Angry Snes9X won't run...


I untarred the file and then what should I do to make it run? I tried to run the snes9x file but it say something about a missing library. Is there something I should install to make it run correctly?

Welcome to the wonderful world of Linux!

I looked at the program and ran into the same problem. After doing some checking I found the updated Libraries at rpmfind.net. I recommend using GnoRPM because it will check for dependencies. If there are any other dependencies for that library, then you can download them from RPMfind.net, find those dependencies, download from rpmfind.net, find those dependencies, etc, etc

One word of caution, I have killed my box by upgrading the wrong libraries. Gnome relies on several of these so you may want to do some checking before upgrading.

Another option is to download the source code and compile it yourself. It sounds harder than it is and it will allow the application to run on the lib's you already have installed.

Hope this helps.
