Hey, have an update! I was able to fix the problem. Like most I started the unpack/untar of the tarball as root. Didn't exit root mode after I did that.
On a whim I deleted the unpacked dir (I had modified the config) and unpacked from the start. Then exited root mode, cd'ed to the dir:
then ran the following:
./snes9x <path to rom>/<rom name including extension>
The ./snes9x is to tell it to look for the exec in the dir you're currently in (explicit declaration) because it wouldn't accept just the exec. Turns out that (if you read the readme) it's a known issue, but they didn't post a work around. If you exec as root it tries to launch the full-screen module, which is a broken module that hasn't been used for some time (2.4.x kernel?). Exec as user over-rides this. You can't use full-screen but it works.
