hey everyone, first post here.
i was a kubuntu user for two years when i made the permanent switch to linux. i got fed up with it’s lack of development. (i was/am not mad at jonathan riddell, just canonical for only hiring one kde (kubuntu) developer). one can really, really tell there is only one dev, as it is horrendous compared to the default opensuse install. i did my research and chose opensuse as my distro of choice and man i haven’t been disappointed! i am testing 11.0 with kde 4.1 and i love it! thanks opensuse devs.
i was astounded at the amount of programs/packages available, the number dwarfs that available for ubuntu. i have two apps that i’d like to use but i can’t find packages for. i searched with google, on packman & rpmfind with no luck. (i have the packman repo enabled).
does anyone know where i can find (32bit) opensuse (or compatible) packages of qcomicbook (0.4) and kxmame (2.0-svn w/ sdlmame support)?
/agree … I really don’t recommend using rpmfind because the packages aren’t distro-specific and while the may work they may also mess things up majorly.
Always try webpin and software.opensuse.org first.
BTW searching software.opensuse.org is integrated into SuSE’s firefox.
I found suse-specific packages for qcomicbook but not for kxmame.

no, i think he meant (instead of “repackaging it”) find the source
and compile and install it on your machine…
an easy way to find the source, is to google (for example)
google’s first hit is THE guy <http://linux.bydg.org/~yogin/> who
wrote/writes qcomicbook (and might appreciate a small, thank you
donation from you)
a google on kxmame home turns up as the number one hit its source at http://sourceforge.net/ where many Linux (and other open source)
software can be found…
grab the latest stable then compile and install and you are done…AND
have the latest and greatest…
if you don’t know how, find a compile/install how-to and get crackin’
