VICE 2.2 on Ubuntu 10.10

This is embarrassing because I’m a full month behind the times on this one. But I managed to scrape together an hour or two today, and test VICE 2.2 on Ubuntu 10.10.

And of course, the ancient how-to works fine.

The creepy error that was happening in 10.04 is still around, but luckily the fix is still very easy. Building the GnomeUI version (which is really just a GTK2 version) went cleanly.

One last thing: If checkinstall gives problems, stick with sudo make install. It works fine.

    It would be cool to have these old C64 classics converted to a mobile phone :)

    Karateka! I played that for many fine hours on my Apple ][+ back in…let’s see, the Cretaceous Period. ;)

    I’m glad some of you could get this working. I sure can’t. I cannot get the permission to copy the kerel file etc into the proper folder as stated in the old how to. Oh well…

      Could you be more specific about the problem you’re having? If you’re building the program from scratch, you shouldn’t need to copy any files. The sudo make install step should take care of that for you.
