Is standalone switchres tool maintained ?
« on: April 01, 2017, 07:53:26 am »
Hi,

Until recently i used switchres standalone 1.52 to generate some 15khz modelines. I provide it with a little project i maintain on github: https://github.com/TiBeN/15khz-arcade-pkg .
Unfortunatelly it doesnt work anymore since Ubuntu 16.10: a buffer overflow is thrown when it is launched.

Is there any more recent standalone version of this tool ? It seems to evolve only as part of groovymame now. Maybe there is a way to build a standalone version from groovymame sources ?

I have found this github repository https://github.com/Ansa89/switchres which offers a version 1.53 but it does not compile on Ubuntu (seems a libxml dependency issue, https://github.com/Ansa89/switchres/issues/1).

I don't know if this tool is used by a lot of people but personnally i find it very useful outside of Mame.

Ok so i found why 1.52 segfaults. It has nothing to do with Ubuntu 16.10 and in fact it works well. It was a problem on my system only, the $PATH env var was messy, some paths were listed twice.

I'm still interrested about the status of this tool though.
