this is strange. If you installed it correctly, it should be able to find it.
Here are some suggestions, of what might have gone wrong:
- did you do a "make install"?
[size=1]to install a program from source, you need to issue "./configure && make && make install" for the installation to place the files in the appropriate places.
- are there any settings, you need to adjust?
maybe the program only checks in one place and you need to tell it where
- is the program "executable"?
If you can locate the executable the gxmame cant, you should check, if it is executable: "ls -l", check for an "x" in the mod string.
I hope any of this helped you.
