That's great, thanks! I was missing the 32-bit iso. I'm uploading the 64-bit iso right now, then I'll upload this one to the ftp too.

Hi Everyone,

Like others I'm waiting for the link to download the 64 bits version.
If you want to create a torrent file, I will be happy to share my seedbox (100 mbps) to host the file...

I mean with softwares like UltraIso and similar...

Thanks.

Here is the patched 64-bit binary of AdvanceMenu+ as I have it in my installation, just copy it into /usr/games/bin/

A warning about the new versions of the live-cd: there seems to be a problem after installing the 32-bit version, the system will not boot, however it works when booting as live-cd. The 64-bit version just won't boot anyway. Ves is working to fix them. In the meanwhile I'm removing the links from the project's site.

btw, just a quick question...

i currently have an ati 4350 card in the cabinet, running groovymame.  i have a spare hd5770 that is obviously alot more powerful, but would i see any benefit from installing that card into the machine to replace the 4350?

64-bit cd installs fine, but when it reboots, it gives an error:

Booting Groovy Arcade Linux.

Error 15: File not found...

Clean install worked, but now i cant get my roms to appear...

Not sure if i'm doing it right, but i mount my roms drive and then point the mame rom directory (new feature) to the roms directory and nothing shows...

It appears to be listing the same path (that i chose in the mame roms option) in mame.ini and advance.rc files, but still not showing.

Of course it's possible that i'm doing it wrong, so maybe calamity can confirm this new feature is working correctly?

I have a seperate hdd with the folder structure /MAME/roms...

In the past, i just selected the roms drive and amended the path in the 2 files, /home/roms/MAME/roms and it worked...

Hi MonkeyJug,

There was a bug in the previous "Change Dir Roms" option, now Ves has fixed it, run "Update Menu" with internet connection enabled, you'll see an error message, ignore it. Then exit gasetup and run it again, and the option should work fine. You may need to edit Advmenu.rc manually if it was modified by the previous option.

I'm afraid I haven't managed to install the new iso into a pendrive, it keeps failing during the autopartitioning process.

Aah, ok. Now i understand! I will try that...

Btw, calamity, do you know if i would benefit from installing an ATI HD5770 to replace my 4350 in my Cab?  Will it even work?

According to bitbytebit the Linux drivers do support 15 KHz for the HD 5000 family so it's a matter of trying but I guess it will work. You won't get better performance for MAME however, so only benefit may be in using other emulators that are 3D intensive.

Well, most people (me included) have a working Windows system that required hundreds of hours to setup and are reluctant to replace it with some uncertain new system or mess with a different hard drive. However, IMHO the possibilty of installing this system to a pendrive and thus have a dual boot machine will make many people decide to give it a try. This has been possible since long but required manual editing of some config files, which cuts the amount of potential users by 99%.

There were some files that needed to be replaced so it could boot from USB. I find it a better approach to actually burn a CD (you can use a RW CD) to boot from it, and then *install* the system into an USB pendrive.
