5 thoughts on “FS-UAE for openSUSE 12.2

  1. Thanks for looking into the problem ! I’ve downloaded the last version of the launcher for Opensuse but it still doesn’t work : it might be a problem with my computer, i’ll delve into it later ! Here’s the message I get from the terminal : FS-UAE Launcher 9.8.7

    Update: I actually found out what was wrong : i didn’t install “python-setuptools” … Seems to work fine now : thank you very much !

    • python-setuptools was also missing as a install dependency in the RPM spec file, is correctly added in the next version. (Though when I installed openSUSE 12.2, the launcher worked after I implemented the workaround for openSUSE’s python bug, so python-setuptools must already have been installed by the openSUSE installer in my case…)

  2. Brilliant job ! I tested FS-UAE on Opensuse 12.2 64 bits with Gnome 3 and it worked perfectly. No luck with the launcher, but hell, you can’t have everything !
    Thank you for building an Opensuse version and for all your hard work.

    • Thanks! 🙂 But I think you should be able to have everything (in this case ;-)) I haven’t tried it myself on openSUSE yet (packages are automatically built by the openSUSE build service), but I’m downloading the installation media now and will try it in a virtual machine.

    • I installed openSUSE 12.2 and tried to run the launcher. I turns out that there is no bug in the launcher. Instead, openSUSE 12.2 has a patched find-function in gettext.py (in Python 2.7.3) with a bug which is not present in stock Python 2.7.3. openSUSE 12.2’s version erroneously throws an exception when a translation file is not found for the current language due running len() on ‘None’. I should file a bug report with openSUSE…

      Anyway, I have added a workaround in FS-UAE Launcher (the error is caught and ignored), so version 1.3.26u2 (available now in the repo) should start also on openSUSE 12.2!
