Sorry I don't know what page you are talking about. Have you been able to work out what linux distribution you are running? The following command may tell you:

Code:
 cat /etc/*release

Then, as I suggested earlier, try this:

http://www.yellowdoglinux.com/suppor...nintendo.shtml

I can't answer you about "the download link". That's too vague.

I'm about to head off now. Good luck.

Cheers,

Evo2.

The nasm assembler is an 80x86 assembler. You use a different processor.
From the Wikipedia entry for zsnes:
Quote:
The emulator is written mainly in in low-level assembly language for x86 processors, in order to run more smoothly on slower processors. However, as a result it cannot be ported to devices that do not run on Intel-compatible processors, as such a port would require the majority of the codebase be entirely re-written from scratch. Thus, for example, there is no possibility of ZSNES ever running as homebrew software on the Xbox 360 or Nintendo Wii, which utilize the PowerPC processor.
It goes on to mention the zsnes9x project which is written in C++.
The zsnes9x download page doesn't list any mirrors. The zsnes9x-gtk project does have a source tarball.

http://code.google.com/p/snes9x-gtk/

Look in the gtk or unix directories for the configure file. Without nasm, it doesn't set the assembler core options.

Evo. I started researching my answer just after your prior post.

Instead run su -c 'yum install nasm' and, when prompted, enter the password of "root."

Alternatively, just enter su - and the password of "root" to open a terminal session as "root." Do, however, be careful since you can cause extensive system damage whilst running as "root."

I need an accessible download for a nasm.rpm but can't find one. If I go to the link mentioned above it just goes to a page that says: "Page not Found". Does anyone know of a site I can go to for an accessible download?

I was able to build the snes9k-gtk source. If you don't have nasm, it will still build. Some configure options will be disabled.

Are you certain that you downloaded the source for the PowerPC or that it includes PPC support?

Both the snes9k and the binary download links provided earlier are dead ends. You may want to start over with the snes9k-gtk source. Cd to the gtk/ directory and run "./configure --without-assembler"

The nasm assembler if available for the PPC may be used for the purpose of cross compiling. It can generate code that you would install on an Intel based computer.


The Yellow Dog DVD does not supply a nasm package. That avenue sounds like a dead end.

I finally found a nasm.ppc.rpm:
http://www.rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/fed....fc11.ppc.html
And using the commands above given by PTrenholme I was able to install nasm!!!

Thanks all for your support!
