I can't get M.A..M.E to see my roms

I saw another problem.
Previously, the cfg directory, which stores the game settings, was created and read from ~/.mame.
Now it is created and read from the same directory from which mame was started.

Maybe a tip for others with M.A.M.E.

After you have it working tell yast to not update mame.

Sooner or later updating mame will make the roms stop working.
