods, so for emuexec and all helper applications, /usr/share/emulation/lib/generic is the right path. Maybe in the next version I will include emuexec_joystick into joyhelper to solve this problem. For now, just add /usr/share/emulation/lib/generic to the search path of perl your perl mods.

I figured I'd mention that the KMenu doesn't show up properly in Mandriva and equivalents, due to Menudrake's hijacking of the KMenu setup. I'd suggest a fix, but I don't use Mandriva (I use Fedora Core), and I dunno exactly how Menudrake works.
