    Default VisualBoyAdvance in OpenSUSE?

    Does anyone know if I could find an RPM that would work for VBA? Because when I tried to make it from source, I got this long ass compiler error....

    ....Ya know what, I probably shouldn't post it, as it would stretch the page. A bunch of stuff on
    Code:
    ../armdis.cpp:159: warning: deprecated conversion from string constant to char*
    .

    Repeated ad nausiem after every function...

    Hi
    That looks like a gcc4.3 funny... oh well. If you search here
    for visualboyadvance;
    http://software.opensuse.org/search]Get It
    It's in the
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit.../openSUSE_11.0
    repository.

    Hi
    You can click the 1-click install button, it will add the repository,
    select your architecture and install the file for you. I would
    recommend that you then go into YaST and disable the repository after
    the install has finished.

    Or if you look in the i586 (which is 32bit) and manually download the
    file and install, but you may have to download other files if it has
    any dependencies.

    Code:
    wget
    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators/openSUSE_11.0/i586/VisualBoyAdvance-1.7.2-4.3.i586.rpm
    
    Then run;
    sudo rpm -Uhv VisualBoyAdvance-1.7.2-4.3.i586.rpm

    Hi
    Do you mean in the config /etc/VisualBoyAdvance.cfg file?

    If so, I would start a new thread in the games section of the forum?
