Fixed, quazip-qt4 is now a dependency, since Arch-provided quazip is now built against qt5 and bears a different name in the filesystem.

It fails to build:

@jswagner: I did update the ckecksums, but what I didn't know is that each time you download a tarball from the websvn of sourceforge, the checksum is different (the tarball must be made on-the-fly). Thus, I have to put the source archive somewhere else so that the checksum doesn't change every time.

jswagner commented on 2014-08-21 06:25

Checksums didn't get updated with the PKGBUILD?

Should build now.

PKGBUILD add depends='quazip'

add in Makefile:
LIBS = $(SUBLIBS) -lquazip -llzma -lz

Dead project is dead, no one is mirroring the archive, so all I can advise is to try mamepgui-svn:

The SVN repo works, but the M+GUI trunk hasn't been updated for ages, they're focusing on the W32 part of the project.

Anonymous comment on 2012-05-09 17:57

The download link is dead

trya commented on 2011-01-25 01:14

OK, I investigated a little more. M+GUI development has been moved to SVN and no official release has been made to date. Therefore, this package is not outdated.

trya commented on 2011-01-25 00:55

No sign of the Qt frontend in the sources available on SourceForge, maybe they're rewriting it from scratch...

That fixed it.

I was able to do some quick testing on x86_64 and i686. No noticable regressions on x86_64. On i686, it crashes during the first run (after selecting the mame binary); after which it starts up fine and everything works.

Thanks for the fix, I really appreciate it.

I somewhat fixed compilation with Qt 4.7, I can't guarantee the result will be bug-free.

trya commented on 2010-10-01 14:22

mamepgui seems incompatible with Qt 4.7, because it compiled well with Qt 4.6 before I updated. I'm investigating.

This works great on x86_64, but I am not able to get this to compile on i686. Hopefuly someone can shed some light on the problem.

Here are the last few lines of the build process:
/usr/include/QtCore/qstring.h:106:5: note: QString::QString(QChar)
/usr/include/QtCore/qstring.h:105:14: note: QString::QString(const QChar*)
