There are two alternatives : use the binary tuxnes-0.74-i586-pc-linux-gnu
> > tuxnes-0.74-i586-pc-linux-gnu.gz from
http://tuxnes.sourceforge.net/download.php
'gunzip' <package>' , 'chmod +x tuxnes-0.74-i586-pc-linux-gnu'.

Or compile 'tuxnes-0.75/' with gcc-2.95 .:
cpp-2.95-2.95.4-23.i386.rpm, gcc-2.95-2.95.4-23.i386.rpm

# rpm -Uvh <package> <package>

The 2 items are converted "Debian Sarge" packages from
http://ftp.gva.es/mirror/debian2/pool/main/g/gcc-2.95/
cpp-2.95_2.95.4-22_i386.deb, gcc-2.95_2.95.4-22_i386.deb

# 'alien -r <package> <package>' will make the rpm's
'alien-8.72' is the one to be preferred.
.....
'cd tuxnes-0.75/' .. './configure' .. 'make CC=gcc-2.95'
.....

I got the binary & in gnome-terminal changed to folder where file was extracted.Then
~>./tuxnes-0.74-i586-pc-linux-gnu <GameFile>
caused that file to be loaded & playing begins
BUT
screen size is small even after resizing window or giving option of -G=800*600 on command line.

I think, it should be '-G=800x600'

instead of '-G=800*600'.

Hmmm...

....thanks for the link to the binary. This is frustrating.

The binary does launch, but only from command line and only in a little window. Playing with the various options gives only a big window around the little window. This is true for the G and E options.

Now, I've tried to grab gtuxnes but can't seem to compile...

Try the method mentioned in post # 2 :

'make CC=gcc-2.95'

Thanks, that was a trick for compiling tuxnes. However, I do have the .74 version running. It is just very small. I am trying to compile the gtuxnes .75 version and get an error message. (Oh, I have GCC 4.2-24 installed.)

I was then trying to install the gtuxnes version. I got an error message there and realized I didn't have teh GTK libaries installed. I did have GTK2 libraries.

I then ran make again and get a bunch of error messages, but do get a working gtuxnes binary.

Code:
kai@xwing:~/downloads/gtuxnes-0.75/gtuxnes-0.75> make
gcc `gtk-config --cflags` -c gtuxnes.c -o gtuxnes.o
gtuxnes.c: In function ‘run_tuxnes’:

                panels.o debug.o config.o `gtk-config --cflags --libs`
kai@xwing:~/downloads/gtuxnes-0.75/gtuxnes-0.75>

Thinking that - since I've had NESTicle working on my wife's Win2K system for some years I tried running that in both Crossover Office - killed the X session - and VMWare.

Neither worked.

I found the answer. I had also tried nestopia but never could get it to build. However, someone on the openSUSE mailing list suggested I use the one-click-install service - http://software.opensuse.org/search?...p=1&q=nestopia - which did the trick.

I now have nestopia running with all the time-wasters - erm, games - that I need.

Thanks for everyone's help!!

TO ALL READERS
Here is what I have learnt from this thread
Code:
(1)'./configure' followed by 'make CC=gcc-2.95' even 4.2(which is my gcc version) instead of 2.95 does not help.
Go for the compiled binary at http://tuxnes.sourceforge.net/packag...c-linux-gnu.gz.
(2)try option --enlarge=2 to get good view of game window.
(3)here is list of keyboard controls
Arrows  				Move (P1)
A,C or Space		     		A button (P1)
Z, X or D          		 	B button (P1)
Add              			Select button (P1)
Enter            			Start button (P1)
BackSpace   				Reset game
H, J, K, L  				Move (P2)
B           				A button (P2)
V           				B button (P2)
F           				Select button (P2)
G           				Start button (P2)
[/{         				Insert Coin (Left)
]/}         				Insert Coin (Right)
If this helps you than thank me by pressing thumbs up button(in the same way i have thanked posts found useful).Thank You.
