I have just compiled arnold, the amstrad 8 bit computer emulator (CPC464/664/6128, CPC464+/664+/6128+, GX4000 console and KC-Compat german clone, lol) on an amd64 and seems it does work fine but there's not window menu (the windows version has one). Is this normal in the *nix version or is just in my compiled one on the amd64? My problem is that I cannot run any rom on my laptop due to this thing. If you remember, to play a tape yo need to press the crtl+enter(the little one of the keypad, not the big, but laptops don't have it). Perhaps I could remap that key

Can't believe that there's not an ebuild in portage for this yet. Perhaps CPC's were a bit of Europeans and not many people does know about these fantastic 8 bit computers, pretty much like the speccys here. If anyone can do an ebuild, please!!. After seing that there are rpm's and .debs, I think gentoo should have at least one ;-)

Arnold's website:

http://arnold.emuunlim.com/
To compile the emulator, is needed the *nix source code and the patch

Well, If anyone has Arnold running, please tell me about ;-)

thanks

Hi, there is a poorly written ebuild here:
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=83640
but I am also interested in an Amstrad CPC emulator and also find that it is a shame Gentoo does not have one in its tree! So I had a look in Arnold, which seems pretty popular, so I'll try to get it running, and so far, there are optional dependencies on DEPEND=">=media-libs/libsdl-1.2.0 >=x11-libs/gtk+-2.2.0 virtual/X" and the first two, at least, should be triggered by use flags as they are optional. (Are you familiar with writing ebuilds? want to help?)

But if you do not have gtk(?), that could be the reason why you cannot see the menus.

I also found

http://tacgr.emuunlim.com
...

So definitely! Gentoo needs a CPC emulator!!! for all those awesome games in 4 colors!!!!

sram, fruity frank... my childhood...

mmm... So I have tried to make a better ebuild but I am not satisfied with it: it says gtk and sdl are optional, but I cannot have it to compile without. At least I have the dependencies right:
