kxmame cannot find roms

I am running mandriva 2008.

I have KXMAME 2.0 Beta and cannot get it to find the roms.

XMAME finds the roms just fine.

AFAIK I have the path for the roms correct in kxmame.

KXMAME will run the Robbyroto default game fine.

any ideas anyone ???

Problem Solved

My config files for Xmame were ina bit of a mess, and I figured it out myself.
don't actually think kxmame is reading the correct files, so I had to edit by hand and remove a few rougue XMAMERC files from higher directories.

The command xmame -showconfig was very helpful in showing me what config was actually being used by the emulator, and i worked backwards from there.

IIRC, the actual config options that kxmame expects don't quite match up to the last version of xmame. Under Settings -> Configure kxmame -> Kxmame there's an option that reads "Use xmame default options" which makes the game name the only parameter that gets passed to xmame.
