Installing Vice emulator

Postby dritz33 » Sun Feb 24, 2013 9:13 pm

I've been trying to install the Vice Commodore emulator for a little while now, with no luck.

i've tried downloading it from Package Manager, Synaptic, and apt-get, and it will install fine using all of those options. But when I try to run any of the emulators in terminal, I get

getting symbol guess_format failed!
Illegal instruction

I can't seem to find a fix for this, so if anyone can walk me through it would be great :)

I also tried to install Frodo as a second option. As I've never compiled before, I really have no idea what I'm I do cd Src, and then run ./configure

It comes up with the error configure: error: Neither X nor SVGAlib found, don't know what target to use.

A fix to either of these problems would be greatly appreciated, thanks all :)

Linux Mint can't distribute the ROM images you need to run the emulator (files containing a memory dump from the original machines), as those are copyrighted. So VICE comes without the ROM images needed to run it.

We can't help you here with illegal activities such as obtaining copyrighted materials, so locking this topic. See the forum rules.
