i'm getting stuck with a problem, the keyboard don't working when use advmame and when i use advmenu the game load but tab menu freeze the game, or this menu (i think) don't recognizing sdl keyboard commands, because the system have all sdl libs installed.

This doesn't seem to build any longer on Arch or Manjaro. It balks about multiple definitions and dumps.

I just tried it on my other arch64 machine and it build flawlessly. Perhaps you use some tool like yaourt that changed something in your include paths?

You need to update your PKGBUILD so it works with pacman 4.1 (which requires a package() function): build() { cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}" ./configure --prefix=/usr make } package() { cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}" make bindir="${pkgdir}/usr/bin/" \ datadir="${pkgdir}/usr/share/" \ mandir="${pkgdir}/usr/share/man/" \ pkgdocdir="${pkgdir}/usr/share/doc/${pkgname}/" \ install } Also, namcap tells me advancemame depends on freetype2.
