Mess PPA for Ubuntu

Postby General_Faliure » Tue Sep 11, 2012 2:51 pm

Hello.

We finally have a Mess package for Ubuntu.
To be found at Wallyweek: http://sdlmame.wallyweek.org/.
So you don't have to compile it yourself anymore.

Enjoy

I just put Ubuntu on a laptop. My main concern is 3D accelleration right now.

Saw that, very cool. Wanted to compile one of these combined mame/mess executables at some point and see what the outcome is

You might want to go for Lubuntu, Xubuntu or linux Mint Xfce, (my choice), they are much lighter desktops.
Ubuntu's Unity desktop has a lot of overhead, according to Phoronix.
