xmame ROMs problem

Hi, i installed and configured XMAME and GXMAME.
I read all the posts about this emulator but i can not fix this problem.
I have a directory with all the roms i have, but only a few works correctly.
For example i i try to run outrun

xmame.x11 outrun -rompath ".gnome-desktop/roms/"

it works

your missing roms. The rom sets change from version to version. IE- that bubble bobble 2 may have worked on mame 65, but wont on 78. You need to keep your romsets up to date.
