Unhappy What happened to Pacman?

Something odd has happened to me. I just upgraded to XMAME 0.66 so I could play all my arcade game ROMS, but after installing everything, none of my ROMS work! I've got the XMAME rpm from their website, the x11 renderer, and the "xmame-base" rpm, and though some of the games work, others quit and complain about missing ROM files, even though they worked perfectly before. Has anyone else had this happen to them? I figured more of my ROMS would work after upgrading, not less.

Perhaps the ROM file format changed in a non-backwards compatable way? This sort of question is most likely better asked on a MAME users forum.

What kind of error shows??? Is posible that you don't have the xmamerc file in the correct path or have a bad configuration.
